Pocket Ping is an application that allows you to record your personal location diary and display the results (we call them TreadCrumbs) real time in the app or on the web. You can also easily share your TreadCrumbs with your friends ... and the best is, it is totally free, anonymous and requires no registration. And to make it even more fun, you can see one friend's TreadCrumbs in the app alongside your own!
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Staying in touch with my family
This app is fun to use and practical at the same time. My brother and I use it regularly to feel 'not so removed' from each other. There is just something about being able to see someone that you care about moving around, doing their day to day activities, etc. that makes you feel connected. PLUS he lives in New Zealand which is earthquake heavy, so if something happens I can know whether he's been near a quake, and if his family is safe!
Can’t share threadcrumbs
My email to support@ was returned undeliverable. The only reason for my having the app and keeping it operating in the background is to allow siblings to locate my position in a disaster situation, whether in earthquake and wildfire probe California or while globetrotting as expect to continue doing for more than a tear. The link they received vis sms opens to a map of the world, but no threadcrumbs. Probably just ditch the app now and preserve my battery charge for longer.
Oh, but it is interesting to see just on my own iPhone....but what’s the point, I already know where I’m at.
Amazing location-based app!
I use this app to check in with my family when I'm on the road for work. I was recently driving through Missouri and luckily just missed the tornados...my family followed my TreadCrumbs and because of this, they were reassured that I was out of harms way. I like how this is a user-friendly, private location-focused app that gives my family and I a feeling of security.
