Family Orbit – Family Locator, Parental Control & Your Private Family Network [App Review]

Family_Orbit_IconYou may well remember the film National Lampoon’s Vacation when the Grizwald Family went on a trek to Europe and Wonder World (or was it Wally World?) and all the kids got lost, a crisis developed within the dysfunctional family and both children ended up having sordid liaisons with strangers. Well, nobody expects such a disaster in real life, but to avoid getting anywhere close to that process of mishaps, you could make doubly sure and download Family Orbit.

Family Orbit is an app that works like a social media for just the family members only. Put simply, it’s like having a Facebook for 5 (or 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 depending on the number of family members in your brood). It helps to locate your family and monitor the younger members by checking them out and discovering what they are doing.


Although you can monitor your children and discover where they are, it shouldn’t be looked upon as some kind of spying tool as it really is designed to keep you safe in the mind that you’ll never lose your children, even if you do lose them from your sight. You can share content with your children: let’s say you have all gone off to Italy on a family vacation and little Jenny and her brother James wish to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa, while you and your spouse prefer to see The Colosseum in Rome – as you take video and pictures of your experience, you can send them to your kids to show them what a great time you are having at the ancient ruins.

Likewise, Jenny and James can snap some great pictures of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, eat some local pasta and sit upon the grass outside while sending those images to the parents. Should any emergency arise, you can connect to them at the touch of a button and sort the problem out quickly. It is good to know where your children are 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

You may rise in the morning and wander into the bedroom where James is sleeping and notice that his bed is unoccupied. You could be staying in some villa in Spain or Portugal and worry that he may have been out all night or gone missing. But a quick check on the Family Orbit app will reveal that he has gone for a morning jog on the beach and once more, this app gives you that peace of mind.
