Let’s change things up a bit today and talk about a free cell phone tracking app that’s a bit different than what we usually talk about here at www.freecellphonetracker.net.

This type of phone tracking app is a bit different than many of the others that I write about but I still like it and I think you will too. This isn’t the kind of tracking app that you can simply jump onto any computer that might have an Internet connection and see the location of the phone displayed on your computer screen.

If you’re looking for an app that will do that, I suggest that you check out my comprehensive list of cell phone locator applications that is found on the homepage of this website.

What Is The Purpose Of This App?

This GPS phone tracking application falls into the category of a “GPS logger” and not necessarily a “GPS tracker”. GPS Logger For Android is really a no frills “bread crumb” type tracking app. What do I mean by that, you might ask? Well, if you remember the old fairy tail Hansel and Gretel from your childhood, you might remember them worrying about getting lost so they decided to leave a trail of bread crumbs that they could follow when they were ready to go home.

A GPS logger is very similar to leaving a trail of bread crumbs but you don’t have to worry about the birds eating all of the breadcrumbs and your precious trail disappearing.

Why Would You Want To Use A GPS Logger?

There may be situations when you would like to know where a particular phone may have been carried over a prolonged period of time. Let’s imagine that one of your children is recovering from a problem with drugs and you want to give them the freedom to go out and enjoy life but you also want the ability to check up on them from time to time to make sure that they aren’t hanging out in any of the old bad neighborhoods that they used to hang out in when they were using drugs.

Let me explain how you would do that using this app. You simply configure the application to calculate its location every so often. The setting for this is called “Time Before Logging”. You’re going to be choosing how many seconds you would like to pass by before the app logs its GPS coordinates again with this setting. The closer you set this to zero, the more detailed the tracking log will be but the battery will run down faster too. If you want the app to record its coordinates ever hour, you would input “3600” (60 seconds in a minute multiplied by 60 minutes in an hour) in this field.

Next, you would want to configure the app to automatically email you updates of the GPS log that the app is keeping track of for you. You can set this to be as low as every five minutes to as high as every eight hours. When you configure the auto email settings for the app, you’ll need to give the app access to an email account that it can use to send these auto updates to you. I simply entered the login username and password for my Yahoo Mail account. Just to make sure the app worked like it’s advertised to work, I set the time interval to every five minutes and waited. I was pleasantly surprised that in five minutes on the dot an email arrived in my inbox that contained a zip file of the GPS log for the last 5 minutes.

So, if you have the need to track a cell phone but you don’t necessarily need to be able to log in to a website and see the exact coordinates of the phone at any time, you might consider using GPS Logger For Android. It’s free and it works really well!
