App to help disaster survivors could be developed with Government funding

A smartphone app that will help victims of natural disasters could be developed by the Government.

According to Sky News, an app, which would help track survivors of natural disasters and post tweets with medical advice, is one of a number of projects that could be developed through £48.5m of government funding over the next three years.

It is also claimed that people could be trained in responding to disasters through the use of video game technology as Andrew Mitchell, international development secretary calls for countries to focus on investment into new technology.
