The moment Apple released its new iOS5 operating system that it will go with its new iPhone 4S, the company made mention of a new app for iPhone users called “Find My Friends” as an iPhone app that is great for tracking the location of a friend and family within the location of the place the person is. Little do many believe that this after Tim Cook announces this feature at the WDDC earlier until when the app started working the same way it was touted by Apple.
This app works in a superb way whereby you can access your friends location anywhere you are with your iPhone device and the help of Find My Friends app once the other person at the other end accept the connection and then you can see their locations on your phone screen.
But to what apple said concerning this app, there are many other usefulness to it if the reports from an online posts appearing on a chatting forum at MacRumors.com are to be believed. The app works great for a man in New York City when he posted an information on the site about how the app helps him track her wife with another man. The statement reads thus:
“Divorcing wife. Thanks iPhone 4s and Find My Friends.
“I got my wife a new 4s and loaded up find my friends without her knowing. She told me she was at her friends house in the east village. I’ve had suspicions about her meeting this guy who live uptown. Lo and behold, Find my Friends has her right there.
“I just texted her asking where she was and the dumb b—- said she was on 10th Street!! Thank you Apple, thank you App Store, thank you all. These beautiful treasure trove of screen shots [sic] going to play well when I meet her … at the lawyer’s office in a few weeks.
“thankfully, she’s the rich one.”
However, after the man posted this information on Macrumors.com, he has not reply to any of the comments on the post, and as all efforts to get across to him prove abortive. Even, ABC News request some basic information from the man as the man was nowhere to be found online, that alone make many to have doubt about the authenticity of the post, but, no one knows if it is true or false yet. But, the man shows that the post is true when he came back online to upload the latest images about the incident to show people that the information is real.
The post had gotten more readership since the time it was published and that makes it one of the most read thread in the forum. MacRumors claims that since the time the man have posted the information on its site, more than 100,000 people have viewed the posts. And more than three hundred people out of those that reads the article replied with their expressions of sympathy, skepticism and some even use the privilege to make some jokes!
The editorial director for MacRumors, Arnold Kim, said that it was “definitely a busy thread.”
The iPhone app Find My Friends uses the default iPhone or the iPad’s built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) to see your friends’ and family’s’ locations on a map on the screen of your iphone device. This makes it easier for people to keep track of what their friends were doing somewhere else even while they are not available there.
And immediately this happened, the man made a phone call to the woman and she lied that she was in a place where she wasn’t even close to.This is what the man shared on the forum…
“this girl is so dumb. I just hope I can keep cool and not let on that I know she said she is in meat packing district which is on 12th street. I DONT THINK SO. appreciate the support. not my finest hour here but going to get better soon. “
