There are now over 6,000 location-based iPhone apps, 900 for the Android and 300 more BlackBerry apps. Only 43 of these location-based apps are currently available across all three mobile platforms – still fewer offer both free and paid versions. Eliminating the apps that are specific to travel and the ones supported by sharing your data with retailers – the social location aware app found on 300,000 smartphones in 80 countries is GPS Tracking.

GPS Tracking is really catching on fast. It’s number 3 on the top grossing app list, and number 7 most downloaded app.
It’s no wonder really. The app is so useful. It’s very simple. Find your friends fast using GPS Technology. We’ve been waiting for this technology to become affordable and available to everyone. Now it is.
“GPS Tracking one of the must-have-apps in my arsenal.” Joel M.
Every Portfolio manager I’ve ever known loves to find a sector with wind at it’s back..the early users of the “CrackBerry” knew (Nasdaq: RIMM) was the stock he/she needed to invest in because every person on Wall Street had one. This phenomena doesn’t occur often and RIMM”s are as rare as Australopithecus. I observe the current app craze as the new cycle for lightning quick revenues based on the size of the market itself. Certainly anyone with an iPhone or Android phone has imagined that they could build an app when they got home that night…I know I did.
I can tell you from experience that when Kleiner Perkins doubles the size of its venture fund specific to app’s you know your watching the ship turning in the harbor. This is a unique space with wind at it’s back and certainly the app’s market is a niche to watch, we found this company and had a chance to speak with Patrick Bertagna at GTX Corp (OTCBB:GTXO) its Founder/ Chairman and CEO. He had some interesting comments about how the company has evolved and found some traction with its wholly owned subsidiary LOCiMOBILE Inc. Bertagna commented “With 500 million smart phones entering the market place, I believe we are at the tip of the next disruptive wave. Apps will become as ubiquitous as the device they live on and that makes this new frontier a game changer” Certainly being on the iTunes top ten highest grossing list puts us at the forefront of this coming wave.”

The current iPhone is unable to run third-party applications in the background which limits certain types of apps, such as location-based services. However, rumors suggest that the iPhone OS software 4.0 revision will support foreground and background performance while preserving battery life. The same rumor says it will arrive this summer, while iPad users will have to wait until the fall…But, you don’t have to wait until that long if you download the GPS Tracking app. It’s a peer to peer messaging app running in the foreground and able to locate anyone or everyone in your contact list with a single click and now it can share a photo with its point to point locates. So if you need to know now, now you know where to find everyone you know.
Apple introduced the Top Grossing Downloads list to highlight differences between Top Downloaded and Top Revenue generating apps. GPS Tracking from LOCiMOBILE® makes both lists.
According to the analysts at research firm Gartner, mobile application stores are expected to generate revenues of nearly $7 billion over the course of this year. (This is more than double their previous forecast)
Nearly a third of all apps downloaded today are purchased, compared with just 18 percent a year ago.
That figure is a combination of the $6.2 billion spent purchasing the mobile applications themselves combined with an additional $.6 billion generated through advertising revenues from in-app ads. Not surprisingly, Apple dominates this market, accounting for 99.4% of the market as of last year, states the report.
New revenue options are forecast: Up until now, App Store vendors have worked around the lack of a paid upgrade feature by offering different “versions” of their apps. Developers have been asking for an option like this since the beginning of the App Store — it looks like Apple might finally be listening.
The initial estimate of iPad sales is close to 6 million units by the end of 2010 and the GPS Tracking app can be found in the iTunes store available on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Locimobile’s most popular app, GPS Tracking made the Top Grossing App list on iTunes.
Available on iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android, GPS Tracking is a real “must have” app. Coming soon to BlackBerry.
