So you’re hanging out at your local whatever, and you want to let your friends know exactly where you are so you can all hook up for good times and bad craziness… But calling them and giving directions (across from the Starbucks, just past the old porn shop off Central Avenue, etc.) is such a hassle. Sure, you can already use Google Maps on your iPhone to send out the info, but that’s via an email or MMS. Too much work, right? With FlareGun, (available in the iTunes App Store for $0.99) the whole laborous process of detailing your whereabouts is turned into a simple text with your exact location as a link that can be viewed by anyone you have stored as a contact or have a phone number for.
There. “Dude, I just sent you a Flare…” Now get back to paying attention to that amazing him/her/whatever until the reinforcements arrive.
