Buddy Check: A Virtual Leash On Friends During a Night Out
A new app will prevent you from losing track of mates during a less-than-sober evening
Absolut Vodka brings forth Buddy Check, an app that will keep all of your friends in check during a night out. The app uses A-GPS to pinpoint a buddy's exact location and sends alerts when the person crosses a virtual geofence.
Night outs with friends always start out as fun but often end up with the frustrating task of herding all members of the clique. Some will take a quick trip to the restroom, some will stay at the bar forgetting about their company and some might just take a cab and make their way home without bothering to give a heads up.
