I *really* like this app! Before installing it and testing, I was concerned that it might not be able to notify my primary contact, who uses an iphone, but upon testing, I saw that the emergency contact person doesn't have to have an Android for the basic SMS and/or emergency voice calling features to work when sent from an Android phone -- probably just the "real time sessions" need both phones to have the app. If you're able to do an iphone app so my contact and me can to the real time sessions, I definitely upgrade to the paid version. ** One feature I would really like to see implemented is the possibility of having the app turn on the Location service if it isn't already on when a user needs to send an emergency message. That would allow the phone battery to last so much longer, rather than having to always have Location on. I don't know if that is something that an app can control without direct user manual input. Is that a possibility at all?? Anyway, great app, very flexible for the user, simple to set up options. Definitely five stars...

Very reliable. Unlike other apps, the accuracy of the location is very high. I ran the real time session for a couple of days, without any gaps in tracking. Only slight drawback is that my contacts seem to gets an update every 1 - 2 minutes, and there isn't a setting to make it more frequent.

Thank you for the endorsement. Using the GPS and internet are battery intensive actions. For this reason, Baxta's real time session collects the GPS location every 10 seconds, and sends an update every minute, to reduce battery consumption. The ability to change the frequency of collection and updates are on our product roadmap.

I've been using the free version for a while. What attracted me was that the power button and shake device to activate emergency feature was offered for free, while other apps required a paid subscription to use the same feature. With this new version, I have decided to buy the subscription to use the real time tracking as well. The price is about 50% cheaper than other apps with similar features. I got to say the developers are very generous. Thank you guys.
