    My wife and I would like to be able to track our two teenaged sons whereabouts. I have been playing with several apps. My wife and I and one son has an android phone, while the other son has an iphone. Can someone recommend a good app to do this? I don't mind paying for the app, but don't want a monthly fee. Also, by the time we all download and find out if the app is good, the return time will expire. Any help is appreciated!

    Are you trying to find out without their knowing? Because Latitude I think can be turned off by the user, which would nullify your goal.

    Laugh! Make sure they realize that you would know if they turned it off, and there would be major consequences if they did!

    My wife and I both had latitude set up and running on out Android Phones. Even with the GPS turned on, and us in the same room at our house, it said she was 5 miles down the road and I was 3 miles down the road. It always placed us at the same two spots, yet not where we actually were.

    Ours have been fairly accurate. Sometimes when we are in the same room, it has one of us at our neighbors.

    I've been using Life360 for about a year. I'm generally pleased with the accuracy and performance. I have it on my two daughters' iPhones, my wife and my droid, and the family iPad (which doesn't usually travel far). Regular updates have steadily improved the product.
