    "If you like to keep track of where your friends are, this might be your app. Its a fairly standard sat map woth little pins of where you friends and or family maybe. It gives me the creeps though, knowing someone could be looking at their Mobile and see a little dot that represents me moving around. Luckly the app seems to have issues with connecting, so i might still be hidden."

    "GPS Tracker & Locator Standard is an app by FollowMee. It is a paid app for iOS devices. You can now check the location of the devices you are tracking if you use the app's website. This is a pretty cool app but make sure you only put it on devices that you have permission to install it on. It could be an invasion of privacy if you sneak it on someone's device. It does fit the topic though."

    "Let's me keep track of the kids while they run around. I can find my wife when she is out shopping a little easier too. If I could get one for the dog then I would be all set."

    "This App sounds better than what it delivers for many customers. I like that tasks can be assigned and managed, and family members will be notified when they're in the right place to perform certain tasks. And in theory, this can provide parents a lot of peace of mind. And yet in practice, it seems a lot of people have trouble getting reliable real time position updates."

    "This is great at figuring out exactly where your friends and kids are at all times, whatever you're using it for, and I've never had it give me incorrect data. On the other hand, I haven't been super impressed by the security encryption they use, so I'd be careful about how you use this if you don't want other people to know too."
