Happy New Year-Why NEW Z5 Mobile for iPhone and iPad?(#5)-Quick 911 Calls

The best video communication software for VRS and point-to-point–Z5 Mobile for iPhone and iPad!

It is available now!

What makes the Z5 different from the other software videophones–many things, but calling 911 is quick.  After you enter the app, you see yourself.  

To make a 911 call, click the information icon (upper left), then click 911, a message will come on to make sure this is a 911 call. If it is an EMERGENCY , just click “YES”, and in a short time an video interpreter will come on to facilitate the call. If this is not an emergency or you clicked “911” by mistake, just click “NO”.

Only a few steps to call 911–this saves critical minutes in an EMERGENCY! Other apps require many steps to make a 911 call.  So easy.  So simple.

There is another way to call 911, by clicking “9 1 1” on the dialpad and then the green video icon. See this link. When you do this, you will not get a yes/no popup to verify. It will go directly to the video interpreter.
