Apple has just made its Find My Friends app available to download. Find My Friends allows users of iOS 5 devices to see each other’s location on a map.

Find My Friends allows you to easily locate your friends and family from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Install this free app on your iOS 5 device and sign in with your Apple ID you use with iCloud. Adding a friend is easy – just send a request to see their location. Once your friend accepts using the Find My Friends app, you will then be able to see that friend’s location on a list or on a map.
  • Easily locate friends and family
  • Temporary sharing option
  • Simple privacy controls
  • Parental restrictions
  • Free for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

To use the app, you must be running iOS 5 and have an iCloud account. A fetish for stitched leather also helps!
