Bloodline App aims to find Blood donors for Patients

An app Bloodline has been developed by a team from the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras , which aims to find blood donors for patients when they need it.

Android app bloodlines encourages people to sign up with their location, blood type and phone number, and choose how often they want to be reminded to donate. The app then connects with Facebook and Google to determine "the people closest to you, both physically and socially". The idea is that your friends are more likely to donate money to you if you need it, and vice versa.
As we know, India has a blood deficit of between 30 and 35 percent each year, which means that many patients die because they can't get a transfusion. 

If smart phones and internet can help us share photographs and videos instantly with our friends, why not use that connectivity for saving lives? Can we create a social group of people who can help each other during an emergency?

When a person needs blood, a doctor or a patient can enter the blood type they need, their location and the number of units they need up to a maximum of 10. This sends out a callout to people who have signed up in that area, who are then encouraged to donate via SMS. Meanwhile you can also see the live requests for your type of blood.

It's a great idea, but it seems as though it depends enormously on scale.
You can download the app from Google Play and appears to be currently available to users worldwide.
