My boss wants me to install a gps app on her kids iphones so that she can know where they are. Does anyone have any recommendations for the best app?

Well that would be what she is looking for, but she does not want to jail break the phones. Are there any apps that "run silently" this without jailbreaking?

Just use the iPhone/iPad tracking utility already build in.

https://www.icloud.com/

You can view where it is silently or send a message to the phone.

Not necessary. All she has to do is to use the same credentials (email, password) when setting up the app

-on the kids iPhones
go to settings
go to icloud
sign in with an apple ID ( same apple ID for all kids iPhones)
make sure that find my iPhone is toggled on

    -your boss can either track them from the computer by going to www.icloud.com and sign in with the same apple ID and password
or download this app  find my iPhone https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/find-my-iphone/id376101648?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D2 on her iPhone
 and sign in with the apple ID

if every kid has a Different apple ID then she has to use multiple browsers for each kid
lets say that she has 4 kids
first kid: www.icloud.com from google chrome
2nd kid: ================= internet explorer :S
3rd kid : ================= find my iPhone app on her iPhone etc...

The best app to track any apple device is, by far, find my iPhone. As long as the kids have their location services on, then you can track any of their apple devices by logging onto find my iPhone online. If he kids have multiple apple id's then you can keep multiple windows open,  with one window assigned to one child.
