[prMac.com] Constanta, Romania - Announcing that Amunsol, the developers of Tracker for Facebook Pro, has released their latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. This is a new, innovative application that lets users see a map and list view of their Facebook friends' locations in real-time and via Facebook Places Check-Ins. Users are able to also send messages with smileys, hide their location and tracking history and more. Tracker for Facebook also offers the unique capability of being able to view friends in a camera augmented reality.
When Amunsol developers released the first version of Facebook Tracker, they did more than just put an App on the market. These developers launched a newly exciting innovation that Facebook users will love.
Tracker for Facebook Pro offers a dizzying array of features and functions, most notably, the tracking and displaying of a Facebook friend's GPS location, both current in real-time, as well from a location history in Facebook Places Check-In. The results are shown in both a map and a list view and users can choose to look at one or both.
Very practically, the app uses an iDevice's GPS to locate addresses and to let a user know who is nearby and potentially available for meeting at a nearby restaurant or pub. When a user locates someone close to their current location, they can send a private message, complete with a smiley face if they want, to see if they can arrange to get together, or whatever the case may be.
Just because Tracker for Facebook can find Facebook friends, it doesn't mean open season with unwanted tracking. Users have the option to protect their privacy by hiding their location and their location history and no one's location is tracked unless they accept an invitation for that to happen.
These are some of the key features in Tracker for Facebook Pro:
* Astonishing design, specially made for iPhone 4 retina display
* Uses a device's GPS positioning for real-time location positioning
* Google Maps integration to display locations on a map view
* Camera augmented reality (very cool!)
* View friends' locations history for real-time and FB Places check-ins
* Local notifications for receiving messages, while application is in background
* Private messages inbox
* Messages contain smiley support
* Easy invite form
* Facebook Connect support
* Map type settings in either miles or kilometers
* Option to hide location and public history
* Background location updating switch on/off
* In-app purchases available
* Help support
One of the most amazing and fun features of Tracker for Facebook Pro is the augmented reality capability. Users merely open their phone camera; pick a location and the app will show a friend in a futuristic version of their location. This mode can be used for real-time tracking or with Facebook Places Check-In. This is a very unique and innovative feature that isn't like to be found elsewhere.
Users can take this app for a test run by downloading the free version of Facebook Tracker, which lets users track two of their Facebook friends. All of the features can be unlocked from there by just making the 99 cent in-app purchase of the Pro version.
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.1 or later
