As some of you might know or might be already using Nokia Friend View, the beta app has been updated and friend alerts feature has been added to it.
Friend View is actually a location and micro-blogging service that helps you stay in touch with your friends and family so you can update one another with what you are doing and where you are doing it.
You can actually update your status… what you are doing… how you feel.. who you are meeting.. or simply just post a note and let your friends know where you are using the Friend View app on your phone or the web version of the service.
Now you can keep Friend View in the background in “Normal” or “Active” modes (options: Refresh Mode) and a “pling-plung” from Friend View will tell you that your friend is close by so you can meet. You will of course get alerted as well if Friend View is in use in foreground.
Depending on where you live or travel, on your schedule and mood, you can adjust the Friend alerts’ meeting zone (options: More: Settings – Friend Alerts & Meeting zone) to define how close your friends should be to get alerted.
