    Locate helps you track your friends and family location and discover new places

    • Design
    • Ease of use
    • Google Maps integration
    • Routes and venues discovery
    • It should be less dependent on Facebook
    • Needs a built-in communication feature

    "Feel closer to your loved ones"

    Mobibit's Locate - Find My Friends is a simple yet well-designed solution to track your loved ones' location and discover new places.

    It works straightforwardly: sign up using your Facebook account (that's mandatory). Then, it will automatically import your Facebook contacts and you can add them to your Locate account or invite them. In addition, you can send and receive requests from other friends using your Locate's pin. Once set up, you'll see your Locate contacts on the map as well as dozens of venues around where you can check-in alone or with friends.

    Fortunately, it integrates Google Maps which makes it more intuitive since that's the mapping service we are more familiar with. Thus, you can apply four different map views (normal, satellite, hybrid and terrain). In addition, you can navigate through the list of nearby places, see their details and check-in. Locate integrates a great feature called "Locate All" which opens up the map focus in order to show all your Locate contacts at once on the map.

    Locate's set in a neat and polished interface. It's intuitive and runs smoothly. It would be nice if it were less dependent on Facebook and if it included a built-in chat or poking feature. Regardless, a well-crafted and useful app.
