Google Latitude for iPhone Released but as an iPhone Web App

Unfortunately, since there is no mechanism for applications to run in
the background on iPhone (which applies to browser-based web apps as
well), we’re not able to provide continuous background location updates
in the same way that we can for Latitude users on Android, Blackberry,
Symbian and Window Mobile. Nevertheless, your location is
updated every time you fire up the app and then continuously updated
while the app is running in the foreground. And, of course, you can
check in on where your friends are, so we think there’s plenty of fun
to be had with Latitude.
