A Google user: “The basic functionality of this app if okay, I guess - but even though it's RARELY updated, they truly need to fix some annoying issues and allow for real-time tracking as well (or an option to turn on/off). My biggest complaint with the recently updated version is that I can no longer lock a phone. They changed it to "secure device" but that's utterly useless. The previous version guaranteed me to lock a device. This one, for some reason, no longer does that! Please look into these suggestions guys, and add/change them accordingly. We all know it's possible, just gotta take that next little programming step.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Thank goodness for this app! Was sure I lost my phone on the subway train. I didn't have this app installed, I just thought Google was somehow able to find it through GPS or something. It found nothing. At first I assumed it was because the phone was between stations and didn't have a signal at the moment. Finally, I realized I needed to install this app and hoped it would work when (and if) the phone came back online. I desperately kept refreshing my browser looking for an update, then BAM! The phone popped up on the map a few blocks away. I wasn't expecting that. the phone wasn't moving so I hoped that meant someone turned it in somewhere. I raced to that corner and started asking around. Sure enough someone turned it in at one of the stores I had been in. Turns out I didn't lose it in the subway after all but accidentally dropped in the ice cream freezer. What a relief!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Amy Cruise Queen: “I have had this app for years, starting back with Friends and Family! It used to be great. A couple years ago I even upgraded to the paid version. However, this year in February I was charged the annual fee for another year and in April the app stopped recognizing my paid version and reverted to the free version. I have contacted customer service multiple times and no resolution has been made nor have I been refunded for the paid version I paid for the year. (I have proof). Frustrating!” – 2/5 in Play Store

Lillies Of the Field: “When I first downloaded it, it worked great then suddenly I stopped getting alerts or I would get them randomly after the fact and now I'm not able to change my picture, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it twice and I updated it, nothing. I contacted support and they just keep asking me silly questions, and not getting to the actual problem” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Amy Wells: “Have been using this app for a couple months now. So far it hasn't let me down. As long as the person has location and data enabled on their device this app will pinpoint their exact location & will update every minute or when they leave said place. The only thing I would recommend is the app be able to run in the background using the device's GPS to show location even when the service is bad. It shows vehicles speed if user is driving,which is cool! Overall a precise loyal app!” – 4/5 in Play Store

audrianna rose: “Ugh. Best one I have tried for Android. Bugs after you use it once, it doesn't work anymore. So make it count, but its ability at pinpointing exact GPS is awesome. Even if you uninstall and reinstall, it keeps settings so you will see your entry still there. It needs to destroy all files on uninstall in the registry, everywhere. It just constantly gives ads on trying to use a second time and you never again can track any number. Get rid of the ads and charge for it. Also, delete doesn't work.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Ruy Gonzalez: “Overall, I like the app. Specifically, the ability to activate the phone's microphone, along with the ability to both listen and record the audio of it's surroundings. *I was about to purchase a Lifetime license; until I read that the app's listening function was Not included. Purchasing the license, plus a monthly subscription is required. 🤨 - No thanks. ☹️😠 *Response: Unlimited recording is useless if you can't "listen" to what you want to record. - ***These features needs to be combined.***” – 3/5 in Play Store

Jessi Dietrich: “Update: I've been using the app since 12/2020 and all was great until the past month or two. Very spotty/lagging location tracking. Other times I get "your kid is offline" message. Now I have that message with last location 8/29/22. We have tried uninstalling, checking permissions, etc... very frustrating!! Also, the map views are constantly glitching. Please fix!!!! So far, it's a good app. It does lag 5 minutes or so, but the options to listen and ring to the child's phone are pretty helpful.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “I've purchased the premium version hoping to get more out of the app and I dont get accurate locations. It doesnt show the history like it claims too. It'll say you're in one place but you're actually somewhere else. please fix all the bugs and have more frequent updates especially for the individuals who have purchased the premium version. Update the app once in a while. it's been a year since the last update. Fix all the bugs.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “When it works it's good, however, the location updates are terrible. Tracking almost always has a question mark on it. At this very moment one child was last updated 13 hours ago and the other a day ago. I have the paid version. Norton family parental control actually works better, but if this tracker would actually work the way it's supposed to it would be better. Basically, if you want accuracy your kids have to keep hitting the app to update it.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Would be nice if there was a privacy option that would disable all location sharing but still receive alerts ... I want my kids to be able to send me alerts but they don't need to know where I am all the time. 😀” – 4/5 in Play Store

Mr C: “It let's you text other ppl on your map & that is great. I am not sure how to use every part of the app yet but so far the only thing I would change is how many locations you can save and be notified when a person goes there ( should have at least 6 location options). This is actually not a bad app and can be used to keep notice of and stay in touch with ur friends & family. I am installing this on my kids cell next. So far this app is really good.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Using it for over a year now as a family locator without any extra features. I would give 5 stars, if not for delayed geofence notifications when a member of your circle temporarily loses data connection and you later get " ... left" and "... arrived" notifications together. May be the data loss should be a separate notification after some set time lapse. Also, moved "notifications" menu item into a Setting after the last upgrade was not a welcome change” – 4/5 in Play Store

Jim Ramsdell: “Extremely slow to respond to movement. Instead of tracking a driver in real time like Life 360 did, this one seems to move in 5 to 7 minute increments. It's good to find out where someone is after they've already been there for awhile if that's all you need it for. I'm sorry I had to replace Life 360 but it became unusable after a recent update.” – 3/5 in Play Store

It will lay out your track on a satellite image, with the names of the streets and then give you details of exactly how long the walk was, minimum altitude, maximum altitude, rate of climb, it's great! Update 4/6/19: it stopped working. Keeps track of time only, no GPS functionality, no maps, no distance. I wrote the developer twice, with screen prints, and have had no response.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I use this for work, doing plant surveys. The only con I've come across so far, and maybe the function exists and I just haven't figured it out, is deleting and adjusting waypoints as well as the path. Sometimes I forget to turn off the tracker and go beyond my planned trip. I would like to edit the path and remove that extra distance.

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Does what it says it will do! Really good app! Only wish it used a better map program like Google maps. And in the map view the screen showing you were the device is, is so large it covers most of the map itself. Also when the app is in "missing mode" the pictures it takes on a mobile device is FAR from silent. Can clearly here the shudder sound like a normal camera, and it happens so much it would be really difficult for someone to not notice.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I had prey on my pc and it worked perfectly but it doesn't seem to work on my cellphone. When I installed the app my task manager stopped working, and I couldn't close the background apps. Today the app asked for the pin code every single time, but I couldn't type it. I checked the touchpad and the settings buttons, and they were working just fine. At the end I had to force the restart and uninstall the app.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “On ticwatch pro, after triggering the sound on watches, there is no way to stop it - only to reboot the watches... Makes it kind of unusable, though I've initially installed it to be notified when I forget my phone. Anyway the app feels pretty nice - that's why 3 stars and not one or two” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “As others State when adjusting the volume of the watch ring on the phone there is no way to stop the ringing until you reboot the watch. That is annoying but possibly not a big issue for users. What is far worse is that the find my phone functionality often randomly just goes off. If this continues I'll uninstall.” – 3/5 in Play Store
