To be clear, this feature is an experimental one that Google is trying out.But if you enable it, your friends on the service will be able to see where you are in real-time (and vice versa, if they enable it too).With its latest update, Google Maps is introducing a real-time location sharer that will allow you to send your exact position to a contact either directly or through a messenger like Whats App.If you’re following Google Maps directions, you’ll be able to hit a ‘Share trip progress’ button, which will let your chosen contacts track exactly where you are on your journey and your ETA.Many service that update location in the background instead tend to ping towers to see if you’ve moved periodically.
However, the company neglected to add a way for you to access your saved maps.
Shooter is developed by Sean Kennedy and Berger Bullet's ballistician and world-class shooting champion Bryan Litz.
Shooter is only available for purchase in the Android Market at this time.
The UI in the new Maps update shows that some features from the Trusted Contacts app were found to be particularly useful, but this will be deeply integrated into the Maps experience.
You'll be able to share to individuals or groups, and have quite a bit of control over how long you are sharing and how often that information is updated.
But that's OK; you have thumbs and can use another way to access them from your Android.
