Zenly is a live map of your friends and family. It’s the most fun way to meet up — or just see what’s up! — so even when you’re apart, you can feel together. Zenly is an app from Snap Inc. that millions of people around the world use. Here’s what it can do:

*See exactly where your friends are and what they’re up to
*Know which friends are awake and ready to hang out
*Get to your friends without asking for the address
*Know when your friends are on the move and how fast they’re moving
*Know when they’re at home, at school, at work and when they’re on their way to any of those places

*Know when your friends are together with fire on the map and create a group chat in a tap
*When you do meet up, Bump phones with friends to let others know you’re hanging out

*Blast your friends with your favorite emojis (hint: sound on)
*Know when your friends run out of battery when you can’t reach them
*See how much of the map you’ve explored with Footprints and compete with friends
*Get notified when your friends travel to different countries

*Blur or freeze yourself to get off the grid for as long as you need
*Zenly is for best friends only. We have a number of ways you can add friends on Zenly, but remember that your friend will need to accept your request before you can see them on your map!

Zenly is free to use and without ads (yay!). We’ve also spent 10 years developing a very special algorithm that allows for continuous sharing without draining your battery (also yay!).

Got a question? Fancy a chat? Need an ice cream recommendation? Send us a message on @zenlyapp on social and on email.

Zenly loves you.

What’s New

Version 4.51.1

Hey there, good looking. I’ve got not one, but two big updates for you this week. Buckle up!

So, what’s Up? I built a new way for you to not just ask your friends What’s Up, but actually see What’s Up!

Send your friends a What’s Up and they’ll record and share the moment they are living with you. You can rebound, sending back your moment (which can be a video or a photo) to show them that while they’re at the club, you’re at home watching Netflix. Get a glimpse into their world, or just know if the party is good before going.

You can save moments that you send and receive to your memories. With memories, you can look back on all the times shared with friends, whether you were together or apart. Think of it as the highlight reel of your friendships!

Ready to give it a spin? Update the app and send a What’s Up to your friend directly from the emoji panel. It’s the first one there.

Before you go, I have one more new thing for you! You can now get transit directions from my close personal friend Citymapper, right inside Zenly. Next time you want to find the quickest way to the party or you just want to head home, you’ll see all the best transit options available for your journey, the pricing, and how long it’ll take to get there.

I don’t know about you, but I always wanted to fall in love with a stranger on the subway.

Amazing app

I love this app . The best gps app ever! It stays in even if background is down or when battery dies once person turns phone back on it's on . As a mother this is a gift!

Update : this used to be the best tracking app until lately . With each update it started to mess up . It is now no longer tracking and the person is in sane place fir days . I had both phones with me just to see and still it could not locate . It said reasoning was off , no service , hiding from me etc but all were impossible as I has the phone . I will delete permanent soon of can't get too work . Sad as I campaign this app at work but lately it's being disappointing

Zenly deleted my account for no reason!

I’ve never written reviews before but this is just beyond sad and frustrating. So one day my account just disappeared. Yes like, boom, gone. I opened the app and it got logged out automatically, I tried logging in with my number but it created a new account. I tried contacting support and they said it’s permanently deleted and cannot be recovered. So I lost everything, footprints, friends. I mean the information has got to be somewhere right? On the website it even says it’ll be kept for 30 days. Not to say I didn’t even try deleting my account Zenly just did it. I’ll never be able to get those footprints back now, which is also the main reason I used Zenly. It’ll be impossible to get the same footprints either. The feeling is like having your memory card formatted by someone else. So unless they somehow miraculously found my old account back I don’t want to use this anymore. What if they deleted my account again? I don’t wanna be heartbroken twice. No I’m not giving them another chance. Am I the only one that experienced this? Wow unbelievable can I be more lucky than that. Wish I was lucky in other ways. A simple wish would just be to get my account back🙄🙄
