COMPLETE TUTORIAL @ www.find-U.net ….(installed on the app)
===

Reviewer: "It’s all pretty detailed, keeping track of everything from the speed, heading, and time your friend is traveling (even a brisk walk) – was well as how long they’ve been there and where they were previously."

Reviewer: “…The tutorial is also top-notch. 5 stars for being the first to deliver as promised”

Reviewer: “…even automatically turns the services off when it detects that you are no longer moving and are stationary….”

Reviewer: “There are several apps out there that can do this, but find-U was the only one that wasn’t deadly to my battery (3GS).”

Each member installs the app on their device (SAME Group Name)

find-U only runs on the iPhone 4 and 3GS running OS 4+ and other devices running 4.2+. This program uses the phone carrier's data service.
