I asked a group of fellow BBOS bloggers what some of their favorite applications were and I.C.E. kept coming up. If you aren't sure of what I.C.E. stands for, allow me to introduce you to the application used In Case of an Emergency.

The application allows you to input the following information:

  • Your name
  • Who to contact
  • Important telephone numbers
  • Blood type
  • Known allergies
  • Your physician's name and telephone number
  • Medications you take
  • Existing medical conditions
  • And even your health insurance

In the case you or someone you know cannot communicate the above information, the I.C.E. app allows medical and emergency professionals to get a hold of the information and people they need to best serve you.

The only problem we've run into when using this application is it might be a tad bit hard for professionals to locate your I.C.E. information if you have a password on your phone, or worse, a PatternLock. Or in my case, both.

On a lighter note, check out another version of BlackBerry ICE:

If you've downloaded this app, we welcome your thoughts and opinions on it!
