Great app, needs minor tweaks This app works great on my Moto X (2013). Almost to good though. The location setting needs to be a little less exact. It keeps sending messages that I left home when I move around the house or backyard. Lock screen widget would be a great addition too. Keep up the good work!
I kept this all from the base Moto apps as it seemed a great idea, but for me it failed at its priority - being reliable. When I have to set a place as home (couldn't even set my exact address for some reason) and walk in front of it in an attempt to trigger the Places alert, and still it doesn't do anything - how much can I trust it in an emergency? I've enabled all Location permissions, it just doesn't seem to even try. I would consider keeping it just for the nice "Emergency" function, but I can't trust it will send any address at all - assuming it doesn't tumble over itself and crash. Please make *reliable* and accurate for it to be a consideration.
GPS accuracy is still off As stated above, it's well designed and easy enough to set up. However, location tracking is off as I'm getting notifications saying I've left home even though I've had the phone sitting in the same location. My Google Maps coords. are correct, so this app is doing something funky with interpreting the data. If it weren't for the nature of this app being primarily for emergency-use scenarios, I would rate it higher but it's difficult when my phone may be sending inaccurate location updates to my loved ones.
Excellant app that Can be tuned more... This is a cool app for - Meet Me, Follow me and Location Sharing. But not for emergency as like other people said. Especially the new update for renaming the places is great. Some feature suggestions: 1. Lock screen widget for emergency. 2. Mapping a particular place for particular set of persons. Ex: Office - For colleagues, Home - For my family 3. Need a little less accurate reporting. Ex: Even if I roam inside my home, Its reporting that I left home and again reports that I came to Home. Please note that office, Shopping centre are vast area. So It would be better if accuracy is reduced. 4. For Dual SIM mobiles, It will be better if you give an option to choose the SIM by which msgs can be sent. By default msgs are sent by SIM for which Data is enabled.
Wrong, wrong, wrong It insists on using cell site locating which is wrong. Better if could use GPS only for locations. Bad locations off by miles is worst than having no emergency alert. Off by miles on my lollipop by pretty close on dad's kitkat. Could location problem be version related?
Battery Drain I used the location alerts for a week to send text messages on arrival/departure. The battery was drained to 50% before lunch. This is a great idea, but if the design can't operate efficiently, it's just not useful. Also, the app would sometimes skip sending a message on leaving or arriving at a location. It seems like the location capabilities need a bit of work yet.
- Meet Me - Meeting Location can be changed to give more flexibility
- Create custom places - Name new places instead of just "other"
- SMS format - Short URL format when available. For place alerts no URL is sent out
- UI updates and bug fixes
