    "This is a good app if you want to locate friends and family easily. For me personally, it’s just not necessary. I cannot imagine an instance where I would need to use this. I would just text the person who I am trying to fight. So if you want to have a friend locator great. If you have a child that had a phone I could see it being useful . But is just not for me"

    "Great app to use at festivals! With crowds you never know when someone or yourself can get injured and need to use first aid. It gets right to the point so you can quickly find what you need in an emergency. "

    "Great app! I have felt like I can finally find my friends wherever they are without having to be constantly asking them. I know it might sound a bit odd but sometimes you want to surprise someone and you can’t do it! This is awesome and i love meeting up with my friends so easily. Also, it is good for safety reasons!"

    "I was looking for an festival app and while this app provides features like a flashlight and map, there is no information about festivals happening around me. I would have liked it if it had integrated information about what is going on around me."

    "This app is great for identifying songs I like or hear on the radio but I don't know the title or singer yet. It pretty much gets me the answer in about five seconds. There have been a few times it did not work, but it works more than not. "

    "This is absolutely not what I was looking for at all. I wanted a festival app, and this is an app to remind me to drink water. I mean, I guess it's useful to remember to hydrate at festivals, but this is a pretty big stretch for a query solution. I'm calling this a bad result."

    "I stayed with two awesome people before going to Coachella last year and it was nothing but good times. I found out they were going to be attending too so I didn't have to go alone! They showed me some handy festival apps like a drinking water app to make sure I stayed hydrated and an app to manage my alcohol. I don't know what I would do without them because they took care of me so much!"
