An important aspect of Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) is augmenting people and environments with computational resources which provide information and services unobtrusively whenever and wherever required. In line with the vision of UbiComp, we have developed a multi-user location-awareness system by following a user-centred design and evaluation method. In this paper we discuss the development of such a system that allows users to share informative feedback about their current geographical location. The proposed system can be used by various users, for example family members, relatives or a group of friends, in order to share the information related to their locations and to interact with each other. It is intended that this type of system in the future will become a typical part of the Smart Home environment.
