App news: V Festival app offers Facebook friend finder

Find your errant pals with new festival app.

The new official app for the V music festival gives users the opportunity to track down their wayward pals with the Facebook friend finder functionality - a first for a festival app.

The free V Festival app, available for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Nokia, will show your Facebook friends on a site map if they've run off in a drunken stupor to go and hang out in the dance music tent.

Nokia phone owners will get exclusive content including the brilliant Clashfinder feature we've seen on other festival apps. There's also social networking integration, competitions and weather updates.

Virgin Media is also providing free Wi-Fi hotspots across the site in order to help folks stay connected over the weekend festivities which take place in Hyland Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Stafford on 20th and 21st August.

Festival goers, who'll be entertained by the likes of Eminem and the Arctic Monkeys over the weekend, can download the application from the various app stores now.
