Over There 2
By BusyBytes GmbH
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
+++ Stunning offline location sharing which keeps your privacy! +++
Over There offers you a new way of sharing your location with every mobile phone in the world. You don’t even need an internet connection. It only requires a GPS signal and cellular coverage. This works completely offline, therefore the app won't send your location to any server.
But how does it work?
We use a smart algorithm that allows us to convert your location to a really small link like "www.ovt.re/UlMVQgtg_0wg".
This link can be sent as a text message to any mobile phone around the globe. The algorithms are designed to completely run offline and the link uses a space of only 23 characters. Thus, this leaves enough space to add some additional text, like holiday greetings for example.
Over There also provides a great web-service for the recipient on mobile devices. Every smartphone owner can use this link to easily look up your location using Google Maps.
Another advantage is that if you want to share your location via Facebook, WhatsApp etc., you don't have to allow them location permissions anymore - just use the In-App dialog. Over There 2 will not collect any kind of data.
Finally, all this comes alive on a visually stunning user interface. It provides you with detailed GPS information, including altitude and speed.
This is still not all! Here is an overview of all features we have built in:
+ Share your location with only 23 chars in your text message
+ Share your location via Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp or email
+ Automatic detection of the local time zone, and time (works offline)
+ Add a tiny link to your photos
+ Copy short links and GPS information to the clipboard and use it wherever you like
+ View the address of your current location
+ Add addresses to contacts of your address book
+ Live GPS information displayed in cockpit-style
+ Your speed in km/h, mph and knots visualized with a blurred interface
+ Your actual altitude in feet or meters
+ The strength of your GPS signal in percent
+ A mini offline map with on-screen GPS information
We plan to add more features in future versions, so stay tuned and have fun!

Confusing access to Google Maps APP.
Will rate 5 stars if you integrate better Google Maps app. I would prefer the links opening directly within the Google Maps App, instead of google maps in Safari. I want to be able to save the sent locations with my other map points quicker and easier. Thank you.
Was so excited about this app then I bought it..:-( it won't let me save any of my contacts to favorites or anywhere:-( it takes you into your contacts and allows you to locate the contact you want to add but then there's no way to add? Not even if the other user your trying to add has an iPhone! I've even tried to manually add the address etc! UURRRGGGHHHH Very weird! So I can't even use it with my iPhone 6+..:-(
Sends SMS alright & URL functions in Firefox
Functions very well in Firefox (latest update) on iPhone 6sPlus and iPhone 6 Plus. URL does NOT display on Safari (like lots of apps lately as Safari seems semi-abandoned by Apple now).
