There is no shortage of people tracking apps out there so families can keep their members safe, but this location tracking smartphone application uses different technology to do so. Rather than using GPS (which can drain battery life) or 'pre-geofenced' areas, the PlaceUs app from Alohar Mobile uses artificial intelligence and phone sensors to determine where you are. By monitoring the patterns of your movement, PlaceUs uses context awareness to improve relationships and communications.

The location tracking app is less about people tracking and more about ameliorating communication between family members and loved ones. The app will recognize stop motion and send notifications to people in your inner circle about your whereabouts, and will send another one when you leave. In more heavily populated areas, the app will give you a list of options so it can be as accurate as possible.
