Performance and User Experience
Needless to say, that with such a great variety of security options the app has been pretty popular among families. Rather than sending messages and destruct your loved ones, you can just check their location, driving route and ensure they got to their destination safely.
What problems do users face anyway? First of all, it relates to inaccurate location tracking. Some people complain that sometimes they don’t get the correct location and the app freezes. Another problem is the app shows no network or phone off whereas the phone is connected to the Internet and works all right. However, the reason may be a bad GPS signal, not a problem with the app. There were also some funny issues when users told their phone moved around while they were sleeping. Some people note poor technical and customer support in emergency cases. 3.5/5.
The app is compatible with iOS, Android, and BlackBerry. The mark is 4 out of 5.
