Originally I developed this service only for my personal needs: I’ve got a Windows Mobile phone and it had no native Brightkite application as iPhones and Android-based phones. At the same time I had the Google Maps application with Google Latitude support so I searched for a way to pull my location from Google Latitude and post it to Brightkite. When I got it working I thought that it could be somewhat useful for other people and wrapped the core into the application designed for Google App Engine.
