Apple Releases Find My Friends App for Users

Just before the rollout of iOS 5, Apple has unveiled Find My Friends, a new app for sharing your whereabouts that works similarly to Glympse.

This app allows you to display your location on a map to facilitate meet-ups with friends, or alternatively, to locate them easily.

For those who prioritize their privacy, the app provides flexible sharing options.

You can choose to share your location all the time or only for specific occasions, such as when you’re dining out and want company.
