ALTitude is a Google Latitude updater designed to minimize the battery drain and replace Latitude.

Make sure to "Enable location sharing" in GMaps settings and set "Location Reporting" to "location manually selected on the map" so that you can keep using Latitude to locate your friends on the map without having the energy overhead of Latitude.

*Sadly Latitude is being discontinued by Google. As a result I have retired the donate version*

ALTitude relies an OAuth2 for authentication against Google Latitude and does not store any username or password.
