Recently, Apple has been making some big changes to their apps. Last week, Podcasts was completely remodeled to be user-friendlier. So far, I’m liking it. Yesterday, the iPad maker updated Find my Friends to include a new user interface for setting up location-based alerts.
The Find my Friends app uses geofencing (a defined perimeter that is “fenced in” from the rest of a map) to set up alerts when you or your friends arrive or depart a new location. The update allows users to identify the location more accurately.
