Will FOMO Sonar drain my battery?

While we do use your GPS and location services, we have worked hard to make sure that the battery drain is in line with the normal use of those services while the app is in use. While the app is running in the background, FOMO Sonar has a very minimal effect on your battery life.

There is also a Power Button located in the lower left corner of the Sonar screen. You can turn location services connected to the app “on” and “off” using this button. When clicked "off", the user will not be abel to echo any pings. You will also not get any push notifications until you turn the Power Button back to "on”.

I have a technical problem or support issue I need resolved, who do I email?

The best way to get in touch with us is to email info@fomomedia.com

How much is your app?
