Here’s a quick look at the apps Apple released today.
iTunes Movie Trailers
iTunes Movie Trailers allows you to browse hundreds of movie trailers and behind the scene clips for some of the biggest films and cinema. The app includes an interactive, year-long release calendar that helps you plan when you’ll be going to the theaters.
The app also has top charts to view the most downloaded trailers, box office rankings, and top movies on iTunes to buy or rent.

Find My Friends
Find My Friends enables users to locate your friends and family from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
To add a friend, you must send a request to see their location. Your friend will need to have the Find My Friends app installed on their iOS Device as well. After your friend accepts your request, you will be able to see that friend’s location on a list or on a map.
You also have the option to only share your location for a limited time.
AirPort Utility lets users manage their Wi-Fi network and AirPort base stations, including AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and Time Capsule from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
