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. Then evan410 found a way that is even better.
This unofficial app just launches Google Latitude for iPhones. Now, at some point Latitude will catch on that you are not an iPhone and stop working. The trick is to make Latitude think you are an iPhone!
Just install the iPhone user agent spoof patch using these WebOS Quick Install Instructions: 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. A Side benefit of the iPhone Spoof patch is that thousands of websites will suddenly look great on your Pre or Pixi.
Have fun with Google Latitude!
Thank you to kmax12 for creating this app as well as BreakOut, PreTracker, and other great apps.
