newbie questions

This seems to be a good program but the FAQ and descriptions are NOT clear. For one thing, it does not ever clearly say whether, when you add friends, you can see them on the app itself, which is what I want. I ASSUME so, but I would like to know.
Also, I assume that if it can't get a gps fix the app can use wireless or phone towers to locate you, because it has my location perfectly and I am indoors with my gps not activated. But this again is not stated anywhere.

Can someone tell me if these assumptions are right before I waste a lot of time with a program that doesn't do what I need? Thanks.

both of your assumptions are correct. You can add up to five friends and and as soon as they have accepted your request you will see them on your map. But of course they will have to run the tracker on their phone too to make it working.

The app will use cell tower location and wifi location if GPS is not available.
