iPhone App of the Week: Find My Friends

Tech Tricks

Tech TricksThere are plenty of useful new features in the new iOS 5 software, but one of the best isn’t even part of the software itself – it’s a new app from Apple.


The Find My Friends app allows users to share contact information with each other, which then reveals their location.


You’ll be able to track all of your friends with their permission, and see where they are. While this feature will be marketed heavily towards parents with children using iPhones, it’s great for casual use as well, such as giving directions to a lost colleague, or finding out whether your employees are on the road, at a meeting, or neither.


The app works on all iOS devices, and is completely free. If you have friends who all use iPhones, it’s definitely worth checking out.
