Hi guys,

So I decided to create an app based on a simple idea my fiance gave me, and thought I'd come to you guys for some feedback.

In a nutshell, it's an app that will respond to an SMS trigger with the users current location.

1. Someone SMSs you "Where R U?"
2. Your phone works out its location to the closest 100m (if possible)
3. The app generates a google maps link
4. The app SMSs it back

That's the core of the app, but I've also created a "premium" version that has some other features such as a customisable sms trigger, geotagging, blacklist/whitelist options among others

What I'm hoping to get is a bit of feedback on my app and perhaps the way I'm going about a paid version of it. I'm very open to suggestions and I'm happy to provide the apk to the full version for those who want to try it.

Here's the link

Cheers!

Angry by the way I have an issue
Hi, I was wondering if you can please provide information about how to use the black list/white list thing in free version, because I only want to send replies only one person so if I enable white list and add that specific contact to the back list /whitelist list, then will it work or not. I need an answer for this from you and asked from you to add details about this list configuration information on the Google play

Hi chorauoc,

Simply set the blacklist type to "whitelist", then add the contact you want to the list. The app will then ignore requests from anyone else Sorry for the ambiguous use of "blacklist", but I didn't really know what else to call it I'll update the app description to make it a little easier to understand.

Thanks for the feedback!

I love this! Its a simple way for me to know where my 8 year old daughter is and make sure she is where she should be if out at a friends playing! I can see this app will become invaluae to me as my daughter gets older and more adventurous in life. Thanks for this.

One suggestion for paid version feature is hide app draw icon if at all possible? As this would stop it being messed with by said daughter who by the way knows I keep tabs on her but accepts and understands why I do so, as my mother used to say 'Only privacy any child should have is in the bathroom!' But just because she knows does not mean she won't mess
