Pocket Ping is an application that allows you to record your personal location diary and display the results (we call them TreadCrumbs) real time in the app or on the web. You can also easily share your TreadCrumbs with your friends ... and the best is, it is totally free, anonymous and requires no registration. And to make it even more fun, you can see one friend's TreadCrumbs in the app alongside your own!

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews

Staying in touch with my family


This app is fun to use and practical at the same time. My brother and I use it regularly to feel 'not so removed' from each other. There is just something about being able to see someone that you care about moving around, doing their day to day activities, etc. that makes you feel connected. PLUS he lives in New Zealand which is earthquake heavy, so if something happens I can know whether he's been near a quake, and if his family is safe!

Amazing location-based app!

I use this app to check in with my family when I'm on the road for work. I was recently driving through Missouri and luckily just missed the family followed my TreadCrumbs and because of this, they were reassured that I was out of harms way. I like how this is a user-friendly, private location-focused app that gives my family and I a feeling of security.

Adds a layer of security and safety for loved ones - and super convenient!


My sister and I just started using Pocket Ping to stay in touch while she is traveling all over the globe for work. This app really makes it easier to confirm she has arrived safely at her destination - plus, I know when she's back in town so I can call her up and meet for coffee. Makes life so much easier!!
