You are in full control of who you share your location with. You can manually confirm every location request you receive.
You can also choose to respond automatically by adding trusted contacts to your Whitelist. With no buttons to press, the Whitelist is especially useful when you are driving and can't answer the phone, you can still reassure loved ones that you're on your way.
You can avoid being bugged by unwanted location requests by using your Blacklist. Locator ignore any requests from contacts on this list and will not even tell you that you have had a request from them.
You can remove people from your Whitelist and Blacklist at any time from the main Locator screen.
Locator can also respond to requests from non-Android smart phones. If they send an SMS with the phrase 'WhereAreYou', Locator will send Google map reference which can be opened in their browser. This approach can also be used by Android users who do not have the Locator app installed.
As Locator uses GPS to work out where it is, your phone has to have GPS enabled for Locator to work.
Important: To use the automated replies to your friends, please make sure that your phone handles SMS correctly. If you have times when you receive the same SMS many times and you pay for each SMS, you should not use the Whitelist in this application, as it will respond to each request you receive.
Please see our website - http://www.potterprograms.co.uk/Locator.php for information on this application.

Says one reviewer: ★★★★★ “Great app! Allows you to keep track of a network of people and even lets you see how they have moved about in the last hours!—Mikael Bergbrant
Some of the most popular Find My Friend functions, features and benefits include:
Find Your Friends
Once installed on your phone, Find My Friends can help you locate your friends anytime or anywhere. Just view the map on the Find My Friends app—each friend appears as their own, individual icon. The map updates in real-time, so you can quickly learn where each person is and also, where they are going.
Here’s a perfect example of how Find My Friends is a helpful friend locator: Say you’re going camping with a group of people. Before the trip, have all campers install the Find My Friends app on their phones. Now you can chat with everyone simultaneously to coordinate trip details, such as meeting time and place, supplies/shopping list duties, suggest trails to hike or tourist spots to visit on the trip. This all can be decided in advance of your journey so you can make the most of your time appreciating nature in the great outdoors, not with your nose buried in a guidebook or travel app. You can also use Find My Friends to locate errant campers still enroute to the pre-determined meeting point and estimate a group meeting time. And if you have any direction-challenged friends who typically get lost…Find My Friends can help you guide them to the campsite location in a timely fashion, because you know exactly where there are! Even after the camping trip is over, Find My Friends is a helpful app. You can monitor the app’s map to make sure everyone got home safely and then visit it again, when it’s time to plan your group’s next adventure!

It's Stealth because it appears in the application list as a harmless flashlight app named "FlashLight". It is indeed a very excellent flashlight app that will help you see around in the dark. The real locator program, however, lives invisibly in the phone 24/7. A thief or a kidnapper might not be alarmed by such an innocent looking app.
Other locator apps stand out like a sore thumb with names like "phone tracker" or "best phone locator" and they would be the first apps to go should your phone get into the wrong hands.
Install Stealth Droid Locator (SDL) on a Phone that you want to always be able to locate. It appears as an app named FlashLight with a red round icon.
Run FlashLight. An on/Off button operates the LED and screen brightness. This is the only time you will ever have to run the app.
To find the location of the phone, you send the phone a text message from any other phone that is capable of sending text messages. To find the geographic location of the phone send &&& and you will get back a text message containing a Google maps link to the location of the phone. If you send &&A the phone will sound a loud siren (even if the sound is turned off) so you can find it if you misplaced it around the house.
The cool thing is that nothing has to be running on the phone - Flashlight just has to be installed on the phone!
That's all you need to know but there is more you should know . . .
Be sure to read http://www.deanblakely.com/SDL.pdf
Also, more details are available at http://www.deanblakely.com/Android.aspx
SDL has many uses:

• Use SDL on your own phone in case it becomes lost or stolen.
• Traveling with a group? Anyone in the group can Locate anyone else in the group.
• Use it on your own phone so others can locate you (you can disable it).
• Under-cover cops can use it so those at HQ can find where they are.
• Track your vehicle fleet by putting SDL on driver's phones.
• Hikers, hunters, and such are safer with SDL on their phones should they become lost or injured.

NEW Invite feature!
With this new version, simply add a You widget and choose the new Invite button, enter their Android or BlackBerry 10 phone number and that's it! After they Accept, you can both see each other's updates.
How many times have you sent a text message like "Where are you?"
This app reduces that need.
Because it's a widget on your home screen, it automatically updates where people are. Just show your home screen, and instantly see where everybody is that you care about, at a glance.
This app uses very little of your battery. It does not use GPS or WiFi or Location Services or Bluetooth.
It's similar to a social networking "check in". And the best part about Where R U: it is completely secure and private.
With one tap you can quickly update where you are. Your new location is instantly available to other people's home screen widgets that you have authorized.
There is a built-in Users Guide that you can get to on most of the screens.
How to run it: after you press Install, Accept & download, and Installing... has finished, you can not open or run this app right away. It will not show up in your list of applications.
Next: add a widget to your home screen.
With Android 4 and higher: press the Apps button, pick from Widgets, long press Where R U and drag it to your home screen.
Android versions less than 4: long press on your home screen. Choose: Widgets. If your list is in alphabetical order you need to scroll down to near the end of your available widgets and then you will see the blue Where R U widget. Press it.

The original idea for this app started in 2003 when text messaging was gaining popularity. The idea was to quickly push location based text messages from templates to feature phones. Work was done in 2009 with smart phones. We decided to publish it now, so that our own family members can communicate where they are. We have three teenagers and with “Where R U” we know if they are working, at home, in school, at a friend's, or on the move! We know that this app will become a valuable tool for your family as well!
