Let you know your friends and family about your location
Share Where - Location Sharing is an application that allows you to share your current location with anyone you'd like. This can be useful in several situations and especially for kids and elderly people. Also, don't hesitate to use it in dangerous situations.
The app presents a widget that is created to write a predefined message, select your chosen recipients, the mail or phone number and even set the timer. When you use the button, the location will arrive in form of a link to Google Maps, that is, in the easiest possible way.
Ola Bjuremo is the developer of this application available in several languages (English, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish), the perfect app for letting know where you are when needed. Easy to use and simple.
"Share your exact location with friends and family via Google maps. Lost in the city? No problem. Can't find mom and dad? No problem. You can send a secret pass-phrase to your phone if you've lost it (or if you're wondering where your kids are at, at 11:30 in the evening) to have it send its location back to you. Go pro, and the phone can be set to send its location repeatedly.

Option to hide sending or sent msg at notif
Since sharing location service is closed by Google, time to seek for a replacement and this app does pretty well.
Does not work inside building or on public transport. Purchased it to test it and it is useless for me, but I hope that "hick up" will get fixed in future version. It keeps failing to get my location while other apps do not have that problem. In few hours that I have app I was able to get location only once after few minutes of scanning.

I actually had installed a "pro" version already after getting it as a free app of the day, but I'm buying this anyway as a token of my appreciation. This is not an app that I need to use regularly, but it's handy to have around, and could be a godsend should the situation arise that I must use it. Despite my rare need for it so far, I did test it out every now and then, especially after each upda
I can not think of anything else that anybody would want this app to do. I spent a day (I'm an older person with too much spare time) downloading and testing apps for use as an EMERGENCY ALERT and found this app exceeded all expectations. No other app has the features of this app. I have since done extensive testing with this app and found all features of it are absolutely brilliant. It is a very
