Apple Will You Help Find Your Friends ... And Cheating Partner

Posted By on Mon, Oct 17, 2011 at 9:10 AM


Just like iTunes put record stores out of business, the new iPhone app, Find My Friends, will likely mean less work for private investigators. According to Forbes, a man might have busted his cheating spouse using the app a week after Apple released it. Find My Friends is supposed to be a cutting-edge way of quickly locating your friends and family via GPS.

The man, who identified himself as "ThomasMetz" on MacRumors, tells his cunning anecdote about how he surreptitiously used his wife's iPhone 4 to uncover her lies.

According to ThomasMetz:

I got my wife a new 4s and loaded up find my friends without her knowing. She told me she was at her friends house in the east village. I've had suspicions about her meeting this guy who live [sic] uptown. Lo and behold, Find my Friends has her right there.

Here is a screenshot of what he found -- as proof:


Who knows if this is just a hoax, but knowing how this new app works means that we may start seeing fewer cheating spouses, or perhaps more American divorces.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
