I have used this app many times before and never had any issues, however. after the load is delivered I don't leave MacroPoint installed on my phone. There has been an update for the app since the last time I used it. I have an Android phone and this time it won't even begin to download. I also have an Android tablet and MacroPoint installed on it in record time. I noticed that I'm being tracked through it successfully whereas before MacroPoint had to be on the phone only to be trackable.

Hi Bryan, sorry for this inconvenience. 1- Launch Settings in your Android phone and head over to the Apps section and then switch to “All” tab. Scroll down to Google Play Store app and then tap on Clear Data and Clear Cache. Clearing cache will help you fix the download pending problem in Play Store. This is not really an issue with our app....

I had a heated argument with a broker because my location stopped updating after another load had been added to the app before completing the current one. He thought that I was in PA when I was in NY close to my destination. There was no option to manually update the location for the specific load even though it had not been completed yet and I think that should be changed and fixed. It's the first problem I've ever had with this app and I've been using it since around 2018.

the developer needs to figure out how to make this work without needing to manage phone calls, a location app has no business fooling with phone calls. they took the access to pictures away which was good. just one more step. still don't like being tracked, but due to circumstances not important to this review I had to get a 2nd phone/line. so I decided why not use that line for the brokers billshite.

We have a new release coming soon that no longer requires access to the permission to make and manage calls. We used that permission to verify the phone number since brokers assign loads to phone numbers. We never actually make calls. Please make sure to download the latest version of the app and contact us with any questions

What's new

In this version we squashed some bugs and made some infrastructure changes to make the app more reliable than ever. Please send us your feedback and ideas!
