Bugle lets you register an activity with details pertaining to the nature of your visit, and the time of your return. If you do not check in at the time of your self-appointed deadline, anyone you have tagged in your circle gets a text or an email alarming them that you have not returned yet. This app is available for free.

Rescue Kit is a simplified, (and less reliable) version of a SPOT satellite beacon. It sends your GPS coordinates to rescuers and automatically prompts the emergency phone numbers used by many different countries. It also contains a flashlight feature that signals SOS in Morse code. This app is available for $2.
