Google's Latitude service is about to enter the way of its now-defunct brother Google Reader. Today, Google announced that it would be canceling its Latitude service effective August 9 as a result of a Google Maps for mobile update.
Google Latitude is a location-aware application that allows users to share where they are with others. This has long been a major feature of Android and allows the friends to share their locations with each other. Google says that any third-party application that made use of the Latitude API will cease to function on August 9 as well.
