Squawk! is the only military-grade, permission-based iOS app to track the location of your friends and family in real-time.

Includes a web sharing solution so your friends don't need an iDevice to follow your progress.


Send & accept friend requests to track friends & family privately - or - use public channels to make new friends!


Squawk! is the ONLY app of its kind. It allows you & your friends to share your movements on a map. We’re not talking about ‘occasional updates’ like apps you’ve seen before - we’re talking about real time tracking. You’ll see where your friends are & which way they're going. You can find friends using public channels (like a walkie-talkie) or send them invites through email for privacy.


Squawk! lets you send messages back and forth. It even utilizes push notifications to send messages to friends who are offline. No reason to use up your text messages!

You can broadcast your movements to a URL that friends and family can follow. They’ll be able to see you move & send you chats. It’s a great way to let people know where you are!


Squawk! can run in the background, allowing you to track & receive messages without being in the app. Switch background tracking on in your settings tab.


Squawk! can be used completely privately - you don’t need to show your location to any strangers. 


- Meet up in the big city. No need to try to explain where you are, just switch on Squawk!

- Staying together on a road trip.
- Keep track of family members. It’s the easiest way for kids to ‘check in’ discreetly. 

- Check in on friends or family members doing something potentially dangerous (biking, running, etc).

- Use web sharing so friends & family can watch your progress in a race (marathon, bike, etc).
