Not good for me Its too slow to locate compared to free app life 360. I dont know if someone is working to constantly improve but it has not filled the gap. I purchased the service because life 360 wasn't dependable but through updates and possibly a little magic life 360 has become a much better app. Will probably discontinue this service soon. i should have already done so but i figured it has to work better. Its from the phone company that i use. But alas, it does not.
Buggy Still broke this is last two updates now. This app continues to go down hill. I had to completely uninstall after this last update. It keeps auto locating the last phone even when auto locate everyone is turned off. Its getting caught in loops and locating people over and over. Even before this update location success rate was poor regardless of coverage. If your going to have a pay service it must work better than this
Not worth it anymore. This had been much better several years ago. Now it struggles to find my families phones. Often times it falls. The accuracy is too large of a circle. Sad that google maps and lookout can pinpoint phones, but this cannot. NOT WORTH THE FEE
Location Report Inaccurate You could be sitting at home & it will report that you are 1986 ft. away from the desert. It doesn't always send notifications at the time requested. It sends them when it's ready, even when phone is fully charged. It has NEVER given the EXACT address of where the phone is located, just the general area. If you think that you could actually find your kid in a shopping mall with this service after they've been snatched up by an unknown, it's not going to happen. If you're ok with vague, then this will do.
Peace of mind In today's world that we live in, it's comforting to be able keep track of your loved ones. Unfortunately, Sprint's app has some "issues". Too often, it's not the most accurate. And, recently, on my S6, it self exits prior to locating. However, overall, it gives me the Peace of mind needed to keep my family safe.
Doesnt work without internet! My fiance drives a semi tractor/trailer, when he doesnt have internet it wont locate him out on the road. And even though I am at home it says I am up the road at a different address, what the hell? I turned off notifications sent to me by text and it still sends me text messages. Very frustrating!!
