Update 2016: The app is now pulled from the AppStore.
Update: International 911 Caller is now available from the App Store.
Then I got back on my horse and pushed through with my earlier abandoned app project, the International 911Caller. Even spending 4 hours punching the numbers from this wikipedia article into the app.
Hopefully it will be approved by Apple some time this week, please cross your fingers for me 😀
The International 911Caller locates you and lets you know the emergency numbers for the country you are in. If the app cannot find your location for some reason* you can look up the numbers in the directory.
*It will need data traffic or WIFI to look up the country after finding the GPS position
If you ever find yourself without the International 911Caller call 112, prefreably from a mobile GSM phone. In more cases than not it will put you through to the national emergency service.
