Do you have someone who texts you where you are every hour? You may be driving, in lecture or running for the bus etc and it is not possible to text them asap. Sometimes you may not even know where exactly you are.

On the other hand, if you texted boyfriend/girlfriend asking where they were and they don't get back to you right away, you start to get anxious....

Our android app TextLoc solves this problem by automating the process. When someone on your trusted contact list sends you a text asking "where are you". A text gets sent back automatically with the coordinates of your current location and a link from google maps where the receiver can choose to click if they want to know the location plotted on a map. Using the phones gps means that the sender does not have to use any data!
