It's free and no adds works great!
I wanted a way to quickly help my family members find each other, but I'm not a huge fan of the idea of having my current location posted in some webserver somewhere (call me old fashion). Now I can easily send my location out to family and friends without having to worry about privacy settings and all that nonsense. Thanks!
Finally an app that the sender can send their location without the other person having to be running the same app. My kids can text me if they've been drugged or hurt and unable to give me directions. I can find them as long as they can just click on the app and press send. It would be great if it did give the number of the sender if they are unable to type, or an option to allow the sender to be identified. Much better than someone calling that's incoherent and doesn't know where they are, trying to explain where they are. But if they use the app I know someone is in trouble and I can find them. Thanks
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
