Location and updating

Hey is there anyway in Xcode to program so you can see your location and other people who have the app’s location. Kinda of like Snapmaps in snapchat where it’s always updating where people are at?

Welcome to the code crew community.

You would need to be able to store all the users locations in a database so that implies that the user would need to login. Each user would have to agree to allow their location to be shared. Location access is a privacy issue and to access a users location a request authorisation is made to which the user has to either agree to or disallow. Storing users locations could also be interpreted as tracking so your terms of use would have to clearly lay out what you intend to do with users location data.
