Find My Friends
Discover where your friends are with Find My Friends

There are numerous uses for location aware apps, such as tagging photos and triggering reminders, but Find My Friends makes it possible to find out where your friends are currently located. The app enables you to send a request to your friends, and providing they also have the app installed, they will be able to share their location with you.

You can view the location of your friends that have chosen to share their information on a map and this data can be used in a variety of ways. if you are planning on meeting up with people in an unknown location, the app can be used to keep track of where you are in relation to each other. The app is even able to provide directions to make it easier to meet up.

Parents may well be interested in using the app to keep an eye on where their children are, but this will involve convincing them to share their location. For anyone concerned about the privacy implications of broadcasting their location, there are simple options available that enables you to control what is shared, to whom, and when.

In order to make use of Find My Friends you need to be using an iPhone, iPod or iPad running iOS 5, as well as having an iCloud account. If you do not already have an iCloud account, you have the option of creating one from within the app.

Verdict:

An interesting use of location awareness that can be used for fun or peace of mind.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
