Links and Show Notes

Find My Friends is a well-designed location sharing app that is built into millions of iOS devices, yet it is not as well-known as it should be.

Find My Friends features fine-grained control over who can see your location and when. You can set up permanent or temporary location sharing, provide notifications of your movements to others and get notified when other people are on the move.

Siri knows about Find My Friends so you can ask questions like "Where is Bob?" or "Let me know when my wife leaves work."
