Winner of the 2018 Congressional App Challenge, CalcuSaver was created and designed to be used as an incognito way to send for help for whenever the user is in an uncomfortable situation.

By typing in their name, calculator code, and their emergency contact’s phone number, their account is ready. The app is a fully-functional calculator, but once the user‘s calculator’s output equals the user’s calculator code, a text message is sent to the emergency contact with the user’s name and a message saying that the user in an uncomfortable situation.
