Protecting loved ones with help from an app: Life360

Techstination feature for Thursday, November 10, 2016

Protecting loved ones with help from an app.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.    Life360 is an app designed for iOS and Android phones that allows…when you choose…family members or loved ones keep track of one another’s location….and call for help when necessary.   The basic service is free.   And now Life360 is out with a new subscription based add on called Driver Protect.  Co-founder and President Alex Haro…. 

“We’re the very first solution that is  software only that uses the sensors available on your smartphone,  like the accelerometer and the gyroscope to understand how well you’re driving, how fast you’re driving and being able to detect car accidents as they happen.”

It can provide peace of mind for parents of teens…even though the share location can easily been turned off and on at will.  There are many other useful scenarios.     The price for an entire family is 70 dollars a year or 7.99 a month.     You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
