One of the great joys of having a smartphone is being able to load it up with apps that suit your needs or personality.

Some apps may provide useful information, others provide some fun or even introduce a bit of whimsy into your life. But a new app developed by UWM students could actually help save lives.

On this edition of UWM Today, host Tom Luljak talks with Dustin Hahn; project manager for the UWM App Brewery, and Carmen Pitre; executive director of Sojourner Family Peace Center.

The Sojourner Family Peace Center app has information about the agency's programs and services, contacts in Milwaukee County and other tools for victims of domestic violence.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
