If something like device manager were adapted for family and friends with simpler permissions and more frequent updates would be better. This is too over the top and irritating to use. I was looking forward to something like this from Google but instead it is a vibrating ringing mess with very infrequent updates. Hope something better comes out soon. For now it is not very useable for me
DOES NOT WORK! I have set up my trusted contacts half a dozen times. None of them have received a single email from the app. Everytime I open the app it asks me to set up trusted contacts. That is the only part of the app I have ever been able to view.
How about some settings and options. Starting with, if I've made someone a trusted contact, let me choose if I want my phone to vibrate for 5 minutes, annoying the crap out of everyone and wasting battery. Let me choose the ringtone. Also, once you get this working well and we all get used to it, make sure you get rid of it like everything else.
Great idea, horrible exacution. I constantly have a notification hovering in my status bar and over the app saying to turn location back on. Yet all my location settings are turned on, and no matter what I tried I couldn't get the app to recognize that..ergo making it useless for me. I like the idea and would really like to utilize this app, but the layout and color scheme is also something to be desired. long story short this app needs a lot of work until I give it a try again.(for the 3rd time)
If only it was available in Iceland. Google Play also desperately needs a way to tell people why an app isn't available on some counties.
Awful. I have dad's account on my phone and when I ping him it pings my phone instead of his. What a freaking joke. Bring back Latitude.
Dec 2016 - add your trusted contacts, share your location and request the location of others.
