I love the extreme, sporadic examples such as these.

(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?)
Lets not compare the novelty implications of electricity to a "find your friend" app. Just... no...

Your bullet pointed "advantages" are exactly why Razeus won't use it.

I'm a vegetarian as well and I'd rather have a bloody rare steak theme than this horrific faux leather abomination.
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.

Wishing iOS would allow auto locator app!

We developed a simple text auto reply locator but iOS won't allow the auto reply interface? WhereU-at.com

Now I have to download this...

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

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.

Not sure if serious...or sarcasm.

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!

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?
