 Forrester found that check-in users were predominantly male which tells us that there are many women not using check-in service using because of safety and privacy concerns.

That’s why the very smart folks at LOCiMOBILE came up with iCheck-In ™. The non-app that tells who you want where you are, what your doing and how they can get from where they are to where you are.  Now you can share with some, but not all and keep your privacy private.

It’s important to note that while check-in apps haven’t gone main stream yet, that doesn’t mean they never will. As Pew noted in its report, there was a time when Twitter wasn’t popular either – as of 2008 only 6% of adults used Twitter. In just two years its user base has grown to 24%. Check-in apps will in all probability see a similar trend.

For those penny stock investors, LOCiMOBILE is a business unit of GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO.OB) which utilizes GPS and cellular location platforms enabling subscribers to track the whereabouts of; people, pets, vehicles or assets in real-time through its proprietary end to end solutions through smartphone apps, middleware, viewing portals and now, iCheck-in.. Check it out.

The nobody’s else’s business, but your own – social check-in with extras.

The U.S. smartphone market is booming. Nearing the end of the third quarter a range of analyst firms have posted their current figures on the market.

The figures do provide a clear picture of which platforms are accelerating in the U.S. smartphones market and from which platforms market share is being lost.

For developers these trends are essential for planning and development of new app and for what platform they will be offered. LOCiMobile has 17 apps which are currently available on multiple smartphone platforms.
