TRAVEL GEAR: App to Track the Family

You can call it “Big Brother”, but any parent who has lost their child for a moment in a crowd would LOVE to have the ability to find their loved ones pronto. Enter an App (that’s application mom & dads) from AT&T that allows you to kep an eye on the family via a GPS map on your phone, and the ‘ping’ off of their phone. The device can also be used from a home computer.

Its called the FamilyMap app for the iPhone. It’s great to see if kids are walking to and from school, but I prefer it for those days when all are out and about, say at an amusement park, or county fair. Those wee ones always seem to step away at that very time.

The FamilyMap app is a free download, and then will cost you a monthly fee of $9.99 for up to two phones or $14.99 for up to five phones.
