Remember Google Latitude? This app is similar with more extras.
meerKats is for everyone who needs an app when travelling to record their locations or simply to view Google maps. It can see everyone's locations in your list and show directions to get there. It also has a "lone meerkat" feature which allows users to login to the system and when the time expires automatically send SMS messages to everyone in your private meerKats list.
Just like meerkats, this app looks after everyone in your private meerkats list. When one goes wandering (like a lone worker) it notifies everyone and when one go astray, that is if the user did not log-out for whatever reason except when the phone is dead or off it will SMS everyone. A good private safety feature for wanderers / lone workers. After you login, you can turn the app off to save battery, but make sure you logout before the time expires. The app remembers the time you logged-in and what time you're suppose to log-out.
You can check everyone's last known location and vice versa. When you check someone's location, it automatically updates your location as well. In the next version we will add a feature to mask your location if you want to go hidden, but that will mean you can NOT check other meerKats location. Because every time you check their location, it also updates your location, remember?
But first, you need to add contacts to your list. You do that by sending them invites via SMS. If the app is installed, they will see a notification and will activate the app when the notification is opened. If the app is running, it will "talk" to the other phone via SMS messages to complete the process of adding to meerKats list on both phones. If not installed, they will see a link to download the app. Make sure that you check the list because sometimes it makes double entry. Surely, you don't want to send 2 or more SMS to the same number.
In the lone meerkat/loneworker screen, please remember that you need to long press buttons to activate them. This is so they won't be accidentally activated. Whenever using locations, please wait for gps connection to be established. It may take a while depending on your location.
If you decide to be "hidden", choose Hibernate instead of Close app in the main screen. Your location is masked in hibernate mode and the app will not respond to any SMS message.
This app only works with handset that has SMS capability because it needs to talk to other phone via SMS. We do not collect your phone numbers. We only use it to establish connection to add contacts to meerKats list in your phone. Once installed the app generates a tag name for each user. We use this tag name in the location database in a cloud server. No need to open any account.
WARNING! THIS APP USES INTERNET CONNECTION, GPS CONNECTION AND SMS MESSAGING WHICH WILL COST YOU MONEY. The developers will not be responsible for any loss in case of the phone's malfunction and or app's misuse. We will not be responsible for any money cost associated in using this app. This app is intended for personal use only. Use it at your own risk.
