Microsoft developing People Sense app for finding friends on Windows Phone
Microsoft Place took a deep dive into the most recent build of the app (which is currently codenamed Buddy Aware), and it seems fairly robust. In addition to providing real-time location info for the people you follow, it will give detailed directions to contacts’ locations and also have calling and messaging baked right in. By the looks of it, the only thing it lacks is notifications for when friends are nearby, though more features might be on the way.
It’s unclear when People Sense will see release, though the most recent build looks solid. That said, people might have to try harder to find uses for the app when most people have iPhones and Android devices.
