Google Latitude is a free service that lets you see where your Google Contacts are in real-time, on a Google Map. The service has been available for Android for a while, and PC users can configure a setting in a web browser to let their computers send location data to Google. But an iPhone app has been noticeably absent… until now.

Google has finally released a Latitude app for iOS, which is available as a free download from the App Store.

The app supports multitasking in iOS 4.x which lets Latitude run in the background and track your location even when the app is closed. Just make sure to disable background updating or hide your location if you don’t want people to know where you are.

You can check out a demo video after the break.
