Share Your Location when You Want with Share Where

Were you a fan of Google Latitude for mobile before that went the way of Google Reader? Do you wish there were a similar solution, but with more control over exactly when and with whom your location data is shared? If that’s the case, XDA Forum Member xoLax‘s application Share Where may be exactly what you’re after.

Like Latitude for mobile of old, Share Where allows you to share your location with certain contacts you designate in advance. However, Share Where sets itself apart by allowing extreme control of how share your location data. Share Where also allows you to share location through any number of modalities such as Email and text messages, and allows you to streamline the process through the use of customizable widgets.

One useful and practical scenario for Share Where would be to broadcast one’s location discretely in the event of an emergency. You can setup a predefined widget that informs your loved ones exactly where you are so that they can come to your rescue, and it can do this without much user interaction. Clicking the right side of your created widget shares your location as you previously designated, whereas tapping the left side allows you to modify its parameters.

Whether you wish to share your location with friends and family for fun or simply wish to broadcast your location in the event of an emergency, Share Where is an elegant solution to the location sharing problem. Visit the original thread to get started.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea.

Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
