Good in theory This app has so much potential, but it doesn't work. Eg. I set it up when leaving the house and activated it via the SMS command within a few minutes of leaving my front door. Instantly I started receiving 'activation reports'. About 40 within the space of a few minutes. All the same photos of nothing. I deactivated it by SMS and reactivated again several hours later...and nothing. When I got home I walked in front of my smart phone to try and trigger it, but nothing happened. I'm uninstalling it.

Keeps crashing on startup. Good idea, but on my Galaxy S4 Mini it crashes when ever I start it.

Not a Google spy I give this app 5 stars simply because it's free and unobtrusive, unlike some other apps of this type that want your email address AND passwords and access to your Google accounts. The only problem is that when testing it, sometimes photos come through as a camera icon instead of a photo. I don't understand what's going on there.
