Top 3 Latitude Apps for Android


      Google Latitude came up with their location-detection utility in 2010 . Since
then  it has been one of the most searched terms on the internet. A number of
Google Latitude Apps have sprung up in the Android Market and we are here
reviewing the top 3 Latitude Apps in the Android market.

       One thing that distinguishes Google Latitude Apps from other Location detection GPS based apps is accuracy and the use of Wi-fi , Cell tower detetction and A-Gps(Smartphones inbuilt gps also called Assisted Gps.) simultaneously giving an accuracy of around 50-100 metres .

features which makes it stand out from the crowd . This app allows you to
share your location with your friends through Twiiter ,Facebook, Buzz, Email.
