Ratings and Reviews
The answer to outdoor communication problems we all have
As an outdoors adventurist, I often find myself lacking any phone signal to communicate to family and friends unless I find a perfect hill top. Pairing the app with the hotspot allows me to not only reach out to my family and friends anywhere in the world, but also gives me peace of mind with the SOS feature. Compared to others, this app is seamless and user friendly. Very innovative and futuristic approach to communication and safety.
Excellent functions with some weird bugs
It’s excellent for communication and navigation in the wilderness. The one bug which is poorly communicated is that once a contact makes a Somewear account (which they need to do to follow your location) all messaging comes through only via the online Somewear service, rather than SMS. SMS texting is allowed only to phone numbers not associated with an account. This app could be improved by allowing users to communicate via SMS with contacts who also have an account. Otherwise, any contact who hasn’t also downloaded the app can’t be reached,
I use the Somewear box on an airplane quite frequently. As for the app, excellent work. The signal seems to vary greatly, but when you’re traveling at 500 miles an hour, that’s probably to be expected. Keep up the good development!
