Cell Phone Tracker, idiot tracker ?

Am I the only one who became addicted to browse all the 1-star reviews of this app ?

(Appstore Link)

Seriously, the app is #9 in the France top paid, with 895 comments, and nearly all of them saying "Refund !!1! It doesn't work !!"

To be sure that it wasn't a translation problem, I browsed the web about english version, and reactions were the same !
I even read someone telling "I tried to localize my dad who is in Canary isles, but it only showed my position !! Refund !!1! Update !1!1"

I'm not cynical by nature, but here, it's just hilarious ...
What the app is really doing is clearly stated in the description, plus some reviewers are even explaining the trick a second time, but majority of people keep missing the point and go all "REFUND !!1 SCAM !!$" .

This app is outstanding for pointing out how people just don't pay attention to each other, to the point where some social analysts would be fascinated.

I think I'm gonna buy it. lol

Man, it even SAYS "tracks YOUR position but you're with them so they'll think it's their position"

Idiot tracker indeed, lol!
