When Apple released the iPhone 4S and the new Find My Friends application the developers probably thought of the many ways in which this will help day-to-day life, however we doubt they ever thought the advances in technology would lead to someone catching his wife cheating – well it has!
Someone from New York City recently posted an entry on the MacRumors forums, to sum things up he had his suspicions about his wife, so installed the Find My Friends on his partner’s iPhone 4S – he then texted her asking where she was and she lied about her location whilst the app clearly showed she was at another guy’s house. In an attempt to prove that this wasn’t fake the screenshots (below) were posted.
Whether the above story is authentic is hard to judge, but we are sure that many of you will be sceptical, over at the forums over 300,000 people have viewed the post and many news sites have covered this story.
Most GPS-based applications are pretty accurate these days, therefore you would of thought that an Apple app running on brand new Apple hardware would be accurate to within a few metres of his wife’s actual location – obviously Facetime would have allowed for better evidence, or perhaps he could ask Siri – OK enough of the poor jokes, but it just goes to show how technology is changing the world.
So there you have it folks, Find My Friends truly does work – you can grab it from the App Store here, it’s free! We would like to think you have enough trust in your relationship to not have to secretly install it on someone else’s iPhone, but we live in a world where people go on talk shows to discuss their private matters – so don’t be too surprised if we hear plenty of similar stories over the next few months…
