Find My Friends: Application description
Find My Friends is a premier location-sharing app that helps you:
• Find your friends on a map
• Share your location with your friends
• Chat with friends
• Get info -- on ETA, exact location, etc.
• Share news -- about a great new restaurant opening, store sale, etc.
• Get directions
Whether you’re shopping for a new outfit, camping in the great outdoors or enroute to a party, the Find My Friends GPS functionality makes it easy to locate your friends in real-time.
Real-time location sharing is important!
Consider two scenarios: Will your habitually late friend make it to the movie on time? Use Find My Friends to pinpoint his/her location and estimated arrival time, so you can plan accordingly. Is your directionally challenged friend lost (again)? Find My Friends is a lifesaver. It pinpoints your missing friend’s location and provides navigational help (i.e., directions) so you can guide them to their destination.
Once installed on your phone, Find My Friends helps you communicate, locate and stay connected with the people who matter most. Each friend will appear as their own personal icon on the app’s map, so you’ll know where they are located in real time. With Find My Friends, you can sleep easy after a night out, knowing when each member of your posse arrives home safely.
Efficient Group Communicator
Save time and headaches, by making Find My Friends your group outing planner. Here’s how: Say you’re going camping with a group of friends. Have them install Find My Friends on their mobile phones prior to the trip. Now you can all chat and coordinate trip details such as supplies/shopping list duties, suggested hiking trails, sights to see and meeting time/place. With the prep work done in advance, you’ll enjoy the great outdoors more without having your nose buried in a guidebook or travel app. Find My Friends also locates errant campers enroute to the meeting point and uses GPS sharing technology to estimate their arrival time. If a friend is lost, simply note the location of their icon on the app’s map and direct them to the meeting point. Post trip, use Find My Friends to make sure all arrived home and when you’re ready, to plan your next adventure!
Friend Finder (and Friendship Saver!)
Find My Friends works with iPhones, Androids, Blackberrys and even feature phones. Just send non-smart phone users an invite via text. Once they reply with a “yes” their icon will appear on the app’s map. Find My Friends uses cell phone tower triangulation to find friends and makes location sharing easy.
Location Sharing Made Easy
Find a great new restaurant? Is a favorite shop having a sale? This app lets you share your location and learn where your friends are shopping, dining or dancing.
