Occupy Wall Street protesters now have a free app to alert others if they're about to be arrested.   

The creator of the "I'm Getting Arrested'' app is Jason Van Anden, a Brooklyn software developer, reports the Daily News.

It's available at Android Market. Van Anden is working to make it available on iPhone.     

Here's how it works: Users write a text message in advance and program a list of recipients. As they're about to be arrested, users can hit one button and alert everyone on their list.     

As of Monday morning, 9,000 had installed it. Van Anden says he doesn't know if anyone used it because he installed privacy controls.
