With the holidays pretty much upon us, a lot of parents will be looking for gifts for their kids. And one of those gifts might possibly be their very first phone. I remember when I got my first cell phone. I was thirteen years old and it was my birthday. When my parents brought out my new cell phone, I was so thrilled that nothing else mattered at that very moment.
Of course this was back in the day of old phones that only did one thing - call other people. Now we have phones that can download apps and do many other functions.
So if you're thinking of getting your kid their first phone this year, then you need to download Life360 before giving it to them.
Life360 is an amazing app that helps you check in with family from anywhere you are. With Life360, simply open the app and add people to circles. You also have the ability to add separate circles which allows you to organize your family members based on who you're with at any given time, and they can be short-term, like just while you're traveling together. After you finish that, you instantly see everyone in your private circle on the map. Users can also message the whole group at once or on a 1:1 basis.
I really liked using Life360 because it helps me have peace of mind without making me feel like I'm driving my family nuts. Since you can check-in with someone instantly and also help locate a family member, it's way easier than calling to keep checking in.
Another awesome feature is that you can get alerts when your family comes and goes. So if they leave the house, you know when they did and when they get to their destination safely. I love this so much since I worry when anyone leaves the house without me!
Overall if you want an easier way to keep tabs on your family and loved ones, I highly suggest downloading Life360. Currently it's available on iOS, Windows and Android.
