Battery Use Considerations:
Your battery use experience will vary depending on a number of factors, like your phone's age, make, model, OS version, battery capacity, condition, features, screen size, etc. As a location-based service, Locotext does use various signals (like GPS, WiFi, etc.) to attain your location. It must also run in the background in order to provide you its geo-messaging services and capabilities. This will lead to an increased use of your phone's resources including battery power. We advise everyone to monitor their phone when using the app to make sure the phone's battery is not detrimentally affected by continuous use of our app. With over 15,000 miles of logged test data, we have taken great care to build an app around optimizing the end user experience and preserving battery life so it can be used on an everyday basis. Still we know that everyone will have a different experience when it comes to using the app but we are working everyday to improve our app and create the best mobile geo-experiences.
We take your privacy very seriously, especially as it relates to your location and messages. Your privacy is as important as it is for us. As such, we have made privacy a major component in the overall design of our application and services. Locotext is a location-based services app, so the ability to identify your location is required to provide you with our location-based services. We do not store a running history of your location updates. We only capture location data when it is required to deliver or provide an app service. Additionally, we do not and will not disclose or sell your location-related information to any third party. As a communication-based app, Locotext is required to store your personal messages in order to provide you with our communication-based services. Note that the content of your messages created through the Locotext app are only stored locally on your mobile device and not on our servers. Messages created outside of the Locotext mobile app, like the Locotext Facebook app, are required to be stored on our servers, but content is encrypted for your privacy consideration.
