Radar for Facebook
By Ben Steffens
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Radar is a new revolutionary geo-sharing app that lets Facebook users broadcast their location to friends and family, as well as public users with similar shared interests and mutual friends. It also revolutionises the way in which you send friend requests to people you've just met!
◆ Friend Radar:
Your 'Friends Radar' will show you which of your friends are nearby. You will have the options to message your friends, view their location on the map view and get directions!
◆ Push Notifications:
The app doesn't only connect users through technology, its helps bring you together with your friends in real life by alerting you when a friend is nearby!
◆ Public Radar:
The 'Public Radar' shows public users who are nearby. It allows you to add people you've just met in real life within a single tap, it's also a great way to make new friends; you can start chats with locals who have mutual friends or similar interests to you!
◆ Map View:
You can switch the map view at any time to see what you're friends are up to, or to meet new people in a more geographical way!
Ever met some great people when you're out and about, that you wished you had added on Facebook to keep in contact? Our history feature will remember who you've been around.
The app will automatically organise the results, placing the people you've been nearest to at the top of the list!
We understand that privacy can be a delicate matter when it comes to your location. Our Radars have been carefully designed to enable you to protect your privacy to a degree you feel comfortable. You can hide your location, intact the app has over ten unique privacy settings, which means you can feel safe broadcasting your location to the select group of family and friends you feel comfortable with.
There's much more to discover in Radar.. Try it out now!

What's New in Version 1.3
Needs on/off for GPS
I agree with the first review, potentially only real review - the others look very "canned" and possibly fake, there needs to be an option to turn GPS tracking off, or to limit how long you're findable. Without that, the app leaves you always visible, even when you may not want to be.
Great app for finding people
Great app for finding others on Facebook in your area. It's cool because most apps like this require you to have a special app, but this works with Facebook, everyone has FB these days
For anyone who use Facebook regularly and have tons of friends this application could be very useful. I also would like to mention the design, which is indeed fantastic
