From Absolut Vodka, Buddy Check is an app that lets you keep a virtual leash on your friends during your night out. Anyone who has been to a busy bar or club knows how quickly you can lose your friends in the (often alcohol fuelled) crowd. This smartphone application is intended to help you keep track of everyone, even when your brain is not quite at its sharpest.

By using A-GPS, Buddy Check can locate your friend's exact position and can send you notifications when that friend leaves a designated geo-fence (i.e. leaves the bar). Ideal for going out in groups, if everyone downloads and activates the mobile app, a simple tap will sync everyone's devices. 'Buddy Bumps' also gamify the process and get you points for touching base with your pals.
