What's New

A critical bug has been fixed where the “Location Engine” would sometimes stop updating the current location for certain users. Battery life should improve with this version.

A new ‘Route Map View' feature has been added that will track all members current route from the last time the member was stationary. The route map is depicted with pins showing direction, speed, and time for the entire route. Press a route pin then press the “Man Icon” to see the Street View of the route location. You can visually follow along the route of the member. The annotation of the route's top speed is displayed automatically. A ‘Hiking Display’ or a ‘Street Display’ can be shown. This route data history was taken in near real-time for the group’s information.

Other minor bug fixes.

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.
