Google to kill location-sharing mobile app `Latitude`
Sydney: Search engine giant Google is reportedly going to shut down service of its location mobile app, Latitude, by 9 August.
According to Sydney Morning Herald, Latitude allows users to let others know where they are through the use of their smartphone`s GPS.
Google has asked its users who want to share their locations to use Google+ app on Android and said that the location sharing feature will be added to the iPhone version of Google+ very soon.
After shutting down the service of its much popular Google Reader, Latitude is the latest in the company`s list of services shut down.
Google has axed down a lot of services when it rolls out new products, like Google + replaced the Google Buzz, Google Talk was replaced with Google Hangouts and Google Video was replaced with the popular YouTube.
iGoogle, a user-customised Google home page, is set to close this year because many users no longer use such start pages, the report added.
