Apple has released Find My Friends app for iOS that lets you locate your family and friends right from you iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Find My Friends was unveiled at Apple’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” last week.
Find My Friends allows you to easily locate your friends and family from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Install this free app on your iOS 5 device and sign in with the Apple ID you use with iCloud. Adding a friend is easy – just send a request to see their location. Once your friend accepts using the Find My Friends app, you will then be able to see that friend’s location on a list or on a map.
Find My Friends Features
- Easily locate friends and family
- Temporary sharing option
- Simple privacy controls
- Parental restrictions
- Free for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
Find My Friends app integrates with the Maps and Contacts app in iOS 5. It runs on iCloud to let users share their location with friends and also seeing the location of other friends.
Your friends mark the spot.
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. And since Find My Friends works with Contacts and Maps, you can do things like find the quickest route to a surprise party — and avoid running into the birthday girl — all at once.
Friends for a day.
With Find My Friends, you can choose to temporarily share your location with a group of people. It’s perfect for a weekend camping trip or a day at the amusement park. Share locations for a couple of hours — or a couple of weeks. When the trip is over, the sharing ends, too.
Seek (and hide).
With Find My Friends, you make the rules. A notification appears when you get a new friend request. If you give your friends permission, they can see you. Want a little privacy? Go off the grid with the flip of a switch.
Keep them safe.
Parental restrictions help you manage how your children use Find My Friends. Controls are quick and easy to set up and require a password to override your settings. That way your kids can have fun — and you can make sure they stay safe.

English, Japanese, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Korean, Chinese, Russian, Polish, Turkish, Ukrainian, Arabic, Croatian, Czech, Greek, Hebrew, Romanian, Slovak, Thai, Indonesian, Malay, Catalan, Hungarian, Vietnamese
