Ratings and Reviews
It's a good app so far... But it's unfortunate that it's limited to the US and Australia only.
Wouldn’t even let me sign in the first time...deleted
Something is off with this app. The app takes you to its website when you click on the icon, and asks you to set up an account, but the first response back is a “password invalid” type message, but it never even confirmed my new password or new account or sent me an email to confirm anything. Then when I googled the app, the page that comes up is the same sign up page the phone desktop icon takes you to. The whole experience was too shaky for me to buy into their onerous terms and conditions. Deleted.
Good idea for vacation
We have been using this app to monitor our ocean filled vacation. Only wish we could access Florida a little bit better from the Home page. I like the information and feel it’s definitely useful.
