Google Latitude

Google today announced that it is retiring its Latitude Location-sharing service on August 9th, 2013. The company added that the products being retired will include Google Latitude in Google Maps for Android, Latitude for iPhone, the Latitude API, the public badge, the iGoogle Gadget, and the Latitude website at maps.google.com/latitude.

The move means you will no longer be able to share your location using Latitude once it’s retired next month. Moreover, the company says that it will delete your list of friends on Latitude, i.e. you won’t be able to see or manage friends. The changes will also apply to third party application, including applications that use the Latitude API.
