    Would you make an app that is just a link to Google Latitude?

    UPDATE: kmax12 has create this app: http://themxweb.com/blog/downloads/c..._0.0.1_all.ipk
    To install it, right-click on the link above and click Save As.... to a location you will remember. Open WebOS Quick Install and press the plus button [+] then select the file you just saved (com.themxweb.latitude_0.0.1_all.ipk) and click install.
    -------------------
    This app would use this icon (or something like it):



    and this link:

    http:/m.google.com/latitude

    So this way you would have a Google Latitude "App" in your Launcher that would look like this one in the bottom row:


    This app would require that the user first install the iphone user agent spoof patch using the WebOS Quick Install Instructions under "Patches".

    Ideally some future version would send the UserAgent plugin iphone spoof text:

    Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/4A102 Safari/419 (United States)

    I want to include this in an article I am writing. I understand that I could try to give them instructions on how to make this icon in their launchers themselves but it is quite a few steps.

    How much work would this "App" take?

    I can do this quickly. Just to check that I understand. You want an app that just opens up a website? The app will essentially duplicate the "Add to Launcher" functionality in the web browser app menu.

    UPDATE: Well, if what I wrote above is what you wanted, you can download the ipk here: http://themxweb.com/blog/downloads/c..._0.0.1_all.ipk

    EDIT: It doesn't include the iphone spoof text because I am not sure how to do that. If someone can chime in with how, I'll add it in.

    That's great!

    Let me ask Dieter if you can add it as an app. We have had two articles on Latitude and no word on when or if any Google apps other than maps will come to webOS.

    Thanks,

    Craig

    [EDIT] Dieter says to do it!

    Where can we get the Precentral app? It's not yet available in homebrews..

    Google Latitude shows you where your family and friends are. You can also tap a friend's icon to text or call them. Unfortunately Latitude is not yet intended to work on a Palm Pre or Pixi. But PreCentral member d.moss discovered how to get Latitude on a webOS phone!

    This unofficial app just gives you a Launcher icon for Google Latitude. Tap it for the iPhone version of Latitude. Great, but how do you make it think you are an iPhone?

    Just install the iPhone user agent spoof patch with WebOS Quick Install. Follow those instructions to be able to Homebrew if you haven't already. On the main WebOS Quick Install menu click Tools then Tweaks. Then check the iPhone user agent spoof patch. When it is ready click Restart Luna and then Close.

    That's it. You are ready to use your Google Latitude.

    Thank you to kmax12 for creating this app as well as BreakOut, PreTracker, and other great apps.

    When it is available in the Homebrew Gallery, it should be here: Google Latitude.
    Until it is available in the Homebrew Gallery, to install it, right-click on this link and click Save Target As.... Open the zip and extract the ipk file to a location you will remember. Open WebOS Quick Install and press the plus button [+] then select the file you just saved (com.themxweb.precentral_0.0.1_all.ipk) and click install.

    Why not make a shortcut like this that points to this address: as outlined in this post: http://www.precentral.net/how-get-tw...-without-patch ? That way, you would not need to install the iPhone user agent spoof patch.
