My wife and I travel a lot and we've been using Find My Friends on iPhone to make sure we both get home safely. Today I jumped ship to Android and of course, we lost this native functionality.

Are there any cross-platform alternatives to Find My Friends?

Ideally I would be looking for simple look me up functionality, but the following optional features would be nice as well:

  • Geofencing (get an alert when my wife gets home)
  • Ability to temporarily suspend access
  • Share location on demand (via SMS or the like)
  • 2
    Related: Phone locator app for android (though not specifically cross-platform). Starting point until answers arrive: List of location sharing apps for Android (though I cannot tell which of those are cross-platform).

  • @Izzy: Do you have a suggestion for a "domain" tag for this question? (it currently only has tags for the required OS, but not what kind of software is needed / what the software is about)

    @unor something along the lines of geo-location?

    Hint: if you don't find one, stop thinking iOs/Android and start thinking browser Jan 13 '17 at 9:56
