It would only show the history of my iPad and not my iPhone. Neither backup is encrypted so I'm not sure why it was having a problem. It looks interesting, but it's hardly worth the sensationalism that it's currently receiving.

I assume the interest is because this sort of record could be a potential gold mine for law enforcement, stalkers, litigation, someone evil who finds your phone on the street, and so on.

I just assumed that it was Yet Another Location Tracking App.
