Life360 Family Locator
Quite simply put, this app drew rave reviews from mothers who told us about the great sense of ease and relief they felt having a tool that could locate their family in an instant. Whether it is an family emergency, a natural disaster or some other need to know instance, being able to locate where everyone is brought tremendous peace of mind. Some testers noted that it seemed a little like stalking, but felt it was necessary in this day and age. The app even displays a map of nearby police stations and hospitals along with a list of registered sex offenders. Another nice feature is a single button that your teenager can press to let you know that they have arrived at their destination without having to “call mommy”. Our favorite comment came from a mother who mentioned that it would make secretly shopping for a gift pretty problematic. Her husband asked why she was at the cigar store when she said she was getting her nails done!
