  • Redundant...

    I downloaded this app and it worked very well by notifying me that I was about to be parted from my phone but after removing the very piece of software most people downloaded it for in the first place it has failed in my opinion in justifying its existence.. I deleted it permanently and unless the proximity function is reinstated I will not reinstall it again. I cannot find another programme at the moment which does anything similar.
  • Absolutely useless.

    The only future I downloaded it for doesn’t work. The Apple Watch out of range function. Disappointed.
  • Good App But Causes Problem with Apple Watch Wifi

    I like the app, but hate it now as it restrains my watch to connect to known wifi. Including all 2.4 Ghz secure networks. Once I deleted the app it worked. Reinstalling the app disconnected it from my home wifi. Please fix it so that I can start using it again.
  • Lose the advert for premium

    The app is useless. A designer somewhere thought it was a good idea to force an advert for the paid version as soon as the app opens. No one thought to include a close advert button. There is no way of getting rid of the ad rendering the whole app inaccessible.
  • Annoying

    I like this concept, but the amount of spurious pings I get is beginning to get annoying. I'm buzzed 3-4 times and HOUR on the lowest setting, even though my phone is constantly on me. I am guessing this picks up on dips in bluetooth strength, and i'm beginning to wonder if the dips are normal for a bluetooth device, otherwise why the hell am I getting so many alerts? Other than this, the rest of the features are redundant, since they are already available in the Apple environment. I'd just like an app with the single feature of letting me know when my phone is not close to my watch. Update: permanently deleted. The one thing to was useful for, warning you when you walked away from your phone, has been removed, rendering the app completely useless. Thankfully I have another device that accurately warns me when I've left my phone behind, without the annoying fake warnings.
  • Just one glitch

    Safe Wifi, for some reason, disconnects me from my home Wifi; when my iPod is in locked mode. That never happened before that function was introduced. Needs to be fixed.

  • Useless application

    Absolutely useless app, not worth installing. Contact are already backed up in iCloud, so you don’t need to share contacts with a 3rd party app. Secondly the developer is also misleading by stating iOS doesn’t have an option to send last location when battery is critically low. This is an available option in iOS.
  • Removed the only useful feature!

    I (like many) downloaded this app for its ability to warn me on my watch when I was moving away from my phone. It did give false reports occasionally, but overall it was useful. Then the bloat began - first it was free security stuff, none of which was of any use whatsoever (accompanied with the tactic of let's scare everyone with horror stories so they will use our product) then they started wanting a monthly fee to use these useless features! But I persevered and just simply turned all the crap stuff off! Then they went and did an update that removed the only feature we actually wanted (because they cannot charge a subscription for it?) no warning, just bang feature gone, didn't even announce it in the upgrade text, we were left to find it hidden in the faqs! In my opinion, this is the worst kind of company, one that does not care or listen to its customers - my recommendation, avoid them and their apps!
  • Great
