Technology Matters-Location Apps

Technology Matters

    The app called Life360 sets up small circles of friends and family to automatically share information such as location and safe arrival.

    You can create custom circles too, like if a group is going on a hike or exploring.  This lets you keep track of each other for a short time.

    The app allows for chatting and sending private messages to other users.  It’s free for Android and iOS.

    The Zenly app is a real-time location sharing app to help friends keep track of each other and connect in person.

    Whether at a park, campground or concert.  Carnival or beach, the app lets others know where your are.  It is also free for iOS and Android.

    And the app Mama Bear Family Safety helps parents monitor their kids’ location, as well as get updates and messages from them.  Plus it has a cool name.

    Children can keep parents updated without having to text or call or check in.  It even has a panic button if needed.

    The app goes a step further by allowing users to monitor social media, and even their teen’s driving habits.

    It’s free for iOS and Android with premium features available for purchase.
