Here’s Johnny! Not when you have the SnapMail app

One of the most famous movie stills in history is the one where Jack Nicholson sticks his face through the broken door in the 1980 horror movie The Shining and shouts “Here’s Johnny”.

It’s an extremely frightening scene to watch, not to mention what it would be like to experience in real life.

Back in those days unless you had a fixed line phone handy your ability to call for help was limited to the strength of your vocal chords, and given where the house was located even those wouldn’t do you much good.

Today, if you find yourself in a similar situation the chances are you will have your mobile phone nearby.  The first call should obviously be the cops, but if ‘Johnny’ knows that it could take the police 30 minutes to arrive, that may not be much of a deterrent.

But what if Johnny was SnapMailed and realised that committing the perfect murder was actually not going to be all that perfect because his photograph would be sitting in your Inbox, as well as in your SnapMail account, long after Johnny headed for the forest.  Of course he could steal your phone, and of course he could try to delete the e-mail, but not even Johnny could access your SnapMail account, and even if he did, the photos can’t be deleted for 30 days.

Not even Johnny is that mad!

That’s actually a great use for SnapMail. I’d imagine there are lots of people living alone in isolated areas who hear all sorts of bumps in the night. If they had their mobile phones at the ready for when an intruder came in it could prevent the crime and it would be a brilliant piece of evidence in trying to solve it and secure a conviction.
