If you've ever needed to track down your Android-wielding friends on a night out, you'll be disappointed by this news: Google is playing the role of product serial killer once again, this time claiming Latitude as its latest victim.

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.
