Apps for Finding the Whereabouts of Your Travel Companions

If you’re directionally challenged, it’s hard enough just to find your own way from one place to another — so what happens when you’re on a family vacation or traveling with friends and you become separated? If you don’t do everything en masse, how can you be sure to meet up at the right place? Or, if the various members of your group (or your kids) each decide to go off on their own merry ways, how can you know where they’ve disappeared to? One option is to pick a landmark everyone recognizes, set a time to rendezvous, and figure out how to make your way there. Another option is to keep in touch by cell phone. The third option is . . . there’s an app (or several) for that!
