Find My Friends review
Find My Friends is a free app that allows you to locate friends and family. Just invite them to share locations by choosing from your contacts or entering their email addresses.
Find My Friends lets you follow the locations immediately after your friends accepted your invitation. You can get a request as well, allowing your friends to know where you are. If you want to hide your location, you can do it at any time with a single switch.
Plus, you can set up location-based alerts that notify you when a friend arrives at the airport, your kid leaves school, or a family member arrives home safely. Also, you can notify your friends about any changes in your location.
For better location accuracy and notification performance, make sure
WiFi or 3G/4G connection is enabled on your device.
Overall, using Find My Friends, you can:
- Easily locate friends and family;
- Receive location-based notifications;
- Adjust privacy settings;
- Share your location temporarily or permanently;
- Use an email address or phone number to share your location and invite friends to share back.
Find My Friends has a minimalistic design that allows you easily navigate the menu and find all the features you need. The interface is intuitive, and colors are bright and appealing.
Once installed on your phone, Find My Friends becomes the ideal friend locator app which helps you stay connected with the people who matter most. Each friend appears as a personal icon on the app’s map so that you will know exactly where they are in real time. Now you don’t have to worry after a night out as you will know when each member of your squad arrives home safely.
If you have a friend who is constantly late or frequently gets lost, you can both track and help him. The app tell you where your friend is located and provides navigation assistance.
Find My Friends also serves as an efficient group communicator and outing planner. Say you are going camping with a group of friends. Have them install the app prior to the trip and coordinate trip details like hiking trails, supplies, sights to see and meeting time and place. With the prep work done in advance, you will enjoy the great outdoors without having your nose buried in a travel app or a guidebook.
You can even locate friends who don’t have a smartphone. Just send them an invite via text and the app will find them using cell phone tower triangulation.
