The free "winter survival app" is available for iPhone and Android smartphones.
It was designed by two North Dakota software engineers, to help people trapped in winter weather.
The app can pinpoint a driver's location, alert friends or family, and monitor your gas supply.
There's also potentially life-saving advice, like stay in your vehicle and make sure the tailpipe isn't blocked by snow--to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.
