When you want to follow the location of certain person, the smartest thing to do is to use light, feature-rich and battery friendly GPS tracking app. There are several options that are good and available on the App Store and Google Play. Today we will talk about one of the best ones – Chirp Phone Tracker. This app combines more than 60k users and it is one of the best travel apps on the App Store. Let’s go over the features and the options this app will enable to its users.
Chirp Phone Tracker is mostly aimed to family users. We have tested the stability and reliability of the app for the both versions on an iPhone 6 and Galaxy Note 4. The sign up process of the app is easy. When you open the app there are 6 options.
The first one is to “Add Someone To Track” option. If you want to track someone you need to send the invite code via email or SMS/text. When that certain person accepts the invitation code, you’ll be able to see that person’s location at any time. That leads us to the second option “Connections”. There you will find all individuals that you are connected with. They can be your friends, kids, parents etc. There is a status (online/offline) for each person and besides seeing their location, you can chat with them as well.
With “My Pins” option you can set your locations. You can leave pins so other users can see your visited locations. In “My Location” on the other side, you can see your exact location on a map and inform other people about your location. “Map” will not only show your location but follow you and your speed. This data can be send to your connections, so you can follow your child’s driving speed for example.
Chirps also has a “Panic Alert” button. With it you’ll be able to send panic alert to your emergency contacts that you can previously set up. On the “Settings” option you’ll be able to see and use different subscription models.
At the end of the day, Chirp Phone Tracker provided us with great amount of features, stable GPS connection and tracking and the battery usage was surprisingly low. Some may argue about the subscription models, but stability, features and quality will not come for free, trust us! The app is available for free on all platforms and so far is receiving mostly positive feedback. It’s in the top grossing 25 Travel tracking app in the App Store.
