IDrive Lite has been a popular choice, and possibly the most popular contact backup application for the iPhones, Blackberries and Android phones.

We have just released an update to the iPhone App that enables it to do Location.  It is not a Facebook  or a FourSquare type of  location where one checks-in. What it does is this:  With a strict permission based process, it allows one to view the location of their contacts. It is really easy to use. Give it a spin.

Now why is Location added to a backup application?

We backup digital data. We offer a safety-net for digital data. Providing opt-in location information of loved ones and friends is sort of a way of safety-net in the real world. We don’t think it is too far fetched.

For details, view the demo on the IDrive Lite page.
