Some great improvements and additions to the already stable and robust app include the following.
By popular demand, LOCiMOBILE has added the text messaging feature because sometimes you need to send a little note along with your location. Now you can send text with your map. For example, “I’m running 5 minutes late” or “I’m just around the corner” or “I brought your check”. Text messaging is one of the handy new features in the GPS Tracking App.
Turn by Turn Directions
GPS Tracking allows you to see your location on the map, and to see your friend’s location on the map. Now you can get convenient turn by turn directions provided by Google Maps service. This service generally gives you the “fastest possible route” to your friend. You can even choose to view heavy traffic zones, which to avoid.
Pin Point Accuracy with Privacy
GPS Tracking is a very useful app for both iPhone and Android platforms. It’s easy to use. Provides a quick and easy map to your contacts. The privacy feature allows you to ignore requests from friends when you’re busy or don’t want to be found. Only send your location to those you trust.
More than 1,000 people visited emergency rooms in 2008 because they were distracted and accidently tripped, bumped or ran into something while talking or texting on their cellphone. That was twice the number from 2007, which had nearly doubled from 2006, according to a study conducted by Ohio State University (NYT).
There is a growing problem; DISTRACTION — A potentially injurious combination of a PERSON, with a MOBILE PHONE and an OBSTACLE like other people, the pole of a street sign, a toy left on the steps, a parked or even a moving vehicle.
“It’s the tip of the iceberg,” said Jack L. Nasar, a professor at Ohio State, noting that the number of mishaps will most likely increase as texting is rising sharply and devices like the iPhone have thousands of new, engaging applications.
However, certain iPhone and Android Apps reduce the likelihood that you will become an accident statistic. Check out GPS TRACKER. It will provide the precise location of one or all of those in your contact list and send a TXT MSG along with the location (LOCi) request – not only combining two tasks into one, but just in case you walk into an object larger than yourself, you’ll be able to alert friends or family of your location and the inconceivable happenstance.
By the way, if cell phone multi-tasking has become a habit, then you might also want to take a look at Code Amber’s Alertag – A secure digital personal ID tag that will provide first responders to emergencies with the vital information needed to make an informed treatment assessment as well as who to call.
We think it’s a good idea to anticipate the unexpected.
It is unimaginable that all the people, places and things in your life could disappear in an instant. But in Haiti, parents have lost their children. Children have lost their families. Survivors walk about aimlessly carrying remnants of their former lives. Tens of thousands are sleeping in the streets. Rescue teams look for the lost and those that lost their lives as a result of the cataclysmic quake that gave no warning.
It could happen here. It could happen to you. It has happened before. It will happen again. Be prepared. Protect your family from the inconceivable.
Americans have donated more than $8 million for Haiti relief via TXT message. The online donation system allows people to donate $10 at a time by texting HAITI to 90999.
