With Latitude going away, I know a lot of you are looking for alternatives. You might want to try Share Where Location Sharing from Ola Bjuremo. It’s probably the quickest way to share your location with friends and family. Texting or emailing your location isn’t anything new, but Share Where has a lot of extra features that make it a must have tool for your location sharing needs.
If you want to share your location with someone, you can quickly do it from within the app. Just select someone from your contacts or manually type a phone number (for SMS) or an email address. You can send your location to multiple people at the same time as well. You can even add text such as “I am here”, “Meet me here”, or “I need help.” Then simply tap the “Send” button and your chosen contacts will receive a message via SMS or email with your message (if you included one) and a Google Maps link showing your current location.
As I mentioned there are a few apps that do similar things in the Play Store, but Share Where takes things a step further. Lets say you are traveling and you want to give regular updates on your location. You can simply choose a repeated time interval (ie 5 minutes, 10 minutes, etc) and your contacts will get a message at each specified interval. Furthermore, if you have Android Jelly Bean 4.1 or higher, you can see the status and amount of time left until the next message is sent in your notification area. You can even cancel any future sharing through the expanded notification.
