Excellent app to get your friends location on demand The app works good, you can get your friends location on demand so no wasted battery nor data. Still a bit buggy.
This is the only app I've found that can share locations on demand without having to continually monitor and report your location (and consequently drain your battery). It currently has a few rough edges, but the developers are actively working on it and are incredibly responsive.
Kept crashing so I uninstalled and reinstalled it but no way to log in as a registered user, and also won't let me register again. Disappointing as was a good app when it worked but now I can't seem to use it
Crashes No longer works at all for myself or any of my family. Crashes as soon as we try to find someone.
Good idea but why Facebook only?? I personally don't have FB account and don't want to get one. Why not letting people use their Google account? Don't think it would be such a security concern as everyone use G account with Android here. Also SMS notification would be good to have as an option. For those people who use battery saving apps because they basically keep 3G data connection disabled and reenable it periodically so location update request could be delayed. SMS, on the other hand, delivers at the first possible chance.
Functions internationally I like using pyngme to check whether my housemate is at home and to see how close my buddy is to arriving when we meet weekly to shoot hoops. Also cool that I can pyng friends in Malaysia and Indonesia just for fun.
Improvements in 2.94
New Feature: create a home screen shortcut to pyng a person!
To try it: instead of tapping to pyng someone, long press that button and you'll see a dialog with options. Select "Add Shortcut". The shortcut created uses the image from your phone Contacts.
Improvements in 2.93
- added menu option to toggle whether to show driving directions (a user request)
