    Almost like the Sunset Squad from Futurama, no?

    I liked Latitude. It seems G+ update meets my needs though so I should be fine. Seems they need to add check-ins though.

    I had to Bing Google Latitude to know what it was.

      LMBO!! Yeah, it was a small feature not many used.

    Google Latitude is basically their version of “Find My Friends”.

    They’ve already got a replacement that integrates with G+ on the way. Should be here next month. https://plus.google.com/+jlapenna/posts/deBP7kj7rMi

      It’s already on Android’s G+.

        Based on LaPenna’s message, it looks like they’ll have something additional, G+Location. Curious to see what it is. I hope they bring back explicit checkins.

          You know, I initially thought something else was coming to it as well but I got a G+ update w/ Locations in it. It is far from Lat though.

          +1 for checkins.
