Yes it’s worth the $1.25/month.

This is essentially my one-stop-shop for touching base with buddies. The group messaging, invite-only for only guys I trust (no thank you Facebook messenger), and GPS coordinates it sends (when “red smoke” is popped) is a phenomenal feature that I haven’t seen in any other accountability app.

My opinion: The 15 bucks a year is actually an incentive for my buddies to use it (seems like all the “free” things these days they just end up discarding. I want them—and me—to take this seriously. Having skin the game makes them take it seriously and actually follow up.)

Thanks for the tool, guys.

Life Changer

I have been able to check in with my squad of people to make sure they are doing good and staying safe. I am so glad that something like this had come out. It’s a life saver.

Saving lives

What an amazing app. What other app can say it started saving lives the day it was released? The operation is simple and built in standard operations out Military men and women know and understand. If you have any doubts about it’s worth go and watch all of the YouTube videos they have and you will understand the power of this app. The $1.25 a month is the only way to bring you an app like this the way it’s needed “ad fee”. Last thing you want to do in crisis is see how you could win money playing games online.
Again this is an amazing app developed by an amazing team of people with only one purpose. Saving lives.
