Submission + - Latitude Arrives On The iPhone With A Whimper

nick_davison writes: The long anticipated Google Latitude location service has finally arrived on the iPhone with something of a whimper. Their blog, whilst trying to remain tactful, says it best, "We worked closely with Apple to bring Latitude to the iPhone in a way Apple thought would be best for iPhone users. After we developed a Latitude application for the iPhone, Apple requested we release Latitude as a web application in order to avoid confusion with Maps on the iPhone, which uses Google to serve maps tiles."
