Google’s location check-in service Latitude is making good progress recently and had recently announced check-ins for Latitude on Android. Starting today, you can enjoy check-ins from Google Latitude on your iPhone too.
Google announced that check-ins have finally been added to its Google Latitude iPhone app. Going on the same lines as its Android counterpart, if you have set Google Latitude to automatically update your location on your iPhone, it will automatically check you in and out based on your per-location preferences. Users can opt to check-in with friends and can also post it to web, on their Google Profile and on the web. Also Google encourages you to check-in frequently at your favorite places to become a Regular, VIP and Guru. Google has also announced that it will offer loyalty-based check-in rewards which you would be able to preview directly from Google Maps.
Google Latitude app with check-in requires you to have iOS4 and above and is available for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad and iPod Touch (3rd/4th generation). But background location updating is only available for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPad 3G.
