Google Latitude Now on iPhone

Jay Google LatitudeOk iPhone equipped stalkers!!

Google Latitude has finally arrived for the Apple handheld 🙂

All you have to do is head to m.google.com/latitude, let Google use your location and you’re sorted!

Your location will appear on a Google map within the browser, with Latitude appearing as a tab next to Gmail and GCal.

Add any friends that you want to share your every movement with by choosing from your Gmail contacts or typing in their email address and they’ll receive a link to the mobile site, where they can sign up themselves and view your location.

You can switch between map and satellite view and get directions. There’s even an option to view traffic.

Clicking a contact’s icon presents the option to send an email, get directions to the contact’s location, and change the precision of location information you’d like to share with the person.

The options are:

  • best available location
  • only city-level location
  • hide from this friend

Because it’s an opt-in service and you have to invite or approve anyone before they can see your location – so not so much on the stealthy stalkage then 😉

Thankfully you can also turn your location off at any time.

It would’ve been a handy thing to use at the Latitude Festival last week – hmm.. Latitude at Latitude!

Genius!

Although it all depends on your mobile signal and GPS – which was a bit on/off in Suffolk.
