About GeoShare:

GeoShare is real-time location tracking for your friends and family. Unlike other services such as Foursquare that lets you broadcast to a large number of people where you are, GeoShare allows you to broadcast your real-time whereabouts to a select few people. Unlike Google Latitude GeoShare does not require sign up or invitations to work.

To share their location a user simply has to:

  1. Pick someone from their phone’s address book
  2. Send a text message with a link to their whereabouts
  3. Stuff the phone in their pocket until they reach their destination or meeting point.

Recipients of the link don’t even need to have the app installed to see the sender’s location on an interactive web map. Whenever the sender wants to stop sharing they simply hit stop and go back into private mode.
