Amber Central

Amber Central

  • Amber Central for the Windows Phone 7 is an award winning app of the Microsoft US Public Sector: State/Local Govt WP7 Apps contest. It is designed to help in the search for, and safe recovery of missing children. Current features include: - A real-time feed of active AMBER Alerts from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) including some information about the victim, when and where they were reported missing, and the type of alert. - A listing of missing children from NCMEC organized by the states from where they are missing. - A listing of missing children from NCMEC reported missing in proximity to your current location. - The ability to share the active AMBER Alerts via Twitter, facebook, Email, and SMS messages. If you have information about a case or have seen one of the missing children, with the click of a button, you can automatically call NCMEC’s toll-free 24-hour hotline 1-800-THE-LOST (800-843-5678), or contact the local authority in charge of the missing child's case. Although this application includes a listing of all active AMBER Alerts, it does not actively notify the user when a new AMBER Alert is issued. For active notification, NCMEC encourages all wireless subscribers to register to receive Wireless AMBER Alerts™. Through that initiative, they can sign up at to receive text message notices about AMBER Alerts that have been issued in their area. Please consider downloading the Amber Central Application and signing up for Wireless AMBER Alerts. You might be able to help an abducted or missing child come home safely. For more information about this application and other ways that you can get involved, please visit NCMEC’s website at

I'm glad this app exist so I can help in find missing kids. However, there are a number of places it could be improved. For starters, the find near me feature should list missing kids by their proximity when they went missing to me. Secondly, this app should also have a background task so I'm notified immediately via a toast when someone near me goes missing. Last, I'd like to be able to sort missing children by the date they went missing.

Good and useful app but would be better if it had a live tile function with alerts based on your location.

I would also like live tile alerts for my state.

This app is ok, but could be smarter. It should have a live tile with push notification on amber alerts in your area.

I noticed the Wyoming problem was fixed in the recent update. Currently a PERFECT app. Quick speed, beautiful design, helpful information.. All you'd need in an amber alert app. If you truly care about missing kids, download this app NOW!

It would be great to have live tile for emergency alerts. Otherwise good app.

Glad to finally see Indiana make its way to the list of states. BUT, something I noticed.. At the very bottom of the list of states, it isn't possible to click on Wyoming. I guess people in Wyoming could choose by location, but still.. Good job with the recent update, either way!

Update - creator contacted me which was nice and unexpected. I was told that my issues of not having Indiana were being worked on as well as live tile. Giving it 5 stars for that with assumption that updates will be coming.

Why doesn't this app have Indiana? We just were issued an amber alert and thought I should install an amber alert app only to find Indiana missing. The app spreads an important message otherwise but would be cool if the tile was live and alerted you if there was alert, maybe it could change colors or flash the words active alert or something because what's the point of the app if it doesn't notify you of an alert, when there are ways already available to be notified on your cell. 3 stars for just being what it is 5 when it gets Indiana and live tile.

Really nice app. Smooth, very responsive, and easy to use. And I like the idea behind it. :-D

A little buggy, but it runs good. Also, it doesn't have my state (Indiana) entirely.

Can't startup on my HD7, crashes while refreshing the history I believe. Rebooted, no change.
