The best part is the person you want to request a location from does not need to have the Geoflik app installed on their phone. Geoflik works using the GeoSMS standard to exchange geolocation information. This allows geoflik to work with other geolocation apps on your phone such as google maps. When your location request has been responded to you will receive their geolocation in the form of a map. Then you can either open in google maps or get directions via google maps.
Because Geoflik works via text message SMS, there is no need to be "friends" with the person you are requesting location from. There is no pre-existing relationship required to request someone's location. Simply type in their phone number, press request, and they will receive a text message with your request. If they accept your request, their gps will acquire their location and send it back to you as a notification on your phone. This notification will open a map pinpointing their geolocation.
