This is crazy, first Google wave now Google reader and what latitude as well. What is Google doing!?

Will you at least open source the Latitude API so that we can run it on our own servers?

What does this mean for you and your users?

On August 9th, 2013, programmatic access to the API, including Location History data, will no longer be available. 

End users will also no longer be able to access location data or manage Latitude privacy controls using your application(s).

Please notify your users of the upcoming changes and modify your application(s) if necessary.

You may find some additional information in this article.

Thank you for creating applications that use Google Latitude.  It's never an easy decision to deprecate an API, but we appreciate your understanding and continued support of our Google Maps APIs.
