With apps such as Foursquare and other check in type services being so popular, it is little wonder that Apple haven’t brought something similar out much sooner, but never the less, here is the Apple version of a check in service! They are calling it the “Find My Friends” app and it does just that using a Google map the user can find exactly where their pals are.
These are the details of the Apple “Find My Friends” App;
Meet up with friends at an outdoor concert. Keep track of the family during a day on the ski slopes. Or see when your out-of-town guest has finally made it past baggage claim. The Find My Friends app is a great way to share your location with people who are important to you.* Friends who share their location with you appear on a map so you can quickly see where they are and what they’re up to.
This app is due to be released on or around the 12th October
