    It's similar to GFindster, which is in the Market right now. Basically it's map-based social networking. You set up your circle of people to share your location with, and then whenever you activate it on the map, you can see where your contacts are (and vice versa of course). It integrates with phone, SMS, and Google Talk. It also sounds like you can post status updates, like Facebook and Twitter (just to name a couple).

    Here's a link to Google's full page on the service:

    Latitude is stoopid (or I am). I try to add my wife, she gets an email that I am trying to add her, that she needs to sign on and add me. She signs on and adds me, I get an email saying she is trying to add me and I need to sign on and add her. neither of us seems able to actually add the other, we are just sending emails back and forth, through latitude, saying we are trying to add each other.

    Yeah, we just got it to work now that we're both home. Had to actually send the request to our gmail accounts (which I can't log onto at work). Kinda anticlimactic really.

    Google Latitude is compatible with most devices running Android, BlackBerry OS, Windows Mobile, Symbian s60, and the iPhone.[5][6] However, inability to run background application in iPhone limit usability of Google Latitude in iPhone platform.

    Initially Google promised on the Latitude page that it would be available for Java (J2ME) phones, but this claim was later removed from the site.

    Both the Sony Ericsson W995, C903 and C510 mobile phones support Google Latitude as part of their built-in Google Maps application. Although this is a J2ME application, it cannot be downloaded for use with other mobile phones.
