Happy Birthday, Red Cross Apps!

My how time flies.

It has been a year since the initiation of the American Red Cross First Aid app, and in that short time period, people across the country have downloaded the now five available apps more than 3 million times. Wowzers, right?

The First Aid app, the most popular of the five, has been downloaded more than 1.4 million times.  After its success, four more apps related to specific disasters were launched: hurricane, earthquake, wildfire and tornado.

During the Oklahoma tornadoes this past May, the Tornado App became the number one free weather app and even rose to number 14 of all free apps, yielding 167,000 new downloads.

Those awaiting the affects of Superstorm Sandy found comfort in the Hurricane App, with one user writing, “While waiting for Hurricane Sandy to arrive, I had no TV updates so this was great to help me.”  The stories and positive feedback from these apps go on, and it is clear that each one provides life-saving information and news to people across the country.

Help celebrate the one year anniversary of these life-saving, user friendly apps and DOWNLOAD THE APPS TODAY!  Red Cross apps can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross.
