Saving Your Life: There's an app for that...

Usually when people say that their iPhone has saved their life, they're being metaphorical (or at least hyperbolic). But for this guy, it's literally true: after being trapped under rubble in the Haitian earthquake, Dan Woolley used a first-aid app to tend to his injuries. The app also warned him to not fall asleep after possible head trauma, so he used the clock app to set an alarm to go off every 20 minutes. 65 hours later, he was rescued. Wow.
