WhereWuz turns your phone into your own personal location history tool!What if your phone could show you on a map exactly where you were at any specific time in the past? What if you could also see the exact path that you took between any given…..

This ap is so awesome. I went to the mall today with my son and was not paying attention when i parked...too busy taking on the phone. When it was time to leave, I realized I was not sure where I parked and started
Heading down a couple of different
Isles. My 7 year old was about to be late for his piano lesson and I was gettin worried. I remembered that I had installed this thing and decided to give it a try. OMG. I was at my car in 3 minutes and on my way to the lesson. I can't believe how turned around I had gotten. We would have missed it! This thing was a lifesaver for my ditzy moment. I am going to install it next on my older son's phone. He's always heading over to " his friends" house to study, but I think he mostly goes to his girlfriend's house which he is not supposed to be doing during the school week. Such a struggle. With this i installed I can see when he is really telling the truth and when he is not and then talk to him about it. I just love that this records all this and I can ck it. So cool. Thank you where wuz! I now know where I wuz and will soon know where my kiddo wuz too!
Surprising, Useful, Helpful
Wonderful idea, well executed, some simple, minor flaws.
Flaws: Smooth GPS system but the course outlined in the map following the car's movements are often "running into a tree" or veering far off of the road.
great, but battery drain limits use

The app does what it claims: it offers the extremely useful ability to pick a spot on the map and see when you were last there or pick a time interval and be able to visually trace your path by freely moving a time slider forwards or backwards, all this and it presents the data wonderfully in interactive google style maps.
The downside, it drains your battery like crazy, because it's always on, using the power hungry gps chip (unless you manually disable tracking).
I just hope the developer plans to make the gps usage smarter so it consumes less power. I expect they will, but I hope they can solve the problem soon. Until they do, I will only turn on tracking specifically when I want to record my location data. Of course it would be better to be able to have it on all the time so you don't run the risk of forgetting to turn it on when you wanted to.
Note on operation: when you hit the clear all points button, all the position data clears from the map, but when you hit the import button, you retrieve all your past data. So, it does not appear that 'clear all' actually destroys data, it just clears the map and clears out the data in the app until you import all your data again.
Comment: the clear all points should probably be a button in the map view rather than the prefs, since the latter implies you are destroying data, while the former implies it's just clearing the current map view of points, which is the actual action of the button. Also, it's annoying that when you hit Clear, it not only clears the map, but clears data, so you can't do any new searches until you reload all your data, which can take a while. Why don't you just keep the data in memory, and just clear the map?
Question to developer (please include answer in app description if possible): a HUGE concern to address is data security, so what does this app do to make sure the location data is secure? Also, related to that, where is the data imported from when you hit import button? Is it stored locally, or from a remote server? I noticed that you cannot import or search any location data when phone is in airplane mode (3G and wifi disable). The "import" term implies it's stored remotely, which makes me nervous, and I don't want my location data stored on a server (unless I specifically choose to, and even then I would want to know if the data security measures are adequate. At least let the user choose.).
Lastly, a feature request: I would like the ability to permanently delete location data for a specified time interval.
It would also be nice to be able to store backups of location data to a pc (either via iTunes, or via emailing a file which could later be imported to the phone)
