LocSMS - Text GPS Coordinates!


Ever bad this back and forth conversation?
Friend: "Hey where are you?"
You: "I'm in the park, uh, near that one tree"
Friend: "Wait, the tree where that hobo almost stabbed you or the tree where we finally found your shoes?"
You: "No not that tree, the one where" (blah blah blah)

Well NO MORE! LocSMS lets you send your current GPS coordinates via SMS to any number. The recipient will be able to open the link if they have any smartphone made in the last few years.

You can kind of already do this with the built-in map function but it'll try and give you the closest address which doesn't help if you're in the middle of a park, a large outdoor concert, etc.

Features:
* Google maps embedded so you can actually see what you're sending.
* No ads, no 'lite' version, just a useful app.
* No unnecessary permissions like other similar apps. You maintain control over where/how text messages are sent.

So so Works ok. Seems to be coming up with the right coordinates. Will not send the sms since I changed the default messaging app to hangouts. I try to send,it asks about changing the default app. I say no. It goes back to the map. Not good. Just send the sms using current default app. Great idea tho. It's what I was looking for except for the one hitch.

AtrixHD Downloaded app & tried it 6 or 7 timea! I would open the app & wait for it to find my coordinates, then i would tap share location via SMS (hit the green button) it would then take me to my messages & ask me to enter a recipient. So I would then I would try and send, but the message would not send due to the fact there wasnt any message details! There wasnt any coordinate information transferred to the message to send ! So simply put app doesnt work!! Will revise review if issue is fixed!!!

Good simple tool, accuracy wanting A simple tool to grab and share your current GPS location without unnecessary bells and whistles (and without Google's street address obsession). Accuracy leaves a little to be desired, but if it used assisted GPS rather than straight GPS it would deserve five stars.
