Are you a Google Latitude user? No? Well, neither am I. But if you are and you own an iPhone 4/3GS, you’ll be happy to know that it’s now officially an app that’s available for your iOS device. Yes, Google Latitude is now ready for download at the App Store. For $0.
For those of you unfamiliar with this Google offering, Latitude is basically a free service that allows you to located your fellow Latitude users on a map. Worried about privacy? Fear not as this is all opt-in. Meaning, you’ll need to authorize people before they can follow you, and vice-versa for those people you want to follow.
And if you don’t want to be followed, there’s also a Hide Location option you can enable. Cool, right?
Here’s a video to better show how useful this new nifty little app is:
With Google Latitude, you can now say goodbye to Wru? SMS messages. Well, maybe not completely, but at least it’ll help.
Google Latitude is compatible with the iPhone 4/3GS, iPad, 3G/4G iPod touch with at least iOS 4.0 installed. Sorry, iPhone 3G and 1G/2G iPod touch owners, you’re out of luck with this one. But don’t lose hope. They did reveal over at the Google Mobile blog that they’re “continuing to work on expanding support to more devices” so there’s still a chance you might get to enjoy Latitude on your old iOS device in the near future.
