GPS Share

GPS Share


Have you ever been trying to meet friends in a large public space, but been unable to find each other? I created GPS Share for just such a scenario.

GPS Share lets you privately send a Google Maps link, GPS coordinates, and/or your street address of your location to whomever you want, whenever you want, however you want. Send an SMS message to rendezvous with friends at a stadium or email yourself a reminder of where you parked at the airport. Post road trip updates to Twitter.

Unlike Latitude and many other services, GPS Share does not run in the background and does not share your location with a third party. You use it when you want it.

GPS Share is free and Open Source software and has no advertising. Internet access is used only to download Google Maps tiles.

Recent changes:
Version 2.1: Better way of moving your position by hand: Just pan the map instead of dragging the pin!

Version 2.0: New and updated for modern Android devices!

Now you can include your GPS Coordinates, Street Address, and an app link! Plus, you can manually reposition the pin by long pressing and dragging it.

Finally!

Get it! One of the most useful apps on my phone. Easy to send your location, or where you're going, to others by sms or email, and they can click a link and "navigate to". Works perfectly S3 and iphone 5. Thanks developers!!

Excellent app, extremely useful I've been running it on my Samsung Note 2 for years without fail. Best of all it even works without a data connection. You may not see the map but it still locates you and sends an SMS of your coords. I've also installed it on both generations of my kids phones...first on Samsung Galaxy 551 (GT-i5510M) now on the Samsung Galaxy Core LTEs...again without data, works perfectly. Only thing I would ask Ken is for one touch send buttons (max 3) or widgets to auto send to predefined receipients. Great work Ken!

Very nice app. But the messages are always sent as mms and not as sms which needs mobile data to be working. Would been more usefull if can send my coordinates without needing the mobile data.!?
