About GeoShare:

GeoShare is real-time location tracking for your friends and family. Unlike other services such as Foursquare that lets you broadcast to a large number of people where you are, GeoShare allows you to broadcast your real-time whereabouts to a select few people. Unlike Google Latitude GeoShare does not require sign up or invitations to work.

To share their location a user simply has to:

  1. Pick someone from their phone’s address book
  2. Send a text message with a link to their whereabouts
  3. Stuff the phone in their pocket until they reach their destination or meeting point.

Recipients of the link don’t even need to have the app installed to see the sender’s location on an interactive web map. Whenever the sender wants to stop sharing they simply hit stop and go back into private mode.

    Let us know if you understand what the product is supposed to do and whether it sounds interesting to you. I completely understand what the app is all about. However, as interesting as it may sound, I don’t think I would ever want anyone tracking my movements in that way.

    Download the app. It should be available in the next few hours on the app store here. I have downloaded the app to my iPhone. It downloaded within seconds. Upon reading more about the app in iTunes, I discovered that once I have send the text message, I can turn the service off when I am done to remove myself off of the grid.

    Does the product fit in your daily life? I could see where this product may fit into my life if I were in the city or somewhere else and I wanted to let my friends find me if we were split up or separated for some reason. However, otherwise, I don’t think it is something that would fit into MY daily life.

    Is the product easy to understand and use? Definitely easy! The explanation on iTunes explained everything I needed to know.

    How do you think this app compares to other similar apps? I think it’s extremely comparable. I am sure that this app will be a hit with the younger crowd. Those that are out on the town partying, or shopping. It’s FREE to, so that is a definite plus for me when downloading apps.

    Additional Feedback: Upon further reading and studying the app, I did learn that even if you forget to turn off the search, it will automatically turn itself off to enable your privacy and battery. It does run in the background so it will decrease your battery life. There are very fews apps that I allow to do that.

    1.Visit http://www.geoshare.us. Let us know if you understand what the product is supposed to do and whether it sounds interesting to you.

    I visited the website and right away, I was able to clearly understand what the site was about.

    2.Download the app. It should be available in the next few hours on the app store here.
    Direct link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/geoshare/id398395304?mt=8

    I downloaded the application to my phone.
    •Does the product fit in your daily life?

    This product would fit into my daily life. My daughter just turned 11 years old, and I think this application would be good to make sure I always know where she is. I think this application can work well with teenagers who are not disruptive, and rebels.

    I think the product is very easy to understand, and someone who is not very phone savy can understand and operate the application.

    •How do you think this app compares to other similar apps?
    I think this application can offer alot of good, especially for kids who are doing after hour activities, the parents can know where the kids are. There should be something however that will allow the user not to pick who can see where they are. The parents should have an option to override this feature.

    Overall, I think the application is a great asset to today’s world, both for kids and adults, in this everchanging digital age.
