What's new in this version (1.3):
This app is designed to send a string of emails to a preselected recipient account, each of which details the current location of the person carrying the device. These emails have a link to open Google Maps with a green icon marking the location.
The use is for sending your location to a friend in case you get lost or have an accident. It will also signal the location of the phone in case you drop it. If two users have the app installed in their phones, the app can be used to keep track of each others location.
Using the two scrollbar menus, the user preselects the interval between emails and the maximum time to run the tracking for.
The default setting is 10 minute intervals for a 12 hour duration. This would send up to 73 emails, 1 to start and 4 an hour for 6 hours. You may wish to alter these settings depending on your intended use. If the signal is weak, a message will be skipped.
You also must preset the recipient email, but this should only have to be done once, and afterward the app should remember that address.
To set the email, tap the email setup button at the bottom of the landing page and then type your chosen target email in the upper white Text Input box of the new page which appears. Leave no spaces (for example firstname.lastname@example.org ). Then tap the middle button to save the address permanently (unless you change it later). Check that the correct email is saved by tapping the lower button.
You may wish to add a short comment in the white Text Box. This cannot be changed in the middle of a round of tracking.
Now when you have it all set up, tap Start to begin tracking. When you are done with using it, remember to tap Stop.
If the location is temporarily unavailable, no email will be sent, so the number of emails received may be less than the maximum number expected.
The app will continue running in the background until it is stopped, and does not need to be visible on the screen to work.
