Google Latitude, the app that lets you see where are friends and family are in real time, is now finally back in the App Store after it was approved but quickly pulled a week ago. Running on iOS 4.0 or later and newer iDevices (iPhone 3GS+, iPod Touch 3rd Gen+ and iPad), the app resides in the background to share users’ location, which is then displayed on a map.
With Latitude, you can:
* See your friends on a map – find out who’s nearby and meet up.
* Share your location continuously with whomever you choose – help friends and family stay in touch with you, even when you can’t take out your phone.
* Control your privacy – share only city-level location, hide your location, or turn off background updating at any time.
And like many Google services, you can also use Latitude on your computer by going to google.com/latitude for all the same essential features. If you like the idea of being able to
stalk keep track of your friends’ whereabouts, download this free app now for your iPhone.
