“Find my Friends” App Catches Wife Cheating

Last Wednesday, Apple released iOS 5.0 in the wilds and also announced a few new iOS applications for the iPhone and iPad.

One notably was the “Find my Friends” App which allows you to share your GPS location data with other friends and family that you have authorized to see your location.  Apple provided this feature as an all the time option or as an event based / temporary option to handle those situations where you may wish to share this information at times you may be at an event, such as in their example, Disneyland.

Well, a New York man has taken this to the next level.  He apparently got his wife a new iPhone 4S on Friday and unbeknownst to her, installed the Find my Friends App on her iPhone and authorized the sharing of data with his iPhone 4S.


She told him that she was going to visit a girlfriend later that night.  Turns out she was seeing her lover.

The guy said “I got my wife a new 4s and loaded up find my friends without her knowing. She told me she was at her friends house in the east village. I’ve had suspicions about her meeting this guy who live uptown. Lo and behold, Find my Friends has her right there.

The man repeatedly thanks Apple for its services and he sounds good. Later on, he added pictures for which he says that it’s a proof against her that will be shown when he files a lawsuit against her wife.
