A new app that will free users from being constantly tracked by the GPS system on their cell phone has been launched for owners of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Fake-A-Location allows users to pinpoint a place using Google Maps, and then send it via an email or text as their “current location”.

Users of the app can impress their friends when they seem to be everywhere at once like hip parties, political events, and big ticket events. Giving the illusion to be somewhere else has never been so easy, husbands can pop in the bar to catch the last minutes of the football game while pretending to be at the supermarket.

Fake-A-Location 1.0 is on the App Store for only $0.99. iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch required with OS 3.0 or later.
