Launched to coincide with iOS5 due to its reliance on such features comes Find My Friends, an app that allows users to easily find their friends and family through their iOS devices. Yup, it’s a jealous boyfriend/girlfriend’s idea of heaven! But it’s also a pretty cool idea for everything from meeting up with friends to simply checking that the kids got home safely from school.
Using an Apple ID that’s used with iCloud, users can add a friend then simply send a request to see their location. Users can then always see on a map or via a list exactly where that person is.
Privacy controls and parental restrictions are in there for the safety conscious, and there’s also the option to temporarily share information with a group of friends. Everything is encased in an attractive and easy to use format, just as we’ve come to expect from Apple products.
It’s out now and is free and universal to all iOS5 users. Don’t forget to sign up to an iCloud account too!
