This app is s great concept and even worked really well for the first month but it needs a bug fix. If I try to go into places to modify an address I'm immediately kicked out of the app. So frustrating.
Just OK 3/5
Sometimes the location is accurate, sometimes not. I just had an issue where the map showed a family member over 20 miles from where he actually was. After a few minutes, it updated to his correct location, but that kind of inaccuracy is concerning
Best one available 5/5
This app has it all. You can find where people are, notifications tell you when people arrive or leave a specific location, and its very easy to set up and use. Now I'm just waiting for the Android version to become available so I can get the rest of my family on as well! I've tried many of the other family locator apps, and this one blows them all out of the water!
Great until... 3/5
My family & I liked this app until yesterday. When I touch "places" my app shuts down & I have to open it. It's great feeling to know your family is safe. I don't have to TRACK my kids who are 17,20 & soon to be 24, but we all can look to see where everyone is at. My oldest uses it the most!
In need of serious attention 2/5
It's bad when you try to open a function in the app (places) and the app crashes even after hard restarts. Please have the developers squash the bugs that are killing the quality of this app.
My Kids Actually Like This App 4/5
This is a great app for keeping track of your family and making sure they are safe. It lets you know where they are, and notifies you when they arrive at and depart from places you have predesignated. Your kids will like it because it saves you from both from bugging each other with a lot of texting and phone calls, such as "Where are you?" and "Call me when you get there." And it's free!
I would have given it five stars, but currently the "Places" feature that allows you to add predesignated places doesn't seem to be working. Touching the "Places" icon makes the app crash. But even without that, it's still very convenient to see where your entire family is on one map.
I have discovered a workaround for the "Places" problem, but only if you are already a user of Family Map and have therefore already designated some places/pins. You can redesignate an existing pin you have already made to represent a different location. Touch an existing red pin on the map (one you don't really use much would be best, of course.) A white information box about that pin/location will appear. Touch the "i" in a circle in the the upper right-hand corner of the box and it will take you to where you can edit the name and address of that pin. After you edit, the pin will then move to the new address and have the new name. You can change/edit any of your existing pins as the need arises.
Great App! 4/5
My 15 yo has no problem keeping this on because he has *nothing to hide* and knows this app AND the thought is much more than "stalking" them. Stop that. 🙄
- Anyway, this has been a solid app to keep track of my shockingly responsible teen. The only really annoying thing is setting up the location addresses. I get 4-5 alerts "kid left school - kid returned to school" when he moves classes. Other than that, it's been very helpful when buses are late or when it's raining and I know the best time to drive to the stop... things like that. There's always room for improvement (inputting addresses!) but this app has been really stable and I appreciate that as a mother!
Please fix the app 2/5
The app keeps crashing make it faster
Very glitchy! 2/5
Originally had this app several months ago, then out of the blue it disappeared and I could not get it back. Now that I was able to get the app back ( I have no idea why I can now get it ), it will not allow me to name any of the pins I drop. If I click on places , it takes me out of the app completely and back to the home screen. Have tried updating, uninstalling and reinstalling , all to no avail. Good concept, but too glitchy.
Family members 1/5
Need to turn off notifications of selected family members without removing them completely.
By Hair by Mimi
I think this app need to be fix, it doesn't work anymore it's show my child left the house and arrive for about 15', but she actually in bed..
Started great--now useless 1/5
I loved this at first. Everything worked as it should, used it for my 2 kids. But its no longer working (no obvious reason why it just stopped working). For example, for kid1, his location is stuck in the same place (home) and all I see is "location 24 hours ago -- locating" when I try to see his current location--it will not update. Ive deleted and re-created his user profile several times but no fix. For kid2, there is a huge lag in getting notifications of arrivals, departures, etc--sometimes 30 minutes or more after he has arrived, which makes it useless to me. Also kids complain that the app drains their battery. I use this app to keep tabs on my tween who is becoming more independent, and my high schooler who commutes a long distance to school each day. But sadly Ill be moving to a different app.
App keeps crashing or clising when I go to places to add another saved location. Please fix because I am unable to add change or even view the locations I have saved. Otherwise I liked the app a lot
Keeps crashing 1/5
It was a great app until I started having problems clicking on to places and it keeps crashing I added a new family member and now I can't add a photo. Please fix this.
THE APP ISNT WORKING?!!!!
Why ??? I really like this app and haven't been able to use it this week. When are they fixing this?
The app is not working 1/5
By A R M E N
This app is not working this is a joke it works when you're Family member next to you but soon as they leave a house you cannot find them
I HATE THIS 1/5
I'm a good child who doesn't party or sneak out. My parents wanted my whole family to get the app and I was cool with it. last night I had a sleepover with my friend and apparently my phone notified my parents I went away from my friends house. They tried calling but my phone was on silent and I was sleeping. Next day I was grounded and yelled at and I'm beyond mad because I DID NOTHING WRONG!!!
Places crashes 1/5
I love the app but it has been crashing every time I go into places. Please fix this.
Plzz go 1/5
This app is the worst thing ever plz get rid of it
Extremely slow 😔😔😔 1/5
Extremely slow to update ,and to locate family and send alerts. Second report still the same problems. 😔😔😔
Never get this unless you want your children to hate you, pointless app. waste of time
Great when it works 3/5
I like this app. After the last update it will not allow me to add new locations. Please fix this!!
Far out-performs Apple's stock app FindFriends 5/5
Much better in tracking users, and customizing locational data, than Apple's stock application FindFriends. Also very user-friendly!
Awesome tracker 4/5
This is a fun way to share locations with family coming and going everywhere. We travel a lot, kids work a lot and Mom goes places. To those those kids that dislike this - just wait! It becomes apparent when you become a PARENT! Nice peace of mind all is well.
Just can't add new places with last update.
Needs parental controls 4/5
By iPhone Fanatic
Great app so far, gives accurate location. Needs parental controls.
Very Good App, but an issue with Places 4/5
The App is very good!!, very straight forward!!. The only issue is that I can't include more places, every time I press the "Places" icon the app goes to the background and the desktop appears. I hope this gets fix soon.
Slow to show actual location 3/5
Is their a fix in process so that when you look at the map, you see where the person actually is located? Love the idea if the app and my daughter is on-board with it as well. But, she will be at a location for 20 minutes or more before the map updates. A lot could happen in 20 minutes! May have to find another app.
Support ! 3/5
By Lane run
I love the idea behind this app. I used to have find friends but since I upgraded it can't be found. My entire family of 8 have this app and it is required with my children in college. But -- app is very delayed at times. My daughter has been at one location for the past two days which I know as a fact she is not. Can you tell me if you are fixing this issue or do I need to move to a more accurate app? Can you please help!
Not accurate 1/5
This app just showed my daughter's phone was 3 miles from her school and I had to verify that she was actually in school, which she was. Deleting this app today!
Awesome app 5/5
I love this app so much!! It lets me know where my kids are and what they are doing and they love it too because they know that we can see where they are and they won't make bad choices!
Read parents and kids 5/5
I'm a kid and you know why I'm happy about this app because where ever I go I feel safe because my parents know where I'm at. Those people that say parents stalk and are being rude are dumb. Because what if your child say no this is dumb and they download it geuss what in the future there going to get kidnapped and I god bless that don't happen , but anyways if they got kidnapped you have this app to know where there at and so I don't care if my parents know where I'm at because all I know is that they love me and care for me, listen you love your child and she or he should love you no matter what. So go and download it. It's free
Great app 5/5
Does what it says it will do. Not a moment's trouble out of it yet, and because it works so smoothly, I don't anticipate any.
Very Frustrating. 1/5
By Cyncha from Ripon
This app is good when it's working correctly. It seems to "freeze up". It does not tell me where my family is, only that its "locating".. and when it does locate, it's not accurate. You need to fix this app.
Please read parents 1/5
Do you want your children to hate you? NO child likes an overbearing parent. How do you expect your children to grow up and be social when you have a tracker on him/her. If you give your child freedom and respect it will be given back to you. If you cant trust your child by the age they have a phone, have you raised them right? Sure, use this app if your want your kid living at home in their mid thirties.
Good concept but needs LOTS of work! 2/5
The app has a great concept but needs ton of work! I use the app to make sure my sons get to the bus stop, to school and back home safely. The problem is that I will get a notification in the middle of the night that one of the boys is at the bus stop! That will even show on the map. Then 5 min later they both show at home. Or...there is such a long lag that my sons will have been home for 20 min before I get the notification. Please take some time to fix this app!
Inconsistent results 2/5
I have noticed delays with location alerts and often shows family members at the wrong location very near the correct address. Best example is when we all are in the same car and get conflicting data.
Hate this 1/5
Why the **** do ******* parents need to know where the **** there kids are all the time. My ****ing b**** mom is trying to take the last of my freedom with this ****
Every time I try to make a new location i crashes!! Need to update.
Don't download 1/5
For stalker parents.
I hate this app 1/5
I don't need my overbearing (and loving) but overbearing mother crunching down even harder on me, they didn't grow up with this tech so they don't know what's too much and this is too much
Why make this app? My mom wants to know where I'm at at all times now 😑 please delete
Good app 5/5
Mejor y más precisa que app (Buscar Amigos) de Apple. It is more precise than the app Find My Friend...
By BJG 70
I love family map but recently I cannot put any thing into places... It just flips back to my main page... What can I do to fix this...
Love this app!! 4/5
We have been using this app since October 2015 and LOVE it. It works wonderfully. We recently have trouble trying to add a location. When we click on "Places", the app crashes. Please fix ASAP.
App keeps crashing after opening. Please fix! Need more accurate addresses and maps.
Should be able to have separate accounts for blended families. One for mom. One for dad living separately.
By The worst app ever OMG
I don't understand how you use it I just don't
Good app, but can you have multiple families? 4/5
We like this app but can you have more than one family? I would like one for my moms family and one for my dads. They don't necessarily need to know where each other are.
Family map 3/5
By Chas Chiara
Not bad but often can't find my daughter and even goes completely offline for days at a time with no warning and no info from the company. But it is free.
Um delete this app 1/5
By Uh delete this app
Please delete this app it's pointless and horrible. Thanks
