While there was clearly the announcement of an replacement in kind of the feature’s integration within Google+, many wanted the same kind of Latitude experience back. No, Google itself isn’t bringing it back any time soon in its old form but as with Google Reader, third-party developers are coming to the rescue with alternatives to keep providing users with the exact same experience, or as close to it as possible, and Hemisphere is one such app that literally brings the Latitude experience returning to Android. Let’s keep an eye on at the app following the jump.

When you launch the app, you’ll be greeted with all the familiar-looking map interface, along with a ‘Me’ bubble representing where you are. Unfortunately, none of your respective friends will show up here automatically, and you’ll ought to add these phones the app yourself. Also, they’ll themselves need to be using the same app, and approve your request to see their location prior to getting to seem them for the map. To add someone, simply tap the very first button (from the left) inside the top bar.
