Apple has updated its 'Find My Friends' location notification app. The small update makes it slightly more streamlined to search for and set location-based notifications.
The Next Web has more information about what has changed specifically:
The new interface for setting up those alerts has been tweaked to let you set the exact distance threshold from a location. This lets you fine-tune the sensitivity of an alert for, say, two different buildings on a campus. If you just wanted to know when someone is ‘home’, the older process with a ‘fixed’ zone was fine, but if you were looking to get notices when someone gets into a neighborhood, it was pretty much impossible.
Find My Friends is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

I hate to pin this one on lack of life experience, but here we go:
1. When you and your wife/husband/fiance lives separately on the east/west coast due to work. It's nice to know if they have arrived at work or arrived at home safely without calling them all the time.
2. When you have worrying parents who have kids living or working for long period of time overseas.
3. When you have teenagers who is bad at telling you when they are home.
4. When you have active older parents who you want to keep track of, to make sure they are where they are suppose to be. Instead of calling them when you are at work you can simply turn the apps on and check on them.
Bottom line, don't fight things for the sake of fighting things. Everything has its disadvantage, as well as it's advantage.
Fake leather on a digital non-corporeal piece of software disgusts you. Wow, how much does gasoline cost on your world?
What if it were just a yucky brown/tan gradient? Would that be better, really? Do people even use this thing at all (besides OAG of course)?
