Find My Friends

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 pass-code lock on your device is required) and has been optimized to avoid draining your battery.

FEATURES

• Easily locate friends and family
• Temporary sharing option
• Location-based notifications
• Simple privacy controls

Socialtape

Connnect to Socialtape with your Faceboook account and watch all videos from your wall as a continuous stream.

TechCrunch:
“The way we consume video is different from most other other content. Watching single video takes more time than, say, clicking on the image or scanning a shared article. And watching videos in the office can be problematic… However, Socialtape may show a new way forward. After trying it I found there was three hours of content shared in my social video stream!”
