    Nice innovation there. Can now track my boyfriend easily..lol

    1. lol.. that's if he accepts. Besides, he can HIDE.

  2. Yes, it's cool especially since the other person will have to approve the request. The SOS commands makes alot of sense too.

    1. lol..that's for relationships without trust and understanding
