Buddy Beacon Goes 2.0, Gets Facebook Application

Buddy Beacon

By Luke Anderson

If you’re a Helio user , you’re probably familiar with the Buddy Beacon. I’ve been using Helio for a while, and it’s pretty cool to be able to look up my friends and see where they’re at. Anyway, uLocate (the guys behind Buddy Beacon) are rolling out a new version of the software today.

First up, Buddy Beacon will soon be available on a variety of networks, instead of being a Helio exclusive. This new alone is great, because I know a several people with Sprint and AT&T phones that would love to use this feature.

The other big news is that they are going to make Buddy Beacon compatible with Facebook. They have released an application (it’s still in Beta) so that your friends can see what you’re up to just by checking out your Facebook page. Personally, I don’t want to make it that easy for everyone to know where I am, but it’s certainly cool for those that are a bit more social than I.
