Google Kills (beta) Location Alerts Feature in Latitude
The official statement:
The experimental Location Alerts (beta) app was retired in December, 2010. Retiring features is always a tough decision, but part of building experimental features is picking the best ones on which to focus. Rest assured, we’re continuing to develop apps such as Location History as well as the Latitude API to enable the developer community to create even more ways for you to use Latitude.
I guess the feature, called “creepy” by some didn’t get wide enough use, perhaps because Latitude itself is so underused. Good to know Google killed it before (if?) Latitude ever gets to matter.
