What are users saying about OwnTracks

by R####:

I tried everything, waypoints and locations are working but no more events entering/leaving. And yes, with no disconnect between locations (WiFi off). Please Fix, it's almost useless now...

by J####:

great! nice way to get your location history without sharing it with some company that does who knows what with it.

by Y####:

Worked great until an update sometime in the past couple of days, now it immediately disconnects from the server (mosquitto reports "Socket error on client user/device, disconnecting.") as soon as its connected. Sometimes it manages to publish a location or two from the queue before it disconnects, usually not.

by F####:

It works well. Biggest issue for me is massive Wakelocks. All of a sudden owntracks decided to keep my phone awake and drain battery. If there was a bug report built into the app is do it. I'll rate higher once wakelocks are addressed. Quick reply from Dev gets a boost in rating from me. Will edit review again when bug is squashed.

by C####:

Exactly what I needed. Works as intended,and integrates into other systems without too much effort!

by E####:

I have been working to configure this to work with home-assistant and after much finagling and doc reading it works. Would like to have more display control on old devices. MQTT is behind a lot of decisions but some simple GUI controls over display would be nice.

by N####:

Used the iOS version for a year, and loved it. Two months ago I switched to Android, and find this version very unreliable. Detects the entering of a region only about 50% of the time, often hours after the region was entered. I have it integrated with my openHAB system, which means I'm entering the home in the dark, then dealing with lights randomly turning on in the middle of the night. Additionally, there's no circular outline of the region, and there's no region only mode, meaning unnecessary data usage

by H####:

This is for you if you are looking for a privacy oriented gps tracker solution and most of all : if you are willing to read an excellently composed documentation. Built it for my kids, nephews, nieces and children's friends. On a Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

by K####:

Really wanted to use this to fit in with my love for MQTT and the numerous automation softwares it works with but causes a massive performance hit on the phone and destroys battery life. :-(

by O####:

But after an update it always fails to reconnect and i miss status updates.

by X####:

The current Android is behind and lacks support for https connections that are needed with the sandstorm deployment of own tracks.

by P####:

Best ocation tracker/reporter app, with in depth settings. And its completly free!

by M####:

The perfect app for the location enthusiast with caring for the privacy

by B####:

I'm cautiously optimistic this version fixes the problem experienced in the previous version, so I've updated the review to 4 stars. I still need to update the wife's phone so I can see if the friends' location stuff is working... will redo review after testing...

by S####:

Great app!

by L####:

Excellent app

by C####:

Really simple clever and flexible system. Design of the system is very intelligent and documentation superb!! Hope to see some of the ios features included in this version...ie pedometer! Id setup a web page showing who in the family has done the most steps!

by E####:

I really want this to work, but it keeps crashing. In fact I got an android popup asking if I wanted to uninstall it because it has crashed so many times.

by N####:

Works as advertised and easy to integrate with Home Assistant using MQTT.

by H####:

Integrates well. Great time find something this able

by K####:

A tremendous app for people with programming background what, sadly, I am not!
