    Slightly irritated it doesn't just embed into maps, but the webapp is very well done! Adding it as a home screen icon gives you a nice latitude icon too so it looks native.

    I'm confused. Doesn't safari remain open even when closed? I know I can download and stream data while its closed so why doesnt the GPS update?

    Seems to me that the Google Mobile Blog's content already is a slap in Apple's face. They mention that they tried to make a native app and Apple rejected it, firmly shifting all the blame in Apple's lap. Secondly, the specifically mention by name all the other platforms that can run GL in the background (which happens to be every other platform). These two items really didn't need to be explicitly stated to introduce GL to the iPhone. Seems to me they did it purposely to knock Apple.
