Friend Finder widen Facebook features by adding geo-location. Thanks to Friend Finder you'll be able to see in real-time where you friends are on a map and even meet them if they're nearby.
Actually, Friend Finder is a great idea that favors real meetups with Facebook friends that otherwise you won't even happen. If FF notifies that a friend is just around, why don't pass by and say hello? Yes, that's the good approach, the bad one is regarding privacy: is it safe to share where you are 24/7.
Well, Friend Finder allows you to choose who you're going to share location with by ticking your contacts from a list. In addition, you friends must accept that request, otherwise you won't be able to share location with them. This partly solve the privacy issue.
Once done, you'll be able to see each other on the map (Google's Map is the source). You can even share your phone number and allow shared friends to call you. If you enable it, you'll be notified when friends are nearby. You can set friend's minimum distance to get notifications.
Really easy to use. Layout should be enhanced though. Buttons and navigation through menus is tricky. Despite of this, Friend Finder is a really useful app. Recommendable.
