I love the peace of mind this app gives me when my teenage son is out at work or visiting friends. I like to think that I am flexible on curfew, so if he's too late, I can make sure he is on his way home. He knows that I have this app and is fine with it...so far. 😊 I've had this app for a couple of years now and it hasn't failed or glitched in any way. I highly recommend this app!!!
Haven't used it for a while and saw there were a few updates since I used it last. I figured surely Sprint would have fixed it ny now, but still has exact same issues. 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
It only works part of the time, if it has trouble locating the other phone, it picks the same area to place it, and then it stays there even when the phone is out in the open and gps is working, it still cannot locate it. Not happy.
It is usually pretty accurate! We've used it as a family for over 10 years now! It's helped find my son when he needed picked up and his phone died. We have Auto safety checks scheduled and I used his last location to find him!
This app not only finds family when you need to, but also is a huge benefit when a phone is misplaced. Locate phone and then set off alarm if unable to find it.
Have any of the people who wrote this app actually used it? STILL trying to sign up and . . . INSECURE PASSWORD REQUIREMENTS? In this day and age? REALLY? I'm just . . . Mind boggled! Also, I have FIVE phones on my account. The app says I only have one? And that number doesn't use an area code! WTF?!?!? Argh! Uninstalled!
