Google quietly added check-ins to Google Latitude, taking on Foursquare in the local check-in game.
Currently Google Latitude users can check-in via their iPhone and Android apps, and view check-ins via their Google Latitude web app and dashboard.
I went through the Google Latitude API to see if an endpoint was added for check-ins, but currently you can only work with a users current location as well as location history.
So for now its just an application feature, but I’m sure its only a matter of time before recording check-ins and pulling a users historical check-ins will be available via the API.
I’m curious to see what the new Google Latitude feature will do to change Foursquare’s game?
