Let's be honest here, most of the apps we download onto our phones have to do with photo editing, music, maps, and playing tiny games against people in far-off places. And while that's great, there are some apps out there that 100 percent need to be on our phones in case of an emergency. Hopefully, we'll never have to use these apps, but it's better to be safe than sorry.
Here are 5 apps that can literally save your life. Don't wait another minute to download them.

"Puts everything you need to know to prepare for a tornado -- and all that comes with it -- in the palm of your hand."
The Red Cross Tornado Warning app helps you know what to do when a tornado hits, even if cell towers and televisions are down. A siren will sound on your phone (even if the app is closed) if the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issues a warning.
(There is also a Hurricane Warning app, as well.)
