Chicago - March 6, 2015
Cago launched their location sharing app CagoMama on the App Store today. CagoMama has been available on Google Play since late Feb 2015. It is a simple location sharing app which helps you update friends and family to your where-abouts fast and easily. You begin by adding a “trusted” contact. Choose one or more contacts and press Send. It’s quite easy to use!
While the Android version has capability for your location to be queried by a contact in your trusted list - by calling you, this capability is not available in the iPhone version.
In the iPhone version, you can choose one or more contacts and send your location to them.
Available starting today on the iPhone.
The iPhone (on which you have installed CagoMama) will figure out your location and send an instant notification of your location to trusted friends and family of your choice. It can be reassuring to know your loved one's location. It can also be helpful when someone is lost or needs help.
CagoMama sends your current location in a Text message (SMS). You have the option to append a short message (40 characters) to your location. The app has to be installed on an iPhone, but the phone on the other end can be any make and model, even a non-smartphone. As long as it supports Text messaging, it will receive your location, in a Text message.
CagoMama is intuitive, fast, secure, and efficient.
The app does not store your personal information, including location, on any kind of server or cloud infrastructure. There is no registration required before beginning to use the app. It aims at finding your location in the most accurate, and fastest possible way. It has been tested both indoors and outdoors, and under varying availability of GPS, Network, and Internet. Since CagoMama finds and shares your location on-demand only, it conserves your iPhone's battery power.
Suitable for children and elderly.
CagoMama works well for parents to stay connected with their child's location. Your loved ones can put you at ease by sending you their location. Similarly for elderly parents - they can send you their location with the click of a button if they have lost their way. Locate them in seconds so they can be brought home to safety.
The app was created by Cago, Inc. – a mobile, web, and software systems development company based in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.
