  • ***** WillJD55 It’s like a much more interesting version of snapchat. All of the features work well, and it’s easy to use - you can get going immediately. Leaving music is a particularly nice idea. This app breaks up the monotony and impersonal nature of most social media. It’s nice to have an optional feature which allows the person receiving a trace to ‘stumble’ upon it. If it was kept secret, and they only got an alert when they passed close to the location.
  • ***** LunMa Great app, I love finding things around me left by friends or strangers and I love placing photo and videos all nigh over the world for everyone to find. Really cool. I also like commenting other people’s traces…it’s a new level of engagement!
  • ***** EddieBo14 I am not massive fan of social media, but the fact that these messages are personal and private, and so linked to the location you see them in, makes it such a unique exciting app!
  • ***** sc0396 Great to be able to leave hidden messages for friends to pick up, music feature is particularly good, worked brilliantly in London on 3d map!
  • ***** plumcheek Now I am looking into the world again. Finding the little bubble is the best feeling. Words can’t say. Amazing thank you thank you!
  • ***** Socmediasceptic I don’t use Facebook Twitter or Instagram and I’ve sent my wife 3 little traces in two days…it’s just give give give!
