Location Services

There are many apps available for mobile devices which are aware of your location, which make it easy at any time to show your friends and family where you are.

Some apps such as Facebook and Foursquare allow you to “check in” to a location. Others like Google Latitude, track your movements and record where you are and have been in real time. You can also share your location by geotagging, used by services like Instagram, which lets users know where a photograph was taken.
