How is Tehula different from other location based apps ?

Contrary to other applications, Tehula was not built to share your location but to ask your friends where they are. With Tehula, your friend does not need to have the app installed, they do not even need to have an iPhone either. As long as they have a device (iPhone, iPad, Android phone, etc.) with an internet connexion and geolocation capabilities you are good to go.

What if the recipient does not have a GPS on his device ?

In that case, the web app lets them inform you that they have an incompatible device. Anyway, since you have sent them a regular text message, they can still send you an answer, in the old fashioned way.

What about privacy ?

We take privacy issues very seriously. This is why Tehula acts as a courier between your friend and yourself. As soon as we have transmitted your friend's location back to you, all data relative to this particular location request is deleted from our server.

Our iPhone app lets you create a location request in three easy steps.
You first select a friend in your contact list…
… then choose the phone number to send the request to …
and send a regular text message with the unique link we provide.
As soon as they reply, you are notified…
… and Tehula displays their location on a map.

See how fast & easy that was ?

What others say about Tehula

In fact, the idea is so simple, firing off a URL in a text message to check a phone’s location through its browser, that you’ll wonder why more apps haven’t built this functionality into their core.
Neither skeuomorphic nor creepy, this simple location-sharing app shows foursquare how it’s done.
Tehula is brand new in the Apple App Store, and I've got to say, I haven't been so excited about an app in a long time.
