Description:

********************************
To receive instant notifications for the free SMS Chat and location updates you must have notifications switched on for FriFi under Settings->Notifications on your iPhone.
See www.frifi.net for Information and FAQ.
********************************
FriFi enables two or more users of the App to locate each other and chat to each other in an SMS style with no SMS charges whatsoever. It alerts you via Apples Push Notification Services to location updates or incoming chats even if the application is not running.
Also get routes to friends locations, simply tap their pin and then arrow on the right hand side.
You simply add a contact using their email address, If they approve your friend request then you are able to converse using the free SMS style chat and share ongoing location information with each other using your iPhones and FriFi.
Complete privacy is available at any time by preventing some or all of your contacts from seeing your location.
Add more than one location for your friends to see by using our innovative drop, drag and edit pins. Create your own descriptions of places on your map for your friends to find.
Simply tap the 'Drop Pin' button and drag the resulting pin around to where you want it placed. Once you’ve shared your location again your approved friends will then see all of your custom pins and any notes you may have made on that pin.
Also includes a zoomable world map of all your friends locations.
3rd Party Applications do not run in the background on the iPhone so your privacy is assured when the application is not running. It will only update your location when the App is running and if you've configured FriFi to do so.
Top Tips
========
NOTE: 1.5 The App will exit unexpectedly if you try to share a location when you have no contacts added to your list. We are aware of this and have a fix in progress. It will not affect you if you have added one or more friends to you friends list.
FriFi sends an invite email to each contact you add so that you can link up. Please do keep this in mind when using the 'Add All Contacts' option; as of version 1.3 the App warns you of this twice.
If accuracy is awkward or you're stuck inside then use the 'Drop Pin' instead to mark a desired location. Your friends will be able to see your custom pins and any notes you may have made for them.
Tap the refresh button on your friends list (3/4 arrowed circle at the top) to update their status indicators (red, amber or green dot to the left of the contact name).
Red indicates contact has been added by you but has not yet installed the application.
Amber indicates that they are signed up to FriFi but have not yet shared their location, have not approved your friend request or they are keeping their location private.
Green indicates that you can view their location.
Important
=======
The accuracy of the software is governed by the GPS hardware in the iPhone itself. If you are in a building then it can only be as accurate to someone’s location as the hardware in the phone will allow. Just like the GPS in your car. Accurate GPS signals are best obtained in open air or near to a window, if you are relying on mobile signal triangulation (normally used when inside a building) then the accuracy is not as precise as the 5-50m you get when outside.

Simple, straight forward, great app  rating of FriFi - GPS Friend Mapper and Free SMS Style Chat
By: A.J. Silva - Sep 7, 2009
Version: 1.0
FriFi is an app that is fun & very useful. Right down to the initial setup it's very simple to use...only asks for your name, e-mail address, & a password (only needed if you want/need to change devices). Privacy need not be an issue, you simply choose who can view your location based off a friends list, & then w/three viewable maps to choose from your good to go. I suggest if you can find a purpose to this app...DOWNLOAD IT!!! What do you have to lose? Certainly not money since it's free. FriFi is a great app.


Almost perfect  rating of FriFi - GPS Friend Mapper and Free SMS Style Chat

Been looking for a free one of these for awhile. NEEDS THESE: Need to only show a pin if ur stationary. If you or your friend are on the move, it should show as the blue dot. Should update faster when ur both on the move and close to each other. Im very happy with this, i recommend it. Some of the people with negative comments cant read. It asks u if you WANT to send everyone in ur contacts your location, etc...., the dumb people press yes.


Excellent idea  rating of FriFi - GPS Friend Mapper and Free SMS Style Chat

This App is one of the very few apps that has been thought about in it's design, and incorporates useful functionality for location finding. Finally we get useful tools and not gimicks to locate our friends. Other developers should take note. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that if you Route to a location, the app closes and takes you the iPhones standard mapping app. If one could rmain in the app at ALL times, this would be a 5 star app!Conclusion: get it whilst it's free! It's really very good.

Great alternative for FriendMapper!! More features and ease of use really makes this app shine. Is it perfect? Probably not, but for FREE, trust me, its probably better than most out there! Take the risk, especially for its price!!

A group of us used this app on a recent camping/beach holiday - excellent!! Real time tracking etc made for some great fun. We've also used it to meet up with friends driving through France and it worked a treat!! Can see it being very useful when in a large ski group..... will let you know!

This is a really good app! I like how you can chat and update. Some people don't like it cuz it adds everyone, but that's if you don't READ FIRST! Stupids... It warns you about it. I like it!

Would be better if we could search specific locations


Way too much work  rating of FriFi - GPS Friend Mapper and Free SMS Style Chat
By: Daaron - Nov 22, 2009
Version: 1.6
It takes too many steps to share locations or request others' locations. All I want is a map showing where my friends are, without all the tapping.
