    "This is a fun little tool to play around with, but I found more often than not the results just weren't very accurate. It has some serious lag issues as well, although that's pretty much standard for most non-professional location trackers."

    "I've been testing out various methods on how to best keep track of my high school kids with their newly equipped iPads for school and I think I've found a suitable app with this one. It provides real time updates to me, via my email, text or even a phone call to myself to notify me of their whereabouts. The app is secure and private, keeping our data to ourselves and the intuitive menu makes adjusting the options as simple as can be."

I was looking for best location trackers and the end result was a tracker for my pet that seems to be too narrow a category or not as relevant as a more broad term result I would have like to see,"

    "For the past few years I have been on the road a lot traveling from town to town and I wanted to make sure I can find my pet dog if we get separated in new cities and towns that I have to visit for conducting business in. I was looking for an app that has GPS technology that will allow me to keep track of my dog while I am at business meetings. I found this amazing animal tracking app, called Sunny&Lucky Pet Tracker that I installed on my phone and I absolutely love it, it has literally saved my dogs life, like the time he ran out on the highway and I found him using the tracker. He could have been hit by car or worse. Thank you Sunny&Lucky Pet Tracker for saving my dog's life that day."
