Locate your Friends with FriendsRadar for Android

Are you so into Social Networking that you need to know when your friends are at all times? To the risk of sounding like a complete stalker, this app will help you keep close tabs of your friends and loved ones. XDA member friendsradar presents us with FriendsRadar, which is a Latitude type app. Basically, the app will know the location of your friends by looking at the GPS coordinates fed by your friend’s devices.  How is this different from Latitude though? As it turns out, you can call, send e-mail, or SMS to any friend that you are looking for with ease, directly from the app. Moreover, the app offers a mode called augmented reality (AR), which unfortunately is not well described in the market description. Based on some screenshot of the app, it seems to be something like street view but with your friend’s information in the images.

Interested? Give it a go and make sure that you leave some feedback in the thread.

Hello people, i present you a new Augmented Reality App on the Android Market:

FriendsRadar is a mobile App with which you can find your friends* in the easiest way with the augmented reality view (AR). Think about that, how many times are you in a place trying to meet some friends but you can not locate them (Don’t be afraid about localization, we considered your privacy concerns, therefore you can activate your GPS for few minutes then turn it off, you can select what friend can receive your position, etc., YOU have the control).

You can find more information in the application thread.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks.

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
