Phone apps for runners and walkers may help keep you safe.

If you enjoy the outdoors but also want to keep yourself armed phone apps may give you piece of mind.

Apps like "Companion," "bSafe," and "React Mobile" offer personal security at a touch.

"It's going to give you a way to notify multiple people if you go off a route that you selected or if you don't show up at the location that you selected," Sgt. Travis Griffith, San Angelo Police Department, said.

The apps are free and available for download on IOS and Android.
