Google Latitude Comes To The iPhone

Google Latitude, the geo-location based social network made its debut early last year. After being blocked from the App Store by Apple, Google Latitude is finally being released for the iPhone.

Google Latitude, which launched in February 2009, was not available on the iPhone after Apple asked the search engine giant not develop an iOS App to avoid user confusion between the integrated Maps Application. After living 2-years as a web App, Google Latitude was finally allowed to be developed for iOS devices and was recently approved for the App Store. The App supports real-time location updating even when it’s not running.
