■Enter Preference Panel by tap on the "i" button at the lower right corner of the screen.
■Set all three Dial Numbers to your local emergency service numbers.
■Setup your twitter account.
■Play with it a bit to get familiar.

-Notice that you can also use it to send Twitter message. You can always change the customizable message in the preference panel at any time. After you click "Done" button and go back to the main panel, SOS will deliver this message to twitter.

-Place the App icon on the first page of your iPhone screen, at somewhere you can easily remember (like on the dock), in this way you can launch SOS as quickly as possible.

-Have a test run of the alarm function, press the volume button on iPhone to reach the level that you think will work best. You only need to do this once, your iPhone will remember this setting.
