NOTE: To use Find My Friends, your device must have the Google Maps and Google Play apps installed. Moreover, both you AND your friends (with whom you wish to exchange locations) must have the app installed and logged in to at least a social network.

Find My Friends allows you to exchange REAL-TIME locations on Google maps with your friends. Location exchange is visible only to you and your selected friends. The app's unique feature is that supports four different contact domains; your Facebook/Google+ friends, phone/tablet contacts and LinkedIn connections. You neither have to send any invites to your friends, nor to create an account! The moment you launch Find My Friends, you may directly exchange locations with any of your friends. ;-)

To exchange locations with a friend from a social network, follow these 3 simple steps:

1. Open Find My Friends and select with whom you wish to exchange locations. A notification will be sent to the selected contact.
2. Wait until your friend also opens the app, and selects you to exchange his/her location.
3. As soon as a connection is established, both of you will be able to see and track each others location on Google maps.

Find My Friends allows seamless location exchange from all supported social network profiles: If you and your friend login to Facebook, Google+, and Linkedin with Find My Friends, then you can ask for his location by selecting his/her Facebook profile, and he can ask for yours via your Google+ profile.

Find My Friends also offers the "location to browser" extremely useful feature; If desired, you can transmit your REAL-TIME location to ANY online device with a web-browser (e.g. smartphones, tablets, notebooks, desktop PCs).

You can also use Find My Friends to send constantly your location to close contacts (e.g. family members, spouse, good friends) even when you do not run the app.

The app is useful in cases, such as:
* Find a friend / family member in case you lost each other.
* Show to a friend / family member where you are, so they can find you.
* Get help from a friend / family member to reach your destination with real-time instructions.

Find My Friends provides a 30-day trial period with full access to all features. You can purchase a subscription extension by 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. A valid subscription provides access to:

1. Unlimited location sharing with all your contacts on the map
2. Send your REAL-TIME location to ANY online device
3. Send on the background your location to all selected close contacts
4. Unlimited chatting
5. Access waypoints that friends send you
6. See the current address of all your friends on the map
