Requirements: Android 2.1+
Overview: Latify is a feature-rich Google Latitude client for Android, supporting offline sync, background GPS updates, user location sharing (Twitter, Facebook, Buzz, Email, SMS) and history visualisation and tracking on a map and much much more.
Update your location in the background at all times. Sync your location changes either in realtime or delayed (when no internet connectivity is available). Republish your current location at a user defined interval when stationary, making sure your friends (and Google Latitude) always have an up to date view on your location.
In addition to Google Latitude, Latify can also sync your location changes in realtime with a Google Fusion table, allowing you to share your location with other (even non-Latitude) friends.
You can disable the realtime updates to Latitude when roaming abroad, or when running on a low volume 3G or GPRS data connection. You can opt to automatically sync your location updates when a WIFI connection is available to avoid unnecessary costs. Upon arriving home, or at the hotel, use your free WIFI connection to upload all your location data to Google Latitude.
By doing so, you'll allow Google Latitude to form a more accurate view on your current and past location changes, allowing for a more useful and accurate analysis in your Latitude dashboard (time at home, time at work, places visited.....).

* No need to keep Latify running in order to record location changes.
* Easy-to-use profiles (driving, at home, travelling) help you determining the best location polling and location update strategy.

* When abroad, disable real-time updates if expensive roaming data rates apply. Instead, record your location changes on your phone, and as soon as WIFI is available, upload and synchronize your location changes to Google Latitude.
* Share your location via email, SMS, Twitter, Facebook, Google Buzz.
