That’s great and all but this has broken many geolocation apps since September 18th (iOS 7’s release date). It broke Apple’s own “Find My Friends” app too which now only works if both users have the app open. The only purpose of the app is to be able to find someone regardless of whether or not the app is open. How do you break the core functionality of a popular app and then take around seven months to fix it? How do you not catch this during testing? This wasn’t new functionality … it was keeping the same functionality around from a previous iOS release.
As much as I like Apple’s products, it’s things like this that made me wish they were as good at software as they are at hardware.
