We've all been frustrated or scared when the person we need isn’t answering.

We all understand the feeling of trying to reach someone in an urgent situation when they aren’t answering their phone. Panic turns to frustration, soon followed by anger. You quickly realize that the methods you rely on for everyday communication, namely calls, texts, and messages, aren’t effective when you’re in a critical situation.

NeedUNow completes the communication puzzle, giving you the ability to send or receive an audible notification, even if the receiving phone is set to silent.
