    "I have used several different mapping apps. And while this one boasts of superior GPS navigation, I must defer. While living in rural Maine, one finds that apps like this get very confused when it comes to weatherized roads. Some roads are not open in bad winter weather and yet this app as well as many others will not differentiate between them. So if you happen to be on a road trip you may want to make sure its sending you down the right path. "

    "After the last time I lost my phone for a whole day I decided to get a tracker that could find my Android phone through satellite. The GPS Phone Tracker app was really simple to set up and helped me find my phone no problem the last time that I lost it."

    "I have had a lot of trouble with losing my Android phone in the past. I heard about an app that could track it for me so I decided to give it a try. Wheres My Droid seemed like it would be nice to use at first but it was a bit glitchy so I uninstalled it."

    "A really good idea, but sometimes it works great and at other times, the locations are very far off. The chat function is hit or miss, as well. Overall, it's not reliable enough to count on. "

    "This app for the iPhone is one that is of absolute importance to your safety and travelling expectations on the road or even at home. This app has been regarded highly for years within it's trusted performance and reliability. However, this status has changed with the recent version and the reliability factor has plummeted into a state of unreliability and usefulness. Until the developers correct this new version and make it worthwhile again, you best look elsewhere for your weather app."

    "GoSatWatch is expensive and ugly. As far as its accuracy, who can really say? The fact is it's too costly and unattractive to bother with."
