Google announced a “new “Google Latitude API,” — an easy and safe way for you to use and reuse your Latitude location with any apps or services that you can imagine! Developers could, for e.g., build apps or services for: Thermostats that turn on & off automatically when you’re driving towards or away from home; Traffic that send alerts if there’s heavy traffic ahead of you or on a route you usually take based on your location history; Your credit card accounts to alert you of potential fraud when a purchase is made far from where you actually are; Photo albums so your vacation photos appear on a map at all the places you visited based on your location history,” noted Google.
Developer, go here to get started and read documentation. Join Latitude API Google Group to ask questions. Latitude user, check out existing Latitude apps and keep an eye on future apps and services for your Latitude location. If you haven’t started using Latitude yet, get started so you too can start using your location in new ways.
