    Family Locator

    Family Locator 

    Family Locator allows users to keep track of their near and dear ones via the use of GPS technology. You can simply subscribe to this service by running through the activation wizard online. The service requires you to have at least two handsets. One of them will act as the locator, owned by the parents/family members, and the other as the locatee handset, for the children/relatives to use.

    The Family Locator service is simple to setup and can be managed either online or from the phone. Begin by setting a zone and once the zone is set, parents/family members will have the ability to view their child's location in a 3D bird eye’s view along with the address of the nearest location where their child is. Although the location details aren't 100 percent accurate, they are pretty close. Another noted drawback of this app is that the phone being located must be switched on at the time the location signal is sent, as well as the children/family members need to have the handset with them. If they leave it at home or lose the phone, the Locator function is rendered useless. Overall, it’s a nifty application for parents or family members who like to know where their near and dear ones are.

    City ID

    City ID 

    City ID is an enhanced caller ID app that automatically displays the name of the city and state of an incoming call. It’s a great communication tool that provides additional information to help its subscribers in identifying unknown phone numbers. Though it is easy to get a different state number from anywhere, this app easily identifies different cities with the same area code.

    The settings allow you change the size of the display, font, and also the location on the screen. So, install this useful app, enable the settings of your choice, and you are all set.

    City ID, by Cequint Incorporated, is backed up by sufficient data on more than 20,000 cities across North America, which, according to the company officials, is adequate enough for identifying phone numbers calling from cities and towns within North America.
