With Android users already being able to check-in with Latitude, Google just updated their Latitude iOS app to include check-ins there too. Similar to Foursquare, it lets you become a Regular, VIP or Guru the more times you visit a place.

After briefly appearing in Japan's App Store, Google's Latitude app is now in your App Store - and this time, it doesn't look like an accident. Stalk friends! Be stalked! It's free!
Despite the fact that it's opt-in and has decent privacy settings, I find Google Latitude's location history dashboard a bit creepy. It now gives step-by-step views of where I've been and even knows how many total miles I've travelled.
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.
Google already knows too much about me, yet Google Latitude's Location History and Location Alerts features are still creepy. But they're useful, because together they learn your usual hangouts and know when you don't need notifications of who's nearby.
