The I’ve Been Violated App allows victims to create an audio or video recording to confi-dentially capture the details of an incident. The creators of the app, the Institute for the Study of Coherence and Emergence, have built in safe-guards, such as double-encrypting the record-ings and storing them off-line where they are no longer accessible to the user. The evidence is only available to appropriate legal, health, and school authorities and is geo-coded for where the user was when the evidence was created.
The app is available at the iTunes store for free, and is currently in pilot-testing.
HeartMob is a website and mobile app plat-form that allows users to document and report their experiences of online harassment, includ-ing threats, hate messages, and defamation. Created by the NY-based street harassment awareness organization Hollaback, the intent with this platform was to give back power to
the person experiencing online victimization. A user can choose to privately document online incidents or make them public. When inci-dents are made public, other users (called by-standers) can provide supportive comments or even take a requested action.
The Circle of 6 app is the winner of Vice Presi-dent Joe Biden’s 2011 White House challenge calling for citizens to build the best “app against abuse.” Originally designed for college students, Circle of 6 allows users to add 6 close and trusted people to their circle, who they can text, call, or alert if the user finds themselves in a potentially dangerous situation. Users can have a text message sent to someone in their circle that reads “Call and pretend you need me; I need an interruption” or “Come and pick me up” with a geographical pin of their location attached. Circle of 6 is used in 36 countries around the world.
Callisto is a website and app currently being tested at two colleges for its effectiveness at allowing users to report their experiences of sexual assault. Students can fill out a time-stamped incident of the event, and allow them to choose a next step, including having the rec-ord sent to the college’s Title IX officer. The record can also keep track of the accused per-petrator and log whether that person “matches” in any other user’s incident report. The platform is created by Sexual Health Inno-vations and was designed using interviews with sexual assault survivors.
