Friend Radar

Not Exactly Software
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

Find your friends. Let them know where you are. No sign-up required!
Want to try out Friend Radar but don't have anyone to try it with? Join group NESOFT and see what our imaginary friends are doing on vacation. Charlotte is at the Sydney Opera House. Alejandro is at the Alhambra. Francesca is at the Colosseum! We'll keep adding landmarks in the countries where people have purchased Friend Radar!

Friend Radar allows you to share your location with friends quickly and easily, with any iOS device with an Internet connection.

Many location-based apps require you to provide your email address, sign up for an account, or provide the email addresses of your friends and contacts. Friend Radar makes the process easy. Just pick a name and an icon for yourself, type in a group code or pick "Random" and go! You can email or text invitations to your group, and optionally password-protect your group to keep uninvited guests out.


✩ Sweeping radar screen that shows your friends' distance and location, and rotates with you (devices with compass only)
✩ Arrow view that points the way to a friend
✩ Map view with all of your friends (upgrade to Full Version through In-App Purchase!)
✩ Background updates and power saving options

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Use it for:

✩ Meeting up later at an amusement park - She's in line for that roller coaster
✩ Getting dinner ready - He's stuck in traffic on the way home
✩ Picking the kids up - They're waiting for you by the library
✩ Long distance hide and seek - Go to a big park and find your friends using only the Arrow view
✩ Feeling a little bit closer - See what friends are up to across town or across the world!

What you need:

✓ An iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 4.3 or later
✓ An Internet connection (Wi-fi or cellular)
✓ Location services enabled (for devices without the GPS feature, anywhere that the Maps application can determine your location, you're good!)

Free version has almost all of the features of the full version, and updates your location with your group every two minutes. Upgrade to the Full Version using the "View Upgrade" button to add the Map View, location updates every five seconds when the app is active, additional background update options and more!

What's new in version 1.6.0
** IMPORTANT NOTE ** This and future versions of Friend Radar only support devices running iOS 4.3 and higher. Unfortunately, iOS 3.1 through 4.2 are no longer supported.

✓ iPhone 5 support
✓ Fixed issue where iOS 6 users were having to rejoin after app was in the background
✓ Communications are SSL encrypted
✓ Automatic screen resizing when you're on a call
