Ratings and Reviews
Like idea-killer on my battery
Like the idea of what this is trying to achieve. After careful following the setup settings used this for a few days and found that I could not keep my older iPhone 5 running iOS 10.3.3 charged. Unfortunately it seems that iOS 11 is not compatible with my older phone. Upon reviewing battery usage found that LifeSaver was the highest app user of battery. Ended up changing to only allow to use location while app is in use, but forget to open the app. Have been using EverDrive longer and although it is for a different purpose it too "uses location all the time" but is much less demanding on battery life. Still hoping for additional improvements to LifeSaver.
Developer Response ,
Northside thank you for the feedback. Location services needs to be 'Always' for LifeSaver to work properly and automatically. Our current 3.0.2 versions consumption on a healthy iPhone should be between .75% and 1% of battery while rest. During driving it'll consume in between this and most popular navigation apps. Also the improvements you are requesting are just around the corner we think we can greatly improve battery in iOS 11 so look for our 4.x version for further improvements!
Not worth the hype
I am an insurance agent and one of my carriers has a deal with Lifesaver, so I figured I would try it. I downloaded on my phone to do a trial before I recommend to anybody. There are a few flaws in my opinion. First, it kept pushing alerts to my Garmin watch as I was driving and car was on the console, which ironically was terribly distracting. I may have downloaded it or set it up wrong, so that could be user error, but that is still an issue. Also, there is no tracking available, which was one thing I was hoping for...seems it would be easy to add some gps function for fleet management.
I really love the concept, but I don’t feel like this product achieves execution. I deleted from my phone. Currently looking at other vendors.
Developer Response ,
Kindly touch base with us at email@example.com. LifeSaver for fleets does provide fleet tracking, monitoring and scoring so I think something is amiss here. For Apple watch you can disable the LS notification as shown here https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204791. Thank you.
Not worth the time
It’s not user friendly, AT ALL. It doesn’t show or explain how to put settings on drivers. And most importantly it didn’t even work. It did nothing but show two location points. Then when I log in it shows drivers and how I want it set up but 20 minutes later it shows A user then numbers and doesn’t show connected drivers anymore. No alerts and no notifications once others are driver.
