Tips & Tricks

  • Double-tap a widget to quickly launch its group. This is easy if you want to see the map.
  • Tapping on a person on the map will show you how long ago their latest GPS update was.
  • Long-press your profile picture in the side (hamburger) menu, this will toggle your location setting. This is also useful to force update your location to the server in some cases.
  • Although it's quite obvious, long press a theme in the Widget Theme overview screen to clone, share or delete it.
  • You can also clone default themes to edit them!
  • When creating a theme, you can demo it using a group of your choice, when pressing the group button in the top right-hand corner.
  • When long pressing the Magical Location Clock icon on your home screen (on most Android devices), you can access some shortcuts. These can open a certain group or the theme overview screen. You can also long press these shortcuts to create a special icon for it!
  • When viewing a specific group, tap the title or image of that group to quickly change its name, icon and "Other" location.
  • You can see which users have access to a group, even when they are not sharing their location to it, using the "Users with access to this group" setting in the specific group screen.
  • If you've bought the app (or not, but you really should) and like it very much, besides telling your friends about it, you can also donate using the dedicated button in the side menu. This will help me a lot!
