Today we bring you a very simple application and that you can save a lot of problems. There are times that we want to be controlled to a certain person, be it by example to our children, to our seniors or to a well-known that we do not know if it is ok. In the mobile there are many tools to share our location but today we bring you probably the easiest application for such a purpose.
it Is Location SMS, an app that we will have to give permission to read our text messages and access the location of the mobile. Its operation is as follows. We give access to the contacts that we want and that’s it. When any of these people want to know where we are and simply need to send us a message that says: “Where are you?”. Automatically the person will get back a message with our location.
Find out where are your contact even if you have no connection
The power of this application lies in two aspects. On the one hand its simplicity, since it consists in sending a single message. On the other hand, is the fact that it is through SMS. Today, many tariffs offer free messages and has an advantage over WhatsApp, and others. Is that you do not need internet connection to be able to send location.
The person that will receive the message you do need the internet to view the location, because it sends us to a location from Google Maps. The application should only be installed on the phone that you want to be localizable.
A simple app and requires no internet to let your chosen contacts know automatically where you are.
in Addition to the function of sending location, location SMS allows us to make some adjustments to suit our tastes. The first of them is select from our list the specific contacts that you want you can send us an SMS. On the other hand, the application let us create a concrete code so that any user can send this SMS and get our location back.
Another interesting option is the ‘Geofence’. It is create a security area and every time we enter or leave will send an SMS automatically. The app also lets you set a specific time. This can be useful the first few days that we leave the baby in the high school only or to make sure that an older person has reached home properly. The use of this application and the criteria to follow is already in the hands of the users.
An additional function is the ‘Lost’. In that case if you send a message with that word the phone will ring at full volume even with the do not disturb mode. An alternative use to the function of ‘Find my phone’ when we don’t have the internet activated.
The app currently only is in English, but does not have many menus. The only thing that the message itself must be “Where are you?” and not “where are you?. Location SMS is available for a free download, although it has a purchase integrated from 1.99 euros to allow any user to send us this message.
the cost of The messages is not included so we will have to take this into account when using the application. A very interesting where we promise to maintain the privacy of the text messages and that can serve to stay alert of the situation of our loved ones.
