Droid Locator allows you to track you to know where your loved ones are with relation to you, and you can leverage all the google maps functionality like getting the driving direction, proximity to your location etc. You can now find out where they are, at anytime, as long as they have their Android phones with droid locator installed on it. You can also see yourself on the map and see nearby places and the proximity of the person you are trying to locate. Droid Locator also has the ability to send an SOS message along with its location details in case of the device getting stolen and sim card changed event.
How to make Droid Locator Work:
->Install Droid Locator.
->To get a remote location update, Enter the remote devices number or select one from your contacts and then click on Locate. The remote location would show in a map if the remote device has droid locator installed, or an invitation will be sent out to the remote device.
->Generate your friend list by selecting Broadcast settings and entering or selecting contacts from your contact list, these will be the numbers used for your location broadcast or SOS in case of sim change or phne getting stolen.
->Sim Track Settings: Here enter the sms that should go out to all the people you added in your list of friends, in case the sim is changed in the phone.(The IMSI number will also be sent along with that text), so essentially you will have the new number, IMSI and your custom message sent out to your friends as an SOS.
->Display Location: This will show your current location on the map.
->Broadcast: This will broadcast your location to everyone in your friend list in the form of SMS. You can also Share your location info in facebook, twitter or other social sites, along with having an option of mailing it or sending it through bluetooth.
Please note the following points:
-> For using droid locator to locate remote devices, you need droid locator to be installed on both the devices.
-> Droid Locator is an advertisement supported app, if you do want to remove the ads from the app please dont post unnessesary comments instead take some time and write in to me.
=> Did try a lot to remove SMS notifications from reaching the remote users, but looks like the mechanism to prevent this is not yet very concrete so reverted back to the old mechanism where the remote user will see an SMS on his/her phone. I guess this also resolves any issues regarding to privacy i.e. the remote user knows that he/she has been queried by someone for his/her location.
