For Travel

ICE Standard:

ICE, standing for incase of emergency, is an essential travel app. It stores important information about you such as allergies, medical conditions and medication, as well as contact details for the first port of call. Once downloaded, set the app as an accessible option via your lock screen for accessibility should the situation demand.
