5. Let’s Go
No texting to say you are “5 mins away.”
When you invite someone to an Approach, you don’t need to know what smartphone they have. Approach is available for both iPhone and Android and geostreaming works seamlessly across platform. If an invitee does not want to install the app, they can use the Approach web view with a limited feature set.
It happens all the time – you are on your way to meet someone but the traffic is bad and you are going to be late. You call or text the person from your car and let them know. This is dangerous behavior that could cause an accident. A better approach (pun intended) is to start an Approach before you start the car and invite everyone you are meeting. That’s it. They will know exactly where you are and when you are expected to arrive, so they can adjust accordingly.
An Approach is active only for the amount of time you specify. When that time duration has elapsed, all participants stop geostreaming. You don’t need to remember to turn off location sharing like some other apps; it’s fully automatic and your location privacy is 100% in your control.
Approach has Settings that enable you to automate starting an Approach based on events in your calendar. The app will prompt you prior to a meeting, and upon confirmation all meeting attendees will automatically get an Approach invitation.
Approach is FREE to use for up to 10 participants. We designed it to do one thing really well, and it is therefore very easy to use.
