So, picture this: you log into social media to catch up with friends and instead catch your significant other in a big fat lie. And bonus - you're totally crushed. That's kind of what allegedly happened to a man in New York City.
The man claims to have caught his wife cheating thanks to the new iPhone 4S app called "Find my Friends."
The app let's you track and meet up with friends. If they agree, you can see their locations on a map on your screen. Seems innocent enough.
In online posts appearing on the chat forum MacRumors.com a person under screenname ThomasMetz says the following:
"Divorcing wife. Thanks iPhone 4s and Find My Friends.
"I got my wife a new 4s and loaded up find my friends without her knowing. She told me she was at her friends house in the east village. I've had suspicions about her meeting this guy who live uptown. Lo and behold, Find my Friends has her right there.
"I just texted her asking where she was and the dumb b---- said she was on 10th Street!! Thank you Apple, thank you App Store, thank you all. These beautiful treasure trove of screen shots [sic] going to play well when I meet her ... at the lawyer's office in a few weeks.
"thankfully, she's the rich one."
A spokesperson for Apple told ABC that "The Find My Friends app is a great way to share your location with people who are important to you," whether you're trying to meet up with friends at a crowded bar or make sure loved ones get home safely.
The man was back with a new post later in the day and a screen shot of 65th Street. He said his wife texted it "Was hard to find stupid cab hate meat packing...."
The husband then says: "She said she is in meat packing district which is on 12th street. I DONT THINK SO. Appreicate [sic] the support. not my finest hour here but going to get better soon."
It's unknown if this is a hoax or if there truly is a broken-hearted chum out there who could use a more benign app. Maybe 12-Ways to Mend a Broken Heart?
