App of the Month

It's an app - kind of. 

Shortcuts is an Apple download. Maybe there is something for Android, maybe not. 

From my understanding it helps you create shortcuts to do stuff on your phone, because apparently scrolling for your other apps and touching them is too time consuming? 

But that's not what this is about. You need this app for another reason. 

There can be a shortcut on your phone, so you can say, "Siri, I'm getting pulled over". 

Siri will automatically record the police /  encounter. 

Now, being a white male, I totally get my privilege. Other are not so lucky. And assuming there isn't someone else around to record something, be your own advocate. 

Oh - yes, you designate a contact and Siri will automatically send the recording to said contact. 

Just an FYI - here is some more info on setting that up. These days, it's important to cover your yourself.
