Zhiing – turn your phone into a voluntary homing beacon…

While this isn’t entirely revolutionary – there are other applications and services that do location tracking – Zhiing has a nice twist in that it’s a) initiated by the person wanting to be tracked and b) doesn’t require any sign up by the person you’re “zhiinging”.  It’s not working anywhere outside of North America just yet, but if they can get Asia sorted out, man, I can’t tell you how much hassle this will save me visiting friends in random cities.  

Instead of texting me loads of directions and explanations – a single “zhiing” will tell me exactly where they’re located, complete with turn by turn directions.  Love it.
