How it works:
Kids these days seem to be connected to their tablets and smartphones. Amazing devices, useful for education, gaming and social media. But that is not all. Most of these devices can also locate where they are in the world. And here lies an opportunity for responsible parenting.
Using this App, you can monitor the whereabouts of your kids, and engage in sensible discussions if and where appropriate.
Over and above, your kid can send you requests to pick them up, say after school or after staying with a friend. These pick-up requests automatically include the location, which can be of benefit when kid is in an unfamiliar environment.
The challenge is in getting the location from your kid’s device, onto your phone or tablet. When both your devices are connected to the internet, then this is not an issue. The App uses an internet connection to get this information across.
The internet is great when it works, but what if:
➤ Your kid is in a location where there is no wi-fi connectivity.
➤ Your kid has run out of their quota for data usage on their mobile device.
➤ Your kid is hiking in the great outdoors where there is no GPRS or 4G.
➤ Your kid is abroad, and you don’t want to pay for expensive data roaming charges.
In such circumstances, this App can send data using regular SMS text message technology. So in these situations where the internet fails, you can still find the location of your kid through their device, and still get requests for pick-ups with embedded location information.
We understand that some network operators charge per SMS. As a result, whilst we recognise that this technology is important, we let you set a budget for how many SMS messages are allowed using this App. As a general guidance, retrieving a location from kid’s device when no internet connection is available can use up to 3 SMS text messages, whilst receiving a request for a pick-up will use up to 2 SMS text messages. You can set SMS budgets both on your device and that of your kid. You can monitor usage of SMS texts from App preferences. By default and for your courtesy, we have switched off SMS options. These and other settings may be enabled from App preferences.
* Whilst this App can be used on both phones and tablets, some features require the use of a phone capable of sending and receiving SMS text messages. If not available these features will be disabled.
