Google Latitude has been around for a couple of years now, but today it’s finally fulfilled its destiny as yet another place you can check in online. You know, after you’ve already hit up Foursquare and Facebook.
Initially, there was fear that a Latitude app would be confusing to people who use Google Maps. Not for the Japanese, however, who had a brief taste of the app before it got pulled. Can we expect one soon? [TechCrunch]
While it was initially suggested that Google Latitude was rejected from the app store to keep iPhone users from confusing it with Maps, this new patent shows that Apple might be working on their own friend- and ex-girlfriend-tracking app.
