Tracking as in if you guys lose the phone and want to track it real time?

Best tracking IMO is Cerberus.

You can locate and track a device, have it take pictures and email it to you on wrong code, disable alarm, or just when you choose to make it do so, send an alarm to the phone to see if you can locate it (or to trick someone into having their picture taken by sending something like "get car from mechanic"), wipe the device, hide from app drawer. If you're rooted you can even make it so cerberus can survive a factory reset.

You can find it on GPS, 3 heads as the logo, called cerberus anti theft.

Actually you can use one thing for every phone. Make a google account and put it in every phone you want to track. Then login to your google account at google.com. Then go to https://play.google.com/store from there click on the settings icon and click on android device manager. From there you can pick any device you want to track down as long as the account is on the device it can find it for you. Just so long as location is turned on you will find whatever device you are looking for. Hope this helps you.

Of course this assumes "every" phone is not an iPhone. It may work for the OP as it appears they both have Droid Maxx phones, but Android Device Manager will only work on android devices, just as Find My iPhone will only work on iPhones. Life360 is a cross platform app and will work on both for those who have more than 1 type of device on their account.Smiley Happy
