The cab’s waiting. That final Jaegerbomb is rapidly starting to feel like a bad idea. And you’re all ready to call it a night. But where on earth is Bob?
If your friends have an annoying habit of wandering off / falling asleep in a corner / getting lucky, then you need Buddy Check, a new app from Absolut Vodka. It uses A-GPS to pinpoint your friends’ exact location on a night out, and even sends an alert when someone crosses a virtual geofence.
To get started, everyone in the group downloads the app. With a simple tap of phones, the system connects you so you can see everyone’s location. Then throughout the night, the app asks you to do a ‘Buddy Bump’ where you have to find a specific friend before the timer stops and bump phones to get points.
Don’t worry, though. If the music suddenly swings from half-decent to 90s cheese, you can just press ‘leave’ to break the connection and make a sharpish getaway. Phew.
