The Jink location-sharing app is made to do one thing—make your whereabouts extremely clear to your friends. Developed by Greenhouse Apps, this app is comparable to Foursquare's Swarm, Facebook's Nearby Friends and Apple's Find My Friends, but it does have some unique features to help it stand out in a market that's already saturated with location-pinpointing apps.

The aim of the Jink app is to make sharing your exact location as easy as calling or texting someone. When you want to share your location with a friend, the app displays a map of the city, so that when you and a friend are moving closer to one another, it's apparent. Rather than having to switch back and forth from Jink to a messenger, Jink simply has your chats pop up in bubbles over your point on the map.
