FindMe allows you, your nearest and dearest to track each other. Simultaneously useful and scary.
by editor on March 15, 2010
This clever little beta-version app is a way of seeing where your friends are and finding places near you.
Rather similar to Google Latitude, it enables you to track the location of friends and family using GPS, via your account at www.findmeyou.com and on a map on your mobile, though you can also set your location manually should you wish to.
You could view the location of your friends as they make their way to meet you, for example. Only those who you’ve permitted can see your location, except in cases where you set common access status to your location data. In that case, your location data is available to all FindMe users and the app can also be used outside of the UK, as with Google Latitude.
The app also enables you to take geotagged photos which can then be viewed through your account at the website. You’re also able to find other FindMe users according to their mobile phone numbers and everything you do on your handset will also be replicated on your account at the website.
It’s a clever idea, but is terribly designed in terms of look and feel and didn’t quite work every time – while it depends on your friends having a compatible handset – as well as Nokia, FindMe also works with certain LG, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and Motorola handsets.
