Reachme:

It lets you share your location and the receiver also gets turn-by-turn direction to reach you.

Reach me, a Microsoft Garage project, lets you share your location with friends, and they get turn-by-turn directions to reach you.

Reach me guides them to your home, work, or any other favorite place. If you share your live location, your friends can see where you are in real time, with easy-to-follow directions that update as you move from place to place. Location tracking expires at the time you set, so you control how long they can follow you.

To share location with your friend, you should have the Microsoft Account (MSA) of your friend added to his/her contact information on your phone.

  • Tetra lockscreen is good app but needs several improvements.

    Needs integration with Bing wallpapers as the background can auto change.

    Number of default widgets are limiting. Should allow users to select apps to show up on the lockscreen.

    No notification for missed calls, messages, Whatsapp status, email etc.???!

    Calendar/agenda was a good addition, but could be improved. Allow setting appointments directly from lockscreen.

    Slow loading when screen is unlocked.

    Theres also a bug. Click on the calendar widget and swipe over to morning, overnight etc, you’ll notice that the date changes. It doesn’t revert back unless you close the widget and lock the screen again. (i didn’t have any appointments listed).

  • It’s nice, but when will be some different way of unlocking your phone, more secure way, like the knock code, Android has it, iOs has the fingerprint now, that mere 4 numeric code, hmm… I think Microsoft could implement a new way of locking and unlocking the phone with the upcoming updates…
