    Is there an app I can have that can help me find another iphone user. Say, we're in the park or the mall, can it tell me walk 100 feet north, turn left, etc?

    Hmm, I'm not sure if an App like this would exist because it kind breaches an invasion of privacy. It would have to require both sides to download the app, and then enable some sort of tracker.

    Yes, thats true. I should have mentioned that I assumed that both parties would need the app and would have to agree to its usage.

    On the other hand......

    Probably more money than your willing to spend, but NAVIGON allows you to send your current position to another user and have them navigate to you or vise versa. Obviously, it requires that you both have the app.

    Built-in Map app

    The built-in maps application kind of has this feature. Load it up, tap the pulsing blue dot when it gets a fix. A banner should pop up saying "Current Location". Tap the arrow at the end of the banner, and on the new screen there is a button to "Share Location". You can send your location by MMS or email. It will be sent as a vCard file with a URL to the location in Google Maps, which on the iPhone will load up in the Maps app.

    Of course, if you're in a mall or something you might not be able to get an accurate GPS fix.

    If you want to specify a location instead, you can drop a pin and then follow the directions above with the pin.

    No there is an app like that. Only works in America though can't think of the name of it. Was one of the first apps out with the app store launch.
