It became clear last week that Latitude was about to launch on the i Phone when Google unveiled Location for the mobile Safari browser.That feature allowed you to click a button on Google’s homepage and access the i Phone’s location services.
With Latitude, you can: * See your friends on a map – find out who’s nearby and meet up.
Google made the free service available to Blackberry and Android users first (and it only took a week for a million of them to sign up and, incidentally, start catching criminals.) Up until this week, users had been anxiously awaiting the release of Google Latitude for i Phone.
Unfortuantely not in the form of a native app, Google Latitude was released as a "web app," only accessible through Safari, i Phone's web browser.
Google Latitude is essentially a Google Map that has points with all your friend’s locations – seeing they like Google and being stalked – and works in the background.
With Google Latitude, see where your friends are right now.
Update: Looks like Google may have thrown the app up a bit early – It’s now gone from “all the world’s” App Stores.
