I had the App “Find my friend” on my phone for a long time, but I did not use it until recently. All incidences were quite interesting. I thought I should share with everyone.
First incidence: found family members at a busy outdoor event
It was a busy event. My husband and I went to different directions. He called me on my cell, of course. However, it was hard to tell where each of us was, relative to each other. He turned on Find My Friend. Being able to see my location relative to his on the map, he was able to move to the right direction to find me. It turned out, we were not that far away from each other at all. However, without the app, it may take us a little longer to find each other.
With this incidence, I know I will definitely keep this app on for our next Disney vacation!
Second incidence: Find my “lost” phone
I am getting very forgetful lately. :-) Not a good thing, I know. The other day, I could not find my phone, and I could not remember where I put it. I checked the car, walked through the house, … Luckily, I still have my iPAD. I opened the Find My Friend app – I saw my phone on the map – it was in the house! A big relieve …
Third incidence: found out where I am !!
I was driving to one place. It was my first time going there. I thought I was on the right street, but the driving took longer than I thought. I was concerned… and of course, I called my husband. Instead of asking me where I was (he knew I would not be able to tell him, if I knew, why am I calling him? ), he turned on the Find My Friend app, saw where I was, and told me keep driving and I should see the place in about half miles. How cool is that!
After this incidence, I thought about some other potential places this app could be helpful: if you child need go out at night or drive far away, have him/her take an iPhone/iPod/iPAD with Find My Friend installed and turned on. You will be able to check where he/she is at every second.
I hope with my interesting experience of this Find My Friend app, you are convinced to have it on all your iDevices – iPhone, iPod, iPAD. It is free.
Other features this app has:

- You decide if you want to share your location with a friend. If I want to see your location, I have to get your permission by sending you an email. I won’t see your location till you accept my request.
