Welcome to Greenalp. With this app you can essentially do two things:
1.) Show your own location live on Google Maps. This way your family and friends always know where you are and that you are safe.
2.) See the location of your friends and family members right in the app. Just ask them to install this app.
Additionally this app provides tons of extra features (geofence, track and trace, etc.) which is why it is one of the most popular real-time gps trackers for Android. Please have a look at the feature list below.
Important for battery saving: By default this app is configured for high frequency tracking and high accuracy, which needs quite much battery. If you would like to save battery it's strongly recommended to run the battery wizard. For extreme power saving, use the remote control to run the tracker on-demand only.
There is an app review available at http://www.androidtapp.com/real-time-gps-tracker-2 .

- Geo-fencing: Receive automatic notifications when a tracked users enters or leaves an area specified by you (geofence).
