Family by Sygic is the new family safety app from international leader in GPS navigation software Sygic. The app enables parents to see real-time location of their children, making countless phone calls to check on where kids are unnecessary. The app is going live today on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

“We wanted to create an app that will help its users in their everyday life. As parents we want to raise our children to be self- reliant but we also need to have confidence that they are safe. Family by Sygic gives parents this peace of mind, while kids will appreciate that parents don't feel the need to call them all the time to check where they are,” said Sygic's CEO Michal Stencl.

The app shows real-time location of all the family members on the map. It allows parents to set up Safe / Unsafe zones and sends automatic notifications when kids enter or leave a zone. Geofence is useful for one-time notification when user enters certain area. Augmented reality shows family members in the real surroundings – for example if kids are running around in a park. Navigation to family member's location can be launched from within the app. The app also features free family messaging. iPhone or Android phone, with data services, is needed to run the app.

The app is free until January 31st on Google Play and App Store. Later the price will be 2.99 Euro per year/family. Find out more on
