T-Mobile USA today announced the availability of FamilyWhere Check In, a new free service that lets members of family plans provide SMS-based location updates to others on the plan. Users can check in to specific locations and send an SMS with a map link embedded in the message. That map link can be viewed in any web browser so parents can see the whereabouts of their children. The application offers on-demand access to all the devices in a family plan; supports a wide range of devices (even ones with no GPS); and supports automatic alerts that are sent when family members stray from where they are supposed to be. The service uses SMS and normal messaging charges will apply, but there is no monthly fee to use it. FamilyWhere Locate is a richer service that provides a real-time view of family devices and better tracking abilities, but costs $9.99 per month. Family Where Check In is a free download from the Android Market.
