Great app!


I love this app. Since it moved developers in the App Store it seems to have no bugs.

Update isn't terrible anymore!


The developers listened to their customers and changed the notification system back to how it was originally. The info pops up on your home screen so you don't have to open the app. I find the location services and speeding alert very accurate but I am sure to keep the app open on my phone and my children's phones. My kids actually don't mind having the app because they don't have to remember to text me every time they get to their destination. It really eases the worry of having a new driver.

This app used to be great but the recent update is absolutely terrible. Before the update the notification that popped up told you what you need to know i.e. "Child has left Starbucks" and it was great. However, now you have to open the app to see the info because all the notification says is that there is a notification! This is SO cumbersome if you're driving, in a meeting or otherwise occupied. I also complained (like the other reviewer) and was told I have to do is open the app. Really? I get that. I have the PAID version of the app so I shouldn't be forced to open it to see ads! I doubt I am the only one complaining but they don't seem to care what the user wants.

The updates have steadily eroded the usefulness of this app


The developers have had some ups and downs with MamaBear (we've been using it for over 2 years). It has been somewhat useful for the last couple of years with my teen. It's been trending downward towards the less useful for the last several updates. Alerts no longer timely, areas no longer accurate or consistent, etc. The latest update was the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back. We will be deleting MamaBear, as the notifications no longer tell me at first glance where my teen is. The generic " ____________ has triggered a safe place event. Open MamaBear app for details ", is just spam. It's an attempt to get me to upgrade to the pro version, and it's downward spiral of development has assured that will not happen, regardless of the ads I must deal with when I do open the app. It's an attempt to bolster the ad generated revenue. It fails. It fails so badly, that I'm deleting the app from all my families devices. There is a fine line here that was crosses with the last update. I need information on my child's location. Until the last update, I got that information from the notification. If I have to open an app to get that information, it might as well be a more accurate app.
