We gave been using this app for a few months now. At first, it was great. But since the last update, it is glitchy and inaccurate. For example, my son left for work tonight. It showed him at a local fast food place, then down the interstate, then back home, then 5 minutes later 16 miles away. I know he didn't come back home because I am home. And from the spot on the interstate is more than 5 minutes away and there is no way he can get from home to two towns over in 5 minutes. Might have to find something more accurate.
Does not indicate when kids enter or leave the two Places I have established. Should work with my nexus 5x and mobile data. But great customer service so I upgraded my rating. UPDATE: gives indication when place is left but only after about one hour and I have update interval set for 1 minute... UPDATE: now I continually receive notifications that my kid has left and has entered the Place, when he has been in the Place for over 6 hours, yet the notifications keep coming regularly.
The free version of this app is pretty good, considering that it's free. What is annoying however, is the constant attempts to upsell. I don't mind trading ads for use on a free app, but I do not like the fact that they are increasingly lowering the functionality and aggressively promoting the pro version. It would also be helpful to allow the parents to push a request to the kids' phones to get a current location on demand, especially in emergency situations.
Doesn't really work. My two kids have a Galaxy S6 and a Moto Play Play and I get alerts at odd times that are false. I work from home and at least once a day I'll get an alert that one or more of my kids has just left or arrived from my location. Of course, I know they aren't here. I also get false alerts from them leaving and arriving at the place I designated as their school. They are setup on 5 minute updates, but their location is never that current. Generally its 30 or more minutes behind. GPS and everything is turned on. I was born at night, but not last night. The question is....how do you get your money back after you've already paid for this?
Will not work on just a blank screen. Im connected to wifi and my location is on, so is my child.
This app was great when it worked but half the time now it's inaccurate or fails to update the location properly. Going to look into other app options for keeping my kids safe.
