Google Latitude on the iPhone: There's an App for That (on Safari. Ew.)

by , Comments

Google has announced the launch of Latitude for the iPhone. If you're not familiar, Latitude is a tool that lets you share your whereabouts and find friends geographically (because Facebook and Twitter haven't gotten TMI enough).

You won't find it in the App Store, and it's not a native app like Google Maps. No, dear iPhone readers, you must browse to it on the mobile Safari browser.

A native app was developed, according to the rumoriffic TechCrunch. It's not clear why that wasn't at least released in the App Store.

Unless...

Apple and Google are trying to show how anti-anticompetitive they are. After all, they are under investigation for possible monopolistic ties.

For now, you'll have to launch the good-ol Safari browser to reveal your current location and to stalk your friends.
