Personal Review: Family Locator Life360 App

For the past month, I have been testing the Family Locator Life360 app on my phone. The app advertises that it "is the world’s leading location-sharing app, and is the best way to stay connected to family, friends, and everyone in between." I've used the app with my family and have found it to be easy to use, reliable, and accurate. I can set it up to alert me when a family member arrives and/or leaves a location. In addition, at any time, I can pull up a location for a family member and even learn the battery life of their phone. I did purchase the Premium plan for $4.99 per month and feel that it is worth the cost. The Premium plan allows me to set unlimited places and includes a 30-day history.
