Android: Google Maps rolled out some new features for its location-tracking Latitude app today, letting you view summaries of where you go and spend most of your time. It’s pretty cool — so cool, they make us actually want to use Latitude.
“Foursquare who?” asks Google, as they roll out 60 check-in offers in Austin, Texas, to coincide with the SXSW nerdfest. All users have to do is check into the business, say a cafe, and see if they’re offering any special deals.
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]
