MeMap, a new application by iOS developer Matt Farnell aims to provide easy and intuitive social location sharing using Facebook Places as a foundation. By integrating with Facebook and providing a front-end experience similar to other location-based apps such as Foursquare, Loopt and Gowalla, MeMap allows users to leverage the world’s largest social network for location sharing rather than having to sign up for and then invite friends to join specific location-based services. MeMap aggregates location data shared on Facebook Places from Facebook or any third-party location-based network and provides a simple, intuitive map interface displaying friends’ locations and check-ins. The application provides single-tap check-ins for location reporting as opposed to continuous location tracking and includes advanced privacy features that allow users to control how check-ins are shared and provides a simple method for clearing all location data entirely. MeMap users can also send messages through the app to other MeMap users and share checkins to Twitter as well as Facebook. MeMap is available from the App Store as a free download.
