Safari to Support Geolocation, Video Of Google Latitude Using Feature
Computerworld Blogs has picked up that iPhone 3.0′s Safari now includes Geolocation info. The new API allows web applications to utilize the iPhone’s CoreLocation information to determine a user’s location. The new feature can be used for any number of things, such as finding nearby restaurants or automatically filling out your Zip code in a form.
Google Latitude, Google’s recently announced location-based social networking service, requires the user’s location information to place them on a map. The Latitude team recently announced that they’d be building the iPhone version as a web app instead of going through the App Store. During a presentation of the service, it was said that Latitude would be using Safari’s built-in Geolocation information. Video below.
