Ratings and Reviews
Latest version is a problem for navigating
This latest release now causes the phone to spam the home button rather than the sleep button. I can see why they did it, and there are some good reasons to do that, however it causes a big problem for trying to navigate. Previously, when this app would force your phone to sleep, you could still have Apple Maps running on the lock screen whenever you would pick up or wiggle your phone. Now, because it is spamming the home button instead, every time you pick your phone up it thinks you’re trying to unlock it and pulls up the passcode screen over the top of the map. That results in a lot of new distraction having to cancel out of the passcode screen just to see the map for about two seconds.
My mom wanted me to have this app to protect me while driving, but sometimes the app works and sometimes it doesn’t. The intentions of the device and app are good, but it gets very annoying when I’m trying to use maps and it insists on sending me a notification every second. Also, the thing where it won’t let you turn on airplane mode is so frustrating! I had to delete the app entirely on a plane once just so I could set my phone to airplane mode! I think it is a safe and smart thing to have, but it needs some updates.
Too many problems with this app
I have this app due to a court ordered violation. The app has way too many glitches. Turns my phone screen on and off while I’m driving constantly. Tells me I’m using my phone while driving when clearly I never do. Sometimes it doesn’t log my trips at all so an entire day of data wasted. I’ve emailed customer support several times and they just tell me not to worry about it because the court isn’t looking at the data. That’s not the case
