Approach by WhenHub, allows geostreaming (i.e. real-time location sharing) for yourself and other invited participants as you approach a meeting, event or final destination. With Approach you can share and see location information in real-time, for a fixed period of time, and for a select group of people on any smartphone.
The map view allows you to see each participant's profile image and location in real-time. Everyone stays informed of arrival times without having to use unsafe text messages while driving. Approach can be used in many scenarios such as meeting people at a restaurant, driving home from work or vacation, tracking family members on a long journey, and monitoring kids on a field trip.
Participants who join the Approach have privacy settings to control their geostreaming or sharing contact details with the group. Users can also make phone calls directly thru the app to others involved in an active Approach. Notifications are sent as participants join, leave or are near the destination.
This version is a complete makeover of the Approach user interface based on user feedback. We have made the app easier to use, while also improving the functionality in a number of areas.
Here is a complete list of Approach features:
- View participants geostreaming on a map in real-time regardless of smartphone platform
- Share invitation links easily using the messaging app of your choice
- Invitees who don't have the app can choose to monitor the person who invited them using just their web browser on mobile or desktop
- Approaches can be auto-started based on calendar events (configurable in Settings)
- Repeat Approaches can be managed using the Favorites manager
- Configurable notifications make it easy to know where everyone is and exactly when they will arrive
- Unlike general map applications, Approach is specialized for geostreaming and thus has a simple, easy-to-use experience
- Approach can be white-labeled for your Business. More information at https://approach.whenhub.com
