How To Keep Track Of Your Family Members Using A Phone

Google Play, released a new app couple of days ago which allows parents to track their missing children. This app is designed specially for parents, that is why it has been named FamilyTracker. Although, it can be used to track anyone once the person has given permission.

This app can work on any Android or iOS device and it gives the location of your friends and family in almost real time, it updates the location of the device every minute and it can even take up to an hour judging by the connection. The best thing about FamilyTracker is that
it doesn't require a GPS enabled phone, but both the phones should have access to the internet and Google Maps must be installed, otherwise this app won't work. Here are the features of this app:
  •  Track Android and iPhone devices
  •  Force updates remotely at any time without the user having to take any actions and it does not matter if the application is running or not
  •  Ability to send a "Stealth Ping", which forces an automatic location update of the remote device without the person being notified
  •  Even if the phone is rebooted, Family Tracker will automatically resume tracking and updating its position!
  •  Track phones via the web
  •  Free texts between phones
  •  Force a sound even if the phone is on vibrate or silent
  •  Virtually no impact on battery life!
  •  Find your phone when lost or stolen
  •  There are no limits to the number of users to track
  •  Post your current location on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.
  •  Tablet compatible
  •  Great for businesses! Track your vehicles, shipments, etc.
  •  Uses all the possible location methods: GPS, Cell Tower Triangulation and Wi-Fi (if enabled). That provides the best possible balance between accuracy and dependability
  •  Tracks equally well cell phones and tablets
  •  Uses the pictures from contacts or you can set a custom photo for every person you are tracking
  •  Displays the approximate address of the devices being tracked
  •  The most reliable and full-featured cell phone tracker on the market!
  •  Works anywhere in the world, including free texting across borders.
This app costs about $4.99 on Google Play, but wait...

Why Pay When You Can Track A Phone For Free?

What if I tell you that you can use an app which is better than the above one and is also free.

Google Latitude, was developed 2-3 years ago. Google Latitude can work on any phone that has Google Maps. This includes Android, iOS, Blackberry, Symbian and even Windows Phones. Here's a video by Google, which shows how Latitude works.

After watching the above video you can see that it works similar to FamilyTracker. The only downside is that it lacks functions such as sounding an alarm remotely and sending free text messages which can be found on FamilyTracker. Though, it does provide the tools for basic tracking. Of course, you need to give permission and Google Latitude should be installed on all the phones that are to be tracked.
