Verizon Extends HopeLine's Reach Via Android App
Verizon Wireless today announced a new dedicated application for its HopeLine service. The app, which works on Android smartphones and tablets, gives victims of domestic abuse another avenue through which they can reach out for help or simply gather information. The app lets Verizon subscribers connect directly to the National Domestic Violence Hotline for interventions if necessary. The HopeLine also makes it easier to donate unused phones or monetary contributions to the HopeLine program. The application is free to download, but requires that customers are subscribed to a data plan.
