FindFatimApp, which launches next week, was revealed just days after international praise was being heaped on a new service that alerts husbands via SMS whenever their female dependants cross Saudi borders. But developers at Riyadh-based Trouble N’ Strife Inc believe the new technology takes things a step further and are calling it the “ultimate in spousal tracking solutions”.
Once signed up to the service, which comes with a monthly fee, husbands can easily load up to four wives via the app’s intuitive menu system. From there, with the simple touch of a button, the app uses GPS tracking to pinpoint the location of each wife to within five metres and can map out their movements over the previous 24 hours.
“Only with FindFatimApp can you monitor the movements of up to four wives on screen simultaneously,” said lead developer Abdulrahmen Noodles. “And with our unique ‘Marital Marker’ facility, you can programme your app’s alarm to go off when one should venture beyond a certain point.”
