Apple has updated its 'Find My Friends (http://www.apple.com/icloud/features/find-my-friends.html)' location notification app. The small update makes it slightly more streamlined to search for and set location-based notifications.

The Next Web has more information (http://thenextweb.com/apple/2013/03/28/apple-updates-find-my-friends-with-more-accurate-location-based-alert-setup-process/) about what has changed specifically:
The new interface for setting up those alerts has been tweaked to let you set the exact distance threshold from a location. This lets you fine-tune the sensitivity of an alert for, say, two different buildings on a campus. If you just wanted to know when someone is 'home', the older process with a 'fixed' zone was fine, but if you were looking to get notices when someone gets into a neighborhood, it was pretty much impossible.http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2013/03/fmfnewandold.jpgLeft: Old UI, Right: New UI
Find My Friends is a free download (http://appshopper.com/social-networking/find-my-friends) from the App Store. [Direct Link (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id466122094?mt=8)]

Great update! You can now drop a pin on a custom location instead of using a street address. You can also set a custom radius.

I hope the Reminders app gets this functionality soon for location-based alert triggers.

People think the whole app idea is just creepy, which is understandable. I think it's pretty useful though!

I hate to pin this one on lack of life experience, but here we go:
1. When you and your wife/husband/fiance lives separately on the east/west coast due to work. It's nice to know if they have arrived at work or arrived at home safely without calling them all the time.

2. When you have worrying parents who have kids living or working for long period of time overseas.

3. When you have teenagers who is bad at telling you when they are home.

4. When you have active older parents who you want to keep track of, to make sure they are where they are suppose to be. Instead of calling them when you are at work you can simply turn the apps on and check on them.

Bottom line, don't fight things for the sake of fighting things. Everything has its disadvantage, as well as it's advantage.

They've worked just fine for me. They only work once though, so if I say "notify me when my wife leaves the office" it's only going to notify me the first time and then I have to set the notification up again. It won't notify you every time.

Wow...you're saying I have lack of life experience now? Interesting theory you have on someone you don't know.

1) sounds silly. my wife is grown. I can call, text and email to see how's she's doing.

2) email. why would I need an app to see where they are. I know where they are. If I'm worried, I call or email.

3) I have a teenage. I always know when he's home and leaves the house. My app for my home security system notifies me.

4) Why do I need to check on my active parents? They are active so obviously they have to go take of their own business. I can catch up with them with real conversation or dinner at the house.

Technology shouldn't be used to keep people on a leash. People should have their freedom without an app for me to "check on them" with. The whole premise of this app is just silly and creepy.

Change #3 to pre-teen and pretend you don't have a home security system. Now you'd have a good reason to use the app. Besides that one point, I understand, if not necessarily agree, with both sides of this argument.

Yes, the depiction of dead animal skin is disgusting to me, just as it would if the theme was "disembowled organs" or "murdered baby heads". 92 octane costs about $4.25/gallon in my world lately.

And nope, I don't use it, and none of my friends do; it's another failed social networking attempt by Apple. Surely, some people are though, or they wouldn't keep updating it...you'd think.

Nice, you can set the radius on the notifications now. That's helpful.

Why do you need to know where I am all the time?
Unless you're a celebrity, chances are no one cares about where you are. You could share your location with 10 people and after a while, none of them would care. If they did care, they would call/text you and ask (or, if you've shared the location with them, they can spare your 30 seconds and find out themselves).

People make a bigger deal out of this that in really is. It's as if you share your location with someone, and that person will drop everything they're doing, quit their job, stop eating and sleeping, and just start tracking your blue dot on a map 24/7 as if it's the most interesting TV series in the world.

How does family knowing where you are make you less free or put you on a leash?

My family obviously knows whether I'm home or not when they're home. With this, now they also know when they're not. No diff.

Or know if I'm still at work, so there's no rush cooking dinner... without bothering me if I'm still stuck in a meeting or something. Or close to home already, or not moving stuck in traffic, etc.

when i was little (which was only 23 years ago but god i sound old now) i left the house in the morning and came home whenever from school. nowadays people have to drop their kid of right in front of the school and if the kid shows up 1 minute too late after school all hell breaks loose!

Ya. That's a little too much info. A simple text, "I'm on my way" does it for me and my wife. I shouldn't have to check a yet another app for something so simple. But I can see your point as I see people are constantly checking their phone as if something significant is going to change from one minute to the next for every little thing it seems. This is the direction society is going - constant information coming at them, yet still not any more knowledgeable than they were before. The paradox.

This app is rubbish. The new design doesn't change the fact that it's too slow to find someone. The persons locations are way too slow to update or often can't even find my friends at all. I have run a test with two iPhone 5's both running the app and both of them could find the location of the other phone, both whilst on WiFi and the mobile service.

Everyone has different relationships with people close to them and different needs. I have my wife, children, siblings, etc. on find my friends and use it all the time. I don't use it because I am afraid something will happen, it is just helpful sometimes to know where people are. An example; I expected my wife to be home at a certain time and she hasn't shown, so I check to see where she is. Turns out she is at Walmart, so I text her to buy me some cereal while she is there.

Where she works, she is not allowed to use her phone during work (day care center). I check to see if she is still at work because she won't answer my text if she is. Maybe that seems like I'm controlling or not trusting, but she can see where I am if she needs to, and for us it isn't an issue. And it's not like I can't live without it, but it can be very convenient to know where people are without interrupting them. Plus, if I didn't want them to know where I was, I would just turn it off.

Maybe it doesn't work for everyone but for us it is an often used app.

It's not about knowing where you are all the time, it's about knowing where you are some of the time.

For me and my family and close friends it's insanely useful. We travel quite a bit and this app really helps to coordinate trips without having to text someone where they are.

I also use it regularly when my wife is coming home from work. She gets off late and I need to know when to start dinner so that it's ready when she gets home.

Also, you have the ability to hide your location.

If you don't have a use for apps like this don't use them. Simple as that. Seriously, the comments in this thread are just embarrassing.

It's not an "ethical dilemma", I just find it -- or what it represents -- offensive. Surprising that mostly-vegan Steve approved this stuff, but then again he didn't always have consistent viewpoints.


Unless you're a celebrity, chances are no one cares about where you are.

Google and other companies do. They can build up a better advertising profile if they know where you go all the time. You're the product, after all, and they want to know as much about their products as they can.

I think this app does have some legit use cases, as evidenced by people in this thread using it to keep track of family. I think that family thing is where the usefulness lies. But for friends? Nah, even BFFs need their privacy from each other. This app should really be re-branded or rolled into another service.

By taking my reasoning and extending it to extreme is not a good way to look at this. In that case, taking your argument, I can say the same thing about electricity or cellphone. I'm sure when those novelty first come into existence people are saying the same thing you are, but as they became more integral part of our lives eventually the argument subsided. (e.g., I can say the same about cellphone, what is the need of the cellphone? People can't just stick to landline, and wait to make phone calls when they get home, or get to a pay phone?)

Generation gap? My parents are in their early 60s, and they like this app very much. It put my Mother's mind at ease when she can't get to my sister, either because my sister has the phone on silent or simply don't wake up to the ring. Also, calling is not always the best idea, given the time difference (overseas). And the reverse is true as well.

You just made my point, so it seems you missed it entirely.

The gap I was pointing to was in the other direction.

Everyone understands perfectly well the sense of security this offers you personally and that's fine.

Perhaps you could be as open minded about how micromanaged and overzealous that seems to others who don't require or desire that same level of detail to feel at ease and comfortable?

What you find convenient others find excessive. *shrugs* To each their own.

I used this app with the family on a recent vacation. Since we all come from different cities, in different states, it was easy to see where everyone was in route to our destination; without having to text everyone and wait for responses.

It also came in pretty handy during the trip when we would split up to do our own things but would meet up for dinner.

Am I the only one who LOVES the design of this app? The leather makes it feel premium, like I'm using an expensive quality product that can only be found on iOS. It contrasts strongly to the cheap looking Android apps.

Not sure if serious...or sarcasm.

Just to make the vegetarian PETA thumpers made about the digital leather. One more download = one more animal dead. Rejoice meat eaters!

Ah, the Internet, bastion of tolerance and respect for other's opinions. No skin off my back brother, or any animal's for that matter. Download that hideous app as much as you want.

P.S. -- I hate PETA.

For me the color reminds me cat poop.

I created a nice leather sofa app and sat on it. I watched a movie on a nice tv app on my iPad.

Now my phone is broken, I have back pain and my arms are sore from holding the pad... Try to do this on Android!

OMG this is exactly whats wrong with society today. how did people survive for centuries without those apps?


I know, it's just like people who own multiple personal computers, a smart phone, tablet and a streaming media device! People survived for centuries without all those things! We don't need them.

Or maybe you can accept the fact that you're under no obligation to use or like the app while recognizing that a minority of people may find it functional. Shocking isn't it?
