I love this idea. Gonna pitch this idea to my parents. I have a request though, Google, please add widget support for automatically and instantly with one button press, sharing of your location with a set person that is chosen the first time you press it to get it ready for use. Also it would be great to have a "Oh crap" kind of version where you can add a widget that automatically will do an Alert to all your trusted contacts.
Buggy with recent updates. The location does not get updated frequently. Infact most of the times the location updates are after 30/40 minutes. It will be better if you gave us a app option that gives us control on how frequent we want o update the location e.g every 1 minute, every 5 minutes, every hour OR as requested (real time)
Great idea, but nothing happens when I click "continue" on the "this app needs location" part of setup, so unusable. Nexus 6P with freshly wiped latest 7.1.1
Should have a subset of contacts you can share without having a request. Some you get a request and auto accept after x mins, some you auto reject after x mins.
Location accuracy is a joke. Redundant app.
I'd like to see features like: real-time tracking without request (for kids), and auto messages to be sent when battery is lower then 10%.
