    "This is one of the most useful apps that I have on my phone. I really like how easy it is find things, especially when I am in an area that I am unfamiliar with. The amount of options is top class, from directions, to locating a restaurant, or just about any other need. I would highly recommend having this app at your disposal. "

    "This app gets the job done. If you're comfortable with the idea it could potentially be tracking you at any given time, of course, but if you're in a bind and absolutely need to get this sort of info across, it serves its purpose. I've used in a situation where I unexpected had to get off the train at a different stop and someone needed help finding exactly where I needed to be picked up. "

    "This looks like a neat app, but I don't think I would get a lot of use out of it. I would be looking for something more family oriented instead of family and friends and I would also like to know what kind of security they have in place."

    "Super Tracker is really easy to use in terms of adding contacts and easily toggling sharing option on a per-contact basis. This makes it convenient for families as well as larger circles of people. It runs with a notification so I know when I am sharing location and can easily turn it off any time."

    "It does what facebook or google does but faster and the receiver doesnt have to have the app or any special tools to view the link with location with map"
