Knowing where you are will give you the answer to the “where is” question.

Recent developments in GPS positioning technologies could drive revenues from mobile location-based services to more than $12.7 billion by 2014, according to a new report published by Juniper Research.

Revenues will come from sales of apps through application stores and other channels, but also from mobile advertising tied to those apps. In fact, the Juniper report notes that advertising will likely form an increasing share of Mobile Location Based Services-related revenues over the next five years.

In the words of co-author Dr Windsor Holden:“Location-based applications are extremely interesting for brands and retailers in that they allow those companies to direct consumers to outlets in their vicinity while simultaneously providing information about the products on offer. When these are allied to measures such as mobile coupons and vouchers, you have the combination of information and financial incentive which can be compelling for consumers.”

Enterprises making noise in the LBS space:

Mobile question and answer startup ChaCha is on a roll, possibly achieving profitability, raising boatloads of money, and even venturing into social media with a Facebook app. Today, ChaCha is getting into the business listings game with local business search company Localeze. Localeze will provide ChaCha’s website with in-depth information about more than 15 million businesses across the country.

ChaCha.com visitors can access the local business listings in a search bar and through a direct listings page.

And of course, any questions and answers related to the business can be found on the content pages. Business listings can also be viewed by category and or state and city. Eventually, ChaCha’s listings will be integrated with its chachacoupons.com site.

Peanut Labs Media launches Cherry Deals.  Cherry Deals tracks location when users buy virtual goods when playing social games and offers deals on real goods.

Google’s operating system for cellphones has overtaken Nokia’s Symbian system as the market leader. In the three months through December, manufacturers shipped 33.3 million cellphones running Android, Google’s free, open-source cellphone operating system, up from just 4.7 million a year earlier, according to Canalys, a research firm in Reading, England.

Analysts said the figures represented a tectonic shift in the industry, cementing the influence of Google’s advertising-driven business on the mobile Internet. And this year, according to the research firm Gartner, more people will gain access to the Internet through mobile devices than with personal computers.

Three popular GPS tracking apps from LOCiMOBILE are available from the Android Marketplace that have downloaded

More Mobile Users Now Accessing Maps via Application than via Browser

comScore a leader in measuring the digital world, today released a study on mobile map usage based on data from its comScore MobiLens service. The study found that 14 percent of mobile users in the U.S. accessed maps on their devices in April 2010, as the mobile map audience reached 33.5 million users, up 44 percent from the previous year. The study also found that more mobile users now access maps via application than via browser, demonstrating the success of applications in penetrating the mobile map market.

Smartphone users drove growth in both application and browser map usage with app access nearly tripling to 12.7 million smartphone users, while browser map access surged 93 percent to nearly 9 million smartphone users. The number of mobile map app users first surpassed mobile map browser users in February 2010. Today, the “where is” question has more answerers and even more answers.

I believe that citizen socialization is being advanced by personal wireless location based technologies that speaks to a future rich with opportunities for saving lives, enhancing the quality of our lifestyles and providing us with sustainable experiences that reduce our energy consumption while enhancing our social and business engagements with one another.

While GPS applications are currently carrier platform specific, they are politically agnostic and will prove to be the seed of countless applications that even SciFi aficionados have not imagined, but that legislators are beginning to realize are essential tools in reducing health care costs, improving personal security, building consumer consensus and communication franchises that abet the stimulation of local businesses.

Quantitative proof of the frequency of the “where” question being asked

 Among all smartphone users, the most popular app among feature phone users is Google Maps (46%) followed closely by Facebook (45%). The simplest conclusion to be drawn from the data is that “where” is my; friend, family, spouse or co-worker must be top of mind for multi-millions and the GPS Tracking app to resolve that question is to be found at LOCiMOBILE, a subsidiary of GTXCorp (GTXO.OB).

Where they are asking the “where” question is now going vehicular…

The number of consumers using telematics smartphone apps with connected cars is about to increase over 40 times in the next five years. ABI Research today estimates that by 2016, 129 million people will use smartphone software that works with a vehicle, up from only 3.2 million consumers this year. Such forecasts could fuel new and innovative mobile apps specific to vehicles and travel-related activities.

Smartphone applications specific to cars may best illustrate the promise of mobility and connectivity: intelligent, discreet devices combined with wireless broadband and smarter cars. While there have been a number of in-vehicle applications for years — think of navigation, point-of-interest searches, real-time traffic data and remote automobile diagnostics — most until now have been constrained for use within the vehicle.

By leveraging the ability for a smartphone to be tied with a car, such apps can move beyond in-car use. And as vehicles gain more processors and sensors, especially in greener cars as noted in a GigaOM Pro report, (subscription required), the possibilities for mobile apps will expand.

So what kinds of mobile apps will connect smartphone-toting drivers with their cars? Ford already launched software specific to its all-electric Ford Focus, allowing users to remotely monitor the battery level and even schedule a recharge during off-peak rate hours. Location Labs, in a partnership with T-Mobile, today launched software that can detect when a driver is behind the wheel of a vehicle and automatically shoot calls direct to voicemail or lock down access to text messaging. Focused on driver safety, the new app appears to monitor vehicle movement through GPS, but in the future, could get that data directly from the car. Whatever the application, mobile broadband and smart handsets combined with the cars of tomorrow could give new meaning to the term “information superhighway.”

 

Seems like everyone is saying; “got to have my Samsung!”

Samsung announced last week that the company is looking sell more than 60 million smartphones in 2011, 40 million or three times as many as 2010.

Samsung anticipates the majority of its sales to come from their Galaxy portfolio of phones which utilize the company’s proprietary BADA platform. GTXCorp was specifically asked by the company to make its GPS Tracking Apps available to Samsung customers.

GTX Corp  (GTXO) has been keeping pace with the smartphone trend developing a portfolio of GPS Tracking and GPS based LOCiMOBILE applications that eschew the public commercialism of Four Square and Gowalla for a robust, private set of functional apps that provide easy to access permission based location information.

2010 was a big year for Google’s Android mobile operating system, as it moved at a lightning pace from a minority position into the position of most popular operating system in the United States. Still, when retrospectives are put together for “best apps of the year” lists, editors often make choices that seem obvious. We’ve put one together for 2010 that hopefully avoids the more self-explanatory choices.

LOCi
— This GPS tracking app is available for $2.99 in the Android Market, but has the option for a $29.99 annual subscription mode that lets you switch on private, real-time tracking. This lets one user track another user’s location live through a desktop Web browser without sharing that location with anyone else.

Going out and checking-in doesn’t have to mean you are going public

 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.
