Location Chat

Please NOTE: this is NOT a dating app!

Another chat? Yes. No. Wait! Did you ever hang with friends in downtown and wanted to split? But hesitated - how will you find them again? Sure, you can agree to meet in an hour in certain spot. But what if you are late? Or what if they see some fun place and want you to come there? This app can help! You see yours and your friends’ locations on the map in real time. And you can text them – the map and chat share the same screen.

Do you like hiking in parks and want to share your location with relatives at home? Are you an avid fisherman and want your buddy to get to this real good spot you just found? Do you have guests coming to your cottage but don’t want to call them to check how far they are? With Location Chat you save time and have piece of mind that you are connected!

Location is updated with the frequency controlled by the app settings (10 seconds to 5 minutes). You have full control of whether you're sending your location updates. Disable it at any time or let the timer to turn it off. Your location is shared within the chat. Contacts in other chats will not see it, unless you choose to enable it there.

Share a place of interest on the map: simply add a marker with the icon of what it is, e.g. "Picnic Site" or "Cabin", and your friends will see it too. And of course all normal functions of a messaging app are included: group and individual chats with text and picture sharing, forwarding and replies.

You can use Location Chat on smart phone or tablet with a data plan. Just register an account and you are ready to go. No personal information (phone number, email, etc.) required.

Features include:

- Simple, familiar interface with chat and user lists.
- Chat screen with integrated map. Upon turning on location sharing, other chat members will see your location on the map.

- Marks that can be published on chat map and shared with chat members.
- Take and post photos, share with other chats or messaging apps.
- Chat messages can be encrypted with password.
