This awesome app created by Apple themselves helps you find your friends. The Find My Friends app gives you access to your friends locations who are using the enabled Find My Friends app on their iOS run device. Friends can ask to follow you and you can reciprocate the same way. Its a really fun way to track each other and can be extremely helpful in some circumstances where you want to track where your child is. Simply put an iPhone inside their backpack and turn this handy app on and you’ve got yourself a GPS locator. There are countless uses other then its original form and the best part is its completely FREE!
Find My Friends allows you to easily locate friends and family using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Just install this free app and sign in with the Apple ID you use with iCloud. Adding a friend is easy — just choose from your contacts or provide an email address to send an invitation. When your friend accepts your invitation using the Find My Friends app on their device, you can start following their location. Your friends can request to follow your location the same way.
If you prefer, you can use temporary sharing to share locations with a group of friends for a specific period of time, such as an evening or a long weekend. If at any time you don’t want to be followed, you can hide your location with a single switch.
Find My Friends also lets you set up location-based alerts that can notify you automatically when a friend arrives at the airport, a child leaves school, or a family member arrives home safely. You can notify friends about your current location or changes to your location at any time.
Find My Friends works even when the app is in the background (a passcode lock on your device is required) and has been optimized to avoid draining your battery.
