Apple's 'My Friends' App: Google Latitude-Like Stalking

Apple just announced a new app called Find My Friends. The app will show you where your friends are on a map so you can find them when you're lost, meet up with them if they're near or just plain stalk them.

It's OK I guess but it's nothing new. There are some neater features to prevent you from oversharing though. According to GDGT, the Find My Friends app will let you set location-sharing blocks of time, so at the end of the day, location sharing will stop automatically if you so choose to. There's temporary sharing options and simple privacy controls as well.

I'm not sure how much I'll use it, but I think some parents will like to know where their kids are. [Gizmodo Liveblog]
