TheseBoots combines the benefits of tracking your own locations as well as the locations of others. You will be able to look up your location history easily. And you will be alerted when entering or leaving a designated area. TheseBoots enables you to see the real-time locations of your friends and your family. You can define areas for receiving notifications when a tracked person enters or leaves an area. TheseBoots helps to set your mind at ease viewing that your children are at school, your spouse is in their office, or your parents are at home or on their way home.
TheseBoots is a free app without advertisements!
TheseBoots does not use unsolicited push messages.
You can login on another device when you have lost your phone or when it has been stolen.
The TheseBoots Live screen focuses on your own locations. Its features are:
✓ Start/Stop recording your location.
✓ Locations inside the designated area of the current window will not be stored (to save space).
✓ A notification is raised when you enter or leave a designated area.
✓ A tap of a position marks the closest location and shows its corresponding date and time.
✓ An area marker is (partly) green when entering the area, and (partly) red when leaving the area.
✓ A tap of an area marker shows the area name; a second tap displays a dialog asking for deleting the area.
✓ Define a 'Spot' by a long tap.

The TheseBoots History screen focuses on locations in the past.
✓ Show a subset of locations available in the local storage of your device.
✓ Present four possible Storage Actions about locations:
- The Purge action removes locations from local storage on your device. Note that removed locations of yourself can be restored, unlike removed locations of tracked persons.
- The Fetch action retrieves your locations from the server, and adds them to local storage on your device. In this way, your locations are restored.
- The Delete action deletes your locations permanently from the server. Note that this action cannot be undone!
- The Export action stores locations to a file.
- For each of the above 4 actions a dialog asks for the time interval, and the type of coordinates (GPS and/or network).

Two obvious permissions are needed in order for TheseBoots to work properly. After app installation you will be asked to grant 2 permissions :
1. The permission for retrieving your location is needed. That is what this app is all about.
2. Permission for access storage is needed for storing profile images of you and tracked persons, and for exporting locations.
