Wanted: Owntracks clients as easy as Slack

Right now its tricky for groups of cyclists to coordinate.  It's very easy to get split,  and hard to meet a group mid ride.

Owntracks solves a lot of this;  but setting up your own mqtt broker is tricky.  Some hosted options exist,  but then configuring is tricky for non tech users - remote config/config import helps alot; but its not perfect.

Secondly,  I have multiple groups I want to share my location with for different purposes.

I really wish the owntracks clients were as easy as the slack mobile clients - easy team swapping,  easy signin.
