Google Latitude is a nice way to track the location of your friends. It is currently not officially supported with webOS, but can be enabled by a special URL. Unfortunately Google Maps has to be running to update your own position.
This application makes it possible to update your location without having Google Maps running. You can start a background process which updates your location in a configurable interval. It does not require GPS to be enabled.
This application is licensed using the two clause BSD license
Contact me if you are interested in translating the app into your native language. You don't need to have any programming skills to do a translation.
- Add translations for more languages
- Add the ability to track, i.e. your position is updated as it has changed and not updated if you don't move (this is how Latitude on Android works)
- Add support for Mode Switcher
- Authorization sometimes fails. Not sure if it is an app-related problem.
When authorizing the application you will be redirected to a Google website. There you will be asked to authorize webos.laesche.net to read and update your location. This is because anonymous users do not work with Google Latitude. All authentication tokens and other authentication information will be stored on the device only. The site webos.laesche.net will not be used.
You can download the latest version of the app from the homebrew app gallery (http://www.precentral.net/homebrew-a...titude-updater), from my website(http://webos.laesche.net/doku.php/en...titude_updater) and via Preware.
