It would be really nice if Messages knew about the people I had on Find My Friends. Right now there’s a disconnect that really doesn’t need to be there.

It works. It’s fine. But you know what would be better? Something like this:

Location in the same app, even on the main messages screen

Taking it even further

iOS also has capabilities to detect what you’re doing, such as walking, driving, etc, and I think it’d be really nice if it also said that.

Driving, especially. If the person who just texted me knew I was driving, they might understand why I’m not responding right away. Because I’m being safe, or whatever.

Update: 10/2014. iOS8 Implemented this feature, pretty much just how I outlined in my comp, minus the small text under the name on the main screen. I’ll take it. Much better.
