ZUVOLO is the first app to finally bring Location Sharing and Social Networking together to deliver a fun experience for all your friends, family and work colleagues. We are continually working on bringing you more new and improved features that will make your life easier, with all the control and privacy that you need. When can I use ZUVOLO? For sports e.g. Cycling and hiking The app has been extensively tested with groups of cyclists. Whether you are a weekend warrior meeting your friends and heading for your favourite coffee stop, or on a big weekend sportive, or touring in another country, ZUVOLO has been tested in the mountains and on the flats, between cities and towns, and it works perfectly. It will work equally well with any sporting activity! Friends & Family Driving in your car, taking the train, hopping on the bus, or walking into town, with real-time Location Sharing all your friends and family will know exactly where you are and where and when to meet. Work & Business Set a meeting location and show your work colleagues that you are on your way. If you’re stuck in traffic, delayed by public transport, or making good time, everyone will be kept up to date and know when to expect you. Missed Anything? Probably! Use ZUVOLO at festivals to see where your friends are, or to find your tent. Use ZUVOLO for letting friends and family know that you’re safe and well. Use ZUVOLO for any activity you like.

We want to make this app work for you. Don’t hold back – give it to us straight. Side Note Like any real time Location Sharing app, continued use of the app will use up battery power. Older phones have less battery capacity than newer phones. Running the app with the screen off and the device locked can save battery power. We have worked hard to ensure that the app makes the best use of battery power. Newer iPhones will of course last longer than older phones with older batteries. We have managed to run the app successfully for almost a full day – probably more than most people would tend to use it for.
