Every app, that want to do something, that could take more than 10s, MUST open a card or a dashboard notification, otherwise webOS will kill it.

I could add that option but it would cause the location not to be not always updated because applications without a window (or a dashboard widget) will be killed by the system after a time.

This is a known problem which i encounter too. It will be fixed in the next version. If the update takes to long, the widget will be killed (this interval will be configurable). This will stop the current update process but will not prevent the next update process from being successful.

Oh, right, forgot about that. Perhaps it could show the window or widget just briefly before it starts the process, instead of showing it, then executing the process, then hiding it - so that if the process hangs, you aren't left with a widget etc. hanging around on the screen?

Great! Glad to hear it!

Has this been fixed? I don't see any updates after this post.

Great app. Hoping to use it on my daughters phone (Palm Pixi Plus).

This app has come in handy in the past, but now that it is broken because of changes to the Google Latitude API, will an updated version be released soon? Would donating help?

Thanks.
