Very cool app concept with a lot of versatility. It's obvious a lot of work went into this. So many features packed into this app!

I love the ability to use this to keep up with friends and to keep track of my kids-particularly if they get lost or need help. I'm just beginning to scratch the surface of what this app can do. The new panic alert widget is nice, making it easy to send the alert without having to fidget to open the app.

When it comes to working to make your phone more than just a phone and utilize the tech to its fullest, MoonBeam does it again!!!

Update after 2 years

Tyson Presley

I've been using Chirp GPS tracking for over two years, update after update and the tracking just keeps getting better. I use it with my family and kids - nothing works better. Don't listen to the I losers who say it isn't free. There is a completely free trial as with any Apple subscription. After the trial period you will be billed but just cancel if it's not for you. In my opinion it's the best money we spend, because knowing where your kids are and that they are safe is worth its weight in gold!!!

Not so good


The ONLY WAY the app allows you to track anyone is if you buy the use, either a monthly account or an annual one. It says 7 day free trail, what it actually means is download app, agree to terms and in 7 days we will bill you, THEN you get to use the app, only then, after we have your money. There is no free trail at all, so you never really know how well it works or if it actually does work unless you agree to pay the Chirp fees. Not only is that crap, it’s false advertising and that’s illegal. Don’t trust this company or app now that I know the reality of it. Pay up front, maybe we’ll let you do something. 🤬

Developer Response

Hello, thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately you are mistaken in your assessment of the app software and it's free trial, which might cause other users some concern so please allow me to address your issues.
First, yes the app is completely free and anyone can share their location just by tapping the Chirp icon on the map under “me”. GPS locating anyone is as easy as them sharing their location with you. There are no limits on sharing your location. It’s free, quick, and easy.
If you wish to use the advanced GPS tracking features, such as being able to pick up your device at any time and locate someone you have paired with - we do offer a completely free 7-Day trial inside the app. The regulations set forth by Apple require us to make it transparent all customers that they will be charged if the trial is not canceled, so make sure you do that within 7 days. But during the 7-day trial there are no limits on the software at all, and even you can even test out the real-time military grade location distancing offered.
The free trial lets you use the app including all of the advanced GPS tracking features so you can check it out for yourself, and realize what over a quarter of a million people who trust Chirp GPS every day already know - it’s the best GPS tracking software for mobile you will find.
Chirp GPS has been established and grown since 2010 and our entire team is dedicated to making our software the only really true, mobile GPS tracking software you can trust.
If you will please reach out directly to support at or from our website, I will personally see to it that your questions and concerns are handled in the same day, and offer you an extended trial of the advanced GPS tracking app.
Thanks again, and I really hope you reach out to us so we can help.
