Too inconsistent, too high maintenance


Every week or so I have to re-open the app on both my and my wife’s phones to keep it sending updates, even without having ever closed the app in the first place. And it can easily be disabled by either not using it for about a week or simply closing it. The update time takes several minutes (with a 5g or lte connection) from when I open the app, so if one didn’t have patience, it would appear broken. The point of this is to find a lost phone. If a thief puts it in airplane mode, turns it off, battery dies or thief erase+reinstalls iOS, game over with ‘live location’ apps. But this one lets me see location history up to that disappearance, thus helping me find it. Useless if it can’t keep itself going in background automatically, like the now defunct Fonehome or google timeline location history can. So I will go back to google, but will miss the auto-notifications from this app.



I really like this app. It automatically lets both of us know when the other leaves the house and arrives at work or the expected destination by push notification. If I’m concerned if someone is stuck in traffic or whatever, I can instantly see where they are on the map. The one thing I don’t like is you only get a freeze frame of your target and you have to keep refreshing to keep track. It would really be nice if they would update the app to keep track of the car in real time as it moves along on the highway.

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback Mark, happy to hear you like the app. We'll definitely look into auto refreshing the map, the main challenge we've is we don't want to consume too much battery.



I have been trying to get this app to work since this morning. I have removed it and reinstalled it 5 times and it's still doing the same thing. It constantly acts like it's loading something new and it's hard to change to a different tab or even see what is happening for the tab I'm on. This deserves no stars.

I went through every accessible setting in the app and every setting on my phone. I found out after talking with other family members that I'm not the only one who had this problem. And after everything we have seen we are choosing a different app for our family.
