There are plenty of apps for locating family members, but we are reviewing ‘Life 360’ as it is one of the best and accurate app. Life 360 debuted on Android marketplace in 2008 and was funded from both Google and Facebook. The app has remarkably placed its footprints on app stores. Life 360 is both mobile and web application with over 50 million families and is well known as social network for families.
Without wasting time on over exaggerating about the app, Lets see how it actually works:
The app has a decent user interface showing the location of the members in the circle on the map. The map automatically updates the location of all members after min 15 min by default. However you can update the location of an individual at any time manually.
Circles: You can add family circle as per your need and can add or delete a member at any time.
Places: You can add places like, home or work or whatever as per your need. However the free version only allows adding two places.
