PlaceTrack is the best full-featured background updater for Google Latitude. Can even get your friends location from Foursquare and Facebook or automatically check you In!
HOW IT COMPARES WITH OTHER CLIENTS
✓ battery usage is excellent: PlaceTrack uses SLC mode (Significant Location Change), NOT continuos background. PlaceTrack is suspended in the background most of the time and does not use cpu cycles
✓ Check In and Auto Check In support (to Foursquare and Facebook). Auto Check-In uses the new iOS geofencing features. Your friends' checkins are shown on map and you can view StreetView images or Foursquare photos for their location
✓ can save location history locally and can export kml to files or other installed apps (Google Earth, etc)
✓ delayed Latitude sync: stores your locations when you're offline, push them to your Latitude history when you're back online
✓ keeps Google Latitude up-to-date with your exact location: install the app and forget about it!
✓ Foursquare and Facebook support: see your friends' checkins on the map or automatically check-in to Foursquare or Facebook
✓ location sharing on Twitter, SMS, Email, Facebook
✓ optional location history and KML export: you can export past locations by email (as a KML file) or to other installed app (eg. Google Earth)
✓ battery friendly background mode: the application suspends on exit and is woken up only when you move significantly (detected using cell towers signal); most of the time it just sleeps and the GPS hardware is powered off to preserve battery
✓ uses the official Latitude API, authentication and authorization flow is based on OAuth2 (and 2-step verification is ok)
✓ automatic relaunch: if the application gets killed for whatever reason (eg, after a power cycle) and background mode was enabled, the application is automatically relaunched in the background on the first location change event
✓ fake location support: you can disable GPS usage completely and input a fake place name to be used as your location
✓ security: your credentials are securely transmitted from your iPhone directly to the services and never sent to our or any third party servers
✓ you can tune most configurable parameters (gps accuracy, timeouts, local notifications, etc)

The app works very well - install and forget kind of app. Its very battery friendly. Fast location detection (even inside buildings) and very fast start. I like it.
Thanks for getting a new version out so fast to fix the network update error
This app is much better then the official google client so far. If I look at my track on the history page of latitude and it is much more accurate on days using this app then the other client. With the other client there are points several miles away from anywhere I traveled. Imp
Icons were hard to press but new update fixed this! I only wanted it for the background updating anyway which is flawless!Previous bad reviews are due to a bug that was fixed in iOS 4.2, not the developers fault!
5 star being able to upload position in background
So glad this finally got approved. The app is wonderfully coded to save on battery. However, I would like to see some documentation in the app on what exactly would be posted on Facebook and when.I no longer have any reason to jailbreak my phone. Awesome app!

If you need something that will track your location in the background, this is it. Has worked perfectly for me for years.
