    I will say that "TRACK" is probably the same thing as FOLLOW ME mode :)

    Track in Litchi is not the same as follow me. Track uses a video lock algorithm to "visually" track a moving subject.
    Follow me uses the RC as the "Lock point". Not sure if it even works with a Standard. Track requires a high end device to work properly. Just throwing that out.

    Really strange, Follow Me has been there since a very early release. Is GPS turned on on your mobile device? This is necessary for follow me to work.

    I wonder if it's an Android / Apple issue, I checked Litchi's site and it made no mention of it not being there for Apple devices.

    Pair your mobile device with another mobile device running Litchi, and your DJI Phantom 3 or Inspire 1 will be able to follow you without having to carry the remote controller around!

    True but Magic Leash isn't required for Follow Me to work if using it on the phone / tablet attached the the RC. I wonder if any other IOS users are having this same issue.

    Seems its a platform difference. Why would android and ios be different?
    I have messaged the developer to get some clarification on this matter.
