Which cross-platform ( Android , Windows 8 phone ) mobile apps can share location in “real time”? Usually such apps do not share in real time but after 30 minutes or so. Therefore question specific.
Well, I am quite surprised that no one mentioned Google Latitude. I have not personally used it, but am aware that it provides the required feature.
Yes correct and I am aware of Google latitude providing same feature.
But does it have app for WP8 phone as in this question?
Unfortunately, no, they currently support Android and iOS devices only. Still, you can try going to latitude.google.com from your Windows device and see if it works. Else you can check their App Store too. Sorry I have not used the OS yet so I may not be of much help there.
I believe Waze has a feature like this, too. It's not available for Windows phone but it is available for both Android and iOS.
Asked for app which supports for WP8 and Android
Oops, that you did. Sorry then -- that's one of WP8's main issues really... not enough apps. Sorry for not being able to help.
Thanks for your interest in this topic!
Pl note that there are many apps for WP8 phones for this purpose. They have to be expertly filtered out to match them according to criteriae in the question
Glympse, check if it does what you need
Glympse does not have app for WP8 but significantly : Am looking for an app wherein the person with whom location is being shared can on his own view the location ( either in browser or in same mobile app ) thus excluding the pre-requisite for sharer to manually share location url or data through app to the person. In other words - automatic sharing
Sub question b) Can one know location of phone by the imei number of phone? If yes, pl elaborate how
Locate your nearest and dearest – on the go – in real time!
Though the app is for both Android and WP8 the location feature is supported in neither
the article date is 2009 Windows mobile 8 phone is more recent
Windows Phone 8 – Now Connected!
perhaps you have to check if it does what you need?
Thanks for your interest and perseverance!
As I had mentioned Nimbuzz supports both Android and WP8 but location sharing/retreiving "feature" is not available in either
Thanks for doing so much research.
Appending Subquestions : a) It was noted that pingme's webpage does not WP8 app link. It's WP8 app link you mentioned displays that the app is no longer published.
b) I understand that Four square location has to be sent to user's contacts
c) It has been noted that wechat has feature to find friends nearby. But does it find location of friends in the app contact list?
