    Is there an app similar to Loopt, in that you can see where your friends? I would get Loopt, but it isn't in Canada.

    Thanks!

    The applications 'Whrrl' is VERY similar to that, allowing you to find your friends and see what they are up to. I'm not sure if that is available outside of the US though, check it out.

    doesn't look like it :-( I guess there are legal implications when it comes to this (tracking people, that is) , as well

    Have you heard of Navizon? It's the same thing. I know they support the UK. Not sure about anywhere else.

    Basically, they make an app for a Jailbroken 1.1.4 iPhone. I emailed them asking if they plan on supporting the iPhone 2.0 official firmware. This is what I received:

    Basically, when Apple enable background services, expect a flurry of these type of buddy-tracking apps.

    I hope so!

    I cannot believe that there are no buddy tracking apps in Canada yet.
