We're entering the home stretch with our 12 Days of Hidden Gems series. We've covered a broad range of subjects including fitness accessories that work well with Windows Phone and Windows 8.1, the connected home, some great travel apps, cameras for capturing all of life's adventures and games to help pass the time. You can catch up on all of the articles to date on our Hidden Gems page.

Today is the 9th day and we're checking out a fantastic app for staying in touch with family and friends. Life360 keeps millions of families and close friends connected, no matter what chaos life throws their way.
