ChewyGPS discretely allows the user to check-in with his/her contacts every selected time period. ChewyGPS runs in the background to tracks device location, motion, and position updates. When it's time to check-in, ChewyGPS posts a notification. Selecting that notification opens the app and then sends an email to entered contacts with little effort on the users part. Send your location via email while you are running a marathon, walking to school, hiking, traveling, or performing errands just by tapping on a notification! No more having to bother updating people with where you're at and what you're doing. ChewyGPS will handle that.
1) Choose your time interval for sending/posting your location: 15, 30, 60 minutes or use Significant Location Change.
2) Enter your name. Your name will be used in the email messages sent to your contacts.
3) Enter up to four contacts.
4) Enter your message that you want added in your email such as "Walking home from school." or "Traveling to San Francisco!".
5) Tap the "Start" button!

When all your friends have dumb phones...
I love the find my friends iPhone app, but all my friends have dumb phones. With ChewyGPS, my dumb phone friends can get my location through email and Facebook. This is great!
This app comes in handy to keep track of traveling friends, family, children, etc!
