Life360

Life360 is a family communication, location and alert app for smartphones that allows users to share their locations with each other.

Once set up on a phone, Life360 allows the administrating phone to set geo-fences defining chosen areas. Geo-fences can be used, for example, to track when family members arrive at or leave work, school or home.

The application also offers driving analysis through Life360 Driver Protect. Integration in cars is also available, with BMW building Life360 into their navigation systems. The app monitors assigned drivers and provides reporting, crash detection and emergency response.

Life360 was created by Chris Hulls and Alex Haro. The app was first released on Google Play in 2008, after winning an Android Developer challenge and receiving a $275,000 grant. The developer has received $90 million in funding, including assistance from Google and Facebook. As of this writing, the app has over 40 million subscribers.
