Referring the news source at ‘http://justanotheriphoneblog.com/wordpress/” , now iPhone will be equipped with Google’s Location based social networking application latitude. There are some threats to install this application on mobile iPhone because Apple does not allow any third party application to run in the background as Windows Mobile, Android and Blackberry allows.

Google Lattitude For iPhone

To update our location on iPhone, we have to follow some easy steps:

1) Install Mobile safari on iPhone

2) navigate to www.google.com/latitude

3) Allow Safari to access my location information

On the iPhone platform, Google Latitude is one of those features that’s kind of fun to play with for a few minutes, before being relegated to the less-than-useful category. Until Google and Apple come up with a way to enable automatic and behind-the-scenes location updates, I just don’t see this service taking off and being very useful.

My hope is that Google will eventually add the Latitude functionality into the existing native Maps app, so we don’t have to use two different apps for very similar functionality. Perhaps at that time, with a more tightly-integrated solution, Google Latitude will be more useful.
