    If someone in the US bought it using your account info and then sent it to you would that work?

    Or if someone was willing they could authorize you as one of their 5 computer authorized for stuff.

    Or maybe you have a friend in the US and they'd let you screenshare download it send it to you and then you can log out? (then you'll know they didn't abuse your credentials)

    I think you have lots of options but you'll need someone who can trust you / you can trust.

    I like loopt.

    The problem with that is you'd get a copy that's associated with the account we purchased it from. Even if it is free. I think.

    Is anyone having problems with Loopt locating you? I have no problem with the iPhone Map app locating me via GPS but Loopt seems to constantly time out.

    What could be the cause of this?

    I do see that they are using MS Virtual Earth? Kind of ironic no?

    Is there a paid version of Loopt? I hate the ads in there and would easily pay a small fee just to get rid of the ads. Or, is there another similar paid app?

    Thanks!

    Hate to sound like a commercial, but is there an app for that (for the iPhone)?

    I saw the one for the G1, another app that didn't look like what I wanted, but couldn't find what was described in the Google Latitude in the app store.

    Any info appreciated. Latitude looks exactly like what I want, but not sure it's available for the iphone.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the info. (No thanks to Apple)

    The icon really sucks tho, but thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
