  • Sounds pretty good. Especially the checking in from the App part
  • About time!!!!!! This is the app I have missed the most from my old iPhone, now just need the WSJ and AAA Roadside service to launch Android apps. :)
  • This has been out for 2 weeks.
  • AAA roadside assistance has a mobile site that is supposed to read your gps signal and request assistance. I tried it. The gps location piece works and I opened a request for assistance. I then called 15 minutes later and they had no record of my request. FAIL!
