New app will make sure you never lose your friends at a festival again

Tech 04/04/2019

Trying to stick with your crew at a festival can be an absolute nightmare.

If you lose someone, it's almost impossible to hear them on the phone, and hunting aimessly through a massive crowd is next to useless, especially when every second person is wearing the same shirt as your missing friend.

An Aussie pair decided they were sick of it and SearchParty was conceived.

The free app is designed to work with limited reception, lets you add friends to a map so you can find them easily, and lets you hit alert friends of any emergencies with the press of a button.

SearchParty launched for iOS in March and will reportedly be coming to Android this month.
