Find My Friends has been updated with location based alerts, friend suggestions, and favorites.

Find My Friends allows you to easily locate your friends and family from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Install this free app on your device running iOS 5 or later and sign in with the Apple ID you use with iCloud. Adding a friend is easy - just send a request to see their location. Once your friend accepts using the Find My Friends app on their device, you will be able to see their location. And friends can request to see your location the same way. 

If you prefer, you can also choose to share your location with a group of friends for a limited time.

Use Find My Friends to keep track of your traveling companions when you're on vacation. Or to see if the kids are home from school. Or to meet up with friends for dinner.

If you're running iOS 6, you can also set up location-based alerts - to notify you when your kids leave school or a family member arrives home safely - or have Find My Friends notify others about your location.
