FollowMee location tracking API

Does anyone else use FollowMee for location tracking?

I've been using it for about 9 months and not had any problems with it, and I've just discovered an API has been released for locating devices and displaying in your own applications (eg Indigo control pages?!).

Might have a play with it.

Hi,

Did you get anywhere with your request, I too think it would be a great idea to be able to use this with Indigo,

let me know,

Cheers,

Dave

Sorry, I didn't look into it.

I've still got a different plugin I'm supposed to be working on to get done first, so I daren't start another - Durosity might pop by and do me some damage. :-(

How is the battery life with it? Chameleon is building a killer location tracking plugin, but it works by pinging the phone via Find My iPhone and is crushing my battery life.

Re: FollowMee location tracking API

I have it on permanently on 3 devices, but I also have GeoFency running.

I get to 20% battery around teatime.

If I didn't have GeoFency running as well I'm sure it was much better before.

I don't mind 20% at teatime because I charge it up on my desk then; it's never died on me before bedtime.

Battery Life seems fine on my iPhone 6, would love to see this as a Plugin, I notice that they have an API (on a subscription service) so I would guess its possible for a wizard to build a Plugin.......here's hoping so..... :D
