Apple's Find My Friends app saves the life of a 17-year old
Often when a teenager fails to return home at night, a heart breaking tragedy is behind the disappearance. So when 17-year old Macy Smith missed curfew on the evening of June 7th, her mother, Catrina Cramer Alexander, was frantic. Greensboro North Carolina's WFMY-TV reports that both mother and daughter had previously agreed to share their location with each other using the iPhone's "Find My Friends" app, and Macy wasn't answering calls or responding to texts. As Alexander put it "The lack of response was out of character for her." And "Find My Friends" showed that the teen had been in the same location all evening.
