• Find My Friends has been updated with an all new design for iOS 7.
10/25/2013 | Version : 2.1.1 | Size : 19.3 MB

• New UI to search for and set location-based notifications (requires iOS 6.1 or later)
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 passcode lock on your device is required) and has been optimized to avoid draining your battery.
• Easily locate friends and family
• Temporary sharing option
• Location-based notifications
• Simple privacy controls
• Parental restrictions
• Free for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Comments and Ratings for Find My Friends
Good app (3.0)

3/5 By Dominic S
It's a good app but doesn't always work correctly. One day it will notify me when someone left their last location and another day it won't give any notification. Refresh button doesn't always work either.

Please bring back the "EVERYWHERE" button and give the option to choose the icon for our friends, including their name in a text box as in the older version!!!

My mom is in beginning stages of dementia. We got her a smart phone and added find friends so we would know where she was at all times. It worked the first day but now when I try to locate her it tells me location not available. Yes her location is turned on and it was working fine. I have 5 people on and they all work fine, just not my moms. Any suggestions?
Terrible upgrade (3.0)

Why? Upgrades are supposed to make things better. This new version is horrible. Can't even get an address. Not sure what the intentions were, but they are NOT an improvement at all.

This is an awesome app if it would refresh, and if it could be more accurate. How come I can't see my reviews? Is it because I want to only give it 1 star? 8-15-14

I'm in the same room as my husband and it shows him located two subdivisions away. Not very good for jealous, suspicious spouses. Not that I am one, just saying.
Good concept, terrible UI design (3.0)

If you don’t mind the appearance of the app, then it will probably work for you. I find the color scheme and lack of contrast too annoying. It really is ugly. This was a go-to app for me and the wife, now it is a last-resort. I’ll call first. “Where are you, honey?"
Rarely works (3.0)

Used to work well. Seldom works now and when it does, it's frequently inaccurate. Yet another "once great app" that has turned to junk. Don't waste time downloading if working consistently or accuracy are important.
Update STINKS (3.0)

Forced me to update and now it can't locate half my friend. Really? Yesterday--it worked quite well. Today--it stinks!! Come on, Apple!
Blinking Map... (3.0)
8/13/2014 8:24:00 PM
1/5 By Grigio N
Newest version (which I was forced to update as FMF blocked previous version from loading) is unusable due to annoying maps that continually blink. Why take a product and make it worse?
Horrible and just plain creepy (3.0)
8/13/2014 1:45:00 PM
1/5 By ZombieKilla1233
This app is horrible. Totally creepy. My now ex girlfriend downloaded this stupid app on my phone when I was working out. When I found it, I deleted it immediately. There's a reason why people break up and it's because of this creepy stalker app.
Ok app (3.0)

What if you have friends who don't have an Apple product? Then how do they let you know where they are, if they want you to know?
Love it but it's been really slow (3.0)

I don't know what the deal is, but lately my locator has been taking forever or not locating at all. It might be the internet around me, but I think it might also be the app. Can someone check this out please?
No trabaja apropiadamente. (3.0)
8/9/2014 8:39:00 PM
2/5 By Parguera
No esta trabajando como antes, esta dando el mismo problema del año pasado el cual no avisa el llegar o salir de un lugar y no tiene buena precisión. Yo utilizo esta aplicación con mis hijos, los monitoreo cuando van a la escuela, salen, van a las tutorías y casa de familiares. Para mi esta aplicación es muy buena e importante me gustaría que arreglaran el error lo más pronto posible. Gracias

Used to work great. Doesn't locate friends at all anymore. Why? Very frustrating.

Please add a feature where you are notified when a contact is within a specified radius of your location rather than when they "arrive".

It's great when it works but most the time you have to refresh and restart the app to even get to the right city.
No notifications. (3.0)

Is there an app out there like this one that actually works with the notifications? I would buy it and delete this one. Please post if you know of one. Thanks!

Ever since the last update the alerts no longer work. I even deleted and reinstalled the app. Background refresh, notifications, and location services are properly setup. No luck.
Some genius needs to be fired.
Since last update… (3.0)

2/5 By Pack Bowl
Since the last update the app is not as accurate as it use to be. And the app will also crash upon opening and cause my iPhone / iPad to enter reset mode. What the hell is up with that?!!!
Very annoying!!! Please fix!!!
Use to be 5 stars.
Notifications not working!! (3.0)

When do you plan the next update to fix the non-functioning notifications ?? Everyone is complaining about this issue!
It's been down since earlier this year apparently?!!
Please fix! Thank you in advance!

Download the app (which required my password). Go to login and type in the exact same password about a dozen times and I can't get in. Reset my password through Apple and the around app still doesn't recognize it. Amazing.

I just got the app and it keeps logging me out and making me put in my password! Kind of really annoying.

It seems like Apple updated this to work even if background app refresh is off on devices -- a great way to work. It's now a solid service, and works like one expects. Thanks Apple! (No idea how long it's been this way, but a welcome change.)
