"We’re sold on Onmaway and as such, the app comes highly recommended." - AppAdvice

Onmaway is a simple and secure way to share your location with friends, family, or social graph over a specific period of time; whether it’s your spouse for 20 minutes or your social network for the length of a cross-country trip.

The app allows you to send a link and customized message to friends and family via text, email, and social media that, unlike "Find My Friends," lets them track your location on any web browser, not just on another iPhone.

✓ Let your family watch you drive home from work;
✓ Parents track kids as they walk home from school;
✓ Watch college kids drive to their new campus;
✓ Watch as friends move to a new city or state;
✓ Update co-workers on your way to office;
✓ Let friends know you’re headed to the pub;
✓ The possibilities are endless!

Location tracking apps by cell phone service providers can cost $20 a month or more; Onmaway is a onetime purchase that you can use as much as you want.

Texting while driving is dangerous and banned in 39 states with more passing legislation now. Over 30% of all traffic accidents are caused by “distracted driving” and that number increases with teen drivers. Remove the distraction of updating your location to your friends and family with this low-cost solution.

Just so you know…

▸ Onmaway utilizes the GPS functionality in your iPhone and iPod Touch (3rd gen+), which means, just like any other map app on your phone, it can be a bit of a battery drain. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We suggest you plug in your phone or limit your use of the app if you’re worried about battery life.

▸ Onmaway can run the background on any iOS 4+ device, but if you have another app that needs the memory space, your phone could kill off Onmaway and thus stop tracking your location. If it’s really important, leave it running in the foreground.

We're actively working on updates and features, so please send us feedback.
Our verdict: Ok
  • + Onmaway - Share Your Location without Texting While Driving is an ok, 3.5-star app.
