Ratings and Reviews
From flawless 5 stars, to buggy 1 stars
To developers: please help. This bug is being ignored...
An app I love is becoming useless...
Tried to uninstall then reinstall, same bugs appear:
The app no longer opens from text messages, only the webpage.
The hard press menu is different than the online support: cannot select preference of opening.
Trying to open the app from the webpage leads 3/5 to the iOS App Store and 2/5 to the app.
Dropped to one star. Utterly useless with all the bugs. So sad...
It would be nice if the recipient could see their own location as well as the person who sent it to them so they could converge and meet

Hi Rodz!lla. Thanks for the review. "Meet up" is a feature we have on our roadmap. We like that idea as well!
Been using the app for about 8 years and it works great. I had an issue recently: whenever I went to settings the app would crash but they fixed it in the latest update. I really like this app. Thanks.
