Have a teenager going out tonight? Make sure they download this app

We've been there ourselves.

Whether you or your teenager lost a purse, phone, card or whatever else on a night out, it can be super scary.

They might not know where their friends are and you're not able to get a hold of them. Hopefully, it won't happen, but just in case, there's a new app, Flag, that could come in very handy.

Flag, designed by Galway entrepreneur Richie Cummins, is an app which lets users travel and pay with no phone, bank card or cash on them.

The app wants to 'give Dublin the gift of safety this Christmas,' and we think it'll do exactly that.

All you have to do is download Flag -The Taxi App from the app store, and sign up.

Then, add a picture and emergency four digit pin number.

You can use the app to flag down a taxi like usual, however, if you ever find yourself in a situation without funds or friends, you can pay via the app at a later time.

And, if you're run into an incident where your phone is dead or stolen, you can flag down a taxi and use your name and emergency pin number to pay for the taxi.

Pretty handy, huh?

After a very successful trial run in Galway, it has now arrived in Dublin. It could be a lifesaver for either you, your son or daughter tonight.
