Tracklings: Location Sharing for Practical Use Without the Battery Drain

in Travel (E)

[] Prague, Czech Republic - So you want to share your real time location with a select group of people, and for only a limited time. And, just as important, you need your phone to stay on the whole day and not get drained of battery power within 4 hours. Oh, and you want total control over the whole thing. Sound about right? Then Tracklings is the answer. A location sharing iOS app will be available for free this weekend only.

Tracklings 1.2 helps you organize an event by sharing your location with other participants, but unlike common "I am here" applications, Tracklings gives you full control over who participates and who and when can see your location and status updates. Everything is based on the event.

Create events on the fly - a few simple clicks starts an event, no account or login required. Invite participants from your contact list and you're all set! Close the event when you no longer need it. Your position is shared only by other participants in the same event and only while you choose to be active within that event (even when Tracklings runs in the background). You'll always know who else is active! Once the event is concluded or you decide to leave it, your location is no longer shared.

Tracklings allows up to 10 participants (including the organizer) in a single event. Invitations can be sent via text or e-mail.

Tracklings is a paid app. There are no ads and no usage of your location data by third parties (or any other hidden revenue model). The user pays for the app and gets full control. A free "Tracklings Lite" app lets users participate in events created by others. After this weekends' special offer, Tracklings will be a Tier1 paid app.
