New Apps and Website Offer Real-Time GPS Tracking for Android® and BlackBerry® Users Share “Where”Anywhere with Live GPS Tracking

 

Los Angeles, CA, July 7, 2010– On the heels of passing 500,000 downloads, GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO.OB) unit LOCiMOBILE, Inc. is poised to launch a new series of GPS Tracking “apps” and web-based location services that solidify the company’s leadership position in the location-based social networking market.  Starting July 15th, users can download the full-featured BlackBerry® version of LOCiMOBILE’s new “Tracking” app, and subscribe to a web-based service that enables Android® and GPS-enabled BlackBerry users to be tracked from any laptop or desktop computer. The new GPS tracking apps and community portal website offer cross-platform, real-time live tracking of friends and family, kids and co-workers.
 
For the past two weeks, Android users have been able to download a free, limited version of the “Tracking” app from the Android marketplace. Unlike its fellow apps GPS Tracking and iLOCi2, which do not work in the background and require permission with each and every locate request, “Tracking” is live, continuous, real-time tracking, running in the background after the tracked user grants permission one time.
 
With the growing popularity of the new Android-OS phones, close to 115 models and global handset makers like Samsung Electronics entering the app space with their recent launch of bada, the LOCiMOBILE platform is well-positioned to increase its market share by providing cross-platform apps along with a web based portal to this burgeoning user community.  Share “where” anywhere with one push or click: LOCiMOBILE GPS Tracking Apps.
 
Tracking runs in the background on both smartphones and can report its location at user-selected intervals (every minute, five minutes, sixty minutes, and so on). Tracking is perfect to obtain the whereabouts of anyone a user cares for or trusts and wants to know where they are at all times. Tracking is opt-in and only possible if added users provide their consent, and user privacy is assured. The Tracking service costs $2.99 per month or $29.99 for a full year.
 
“Tracking represents a significant shift from LOCiMOBILE’s existing phone-to-phone technologies and offers both new opportunities for users and expanded subscription and advertising revenues for the Company,” explains GTX Corp. CEO Patrick Bertagna. “With downloads having crossed the half a million mark, and all the new app-ready GPS smartphones entering the market, the timing was right to launch our cross-mobile platform to this growing market.” 
 
“Our two-way GPS Tracking technology as seen on CBS News is already being used in shoes to monitor the elderly afflicted with dementia and in iPhone and iPad apps.” Bertagna concludes. “Real-time, continuous tracking operating in the background is a logical progression to help the Company maintain its competitive edge.”
 
ABI Research predicts that more than 550 million GPS-enabled handsets will be shipped by 2012. LOCiMOBILE®, with eight apps, downloaded in over 84 countries, continues to gain traction and momentum in what is estimated to be a $29 billion dollar market by end of 2013.

Thirty-percent of smart-phone subscribers downloaded applications and nearly two-thirds sent text messages

So says Firece Mobile’s Jason Ankeny

Smartphone ownership in the U.S. surpassed 49.1 million at the end of May 2010, an 8.1 percent increase over the previous three-month period, according to new data from market research firm comScore. Although Research In Motion’s BlackBerry operating system remains the dominant smartphone platform in the U.S., representing 41.7 percent of the market, its market share dropped 0.4 percent during the period as Google’s Android increased 4.0 percent to 13.0 percent. Android was the sole platform to grow its market share during the period: Apple’s iPhone slipped 1.0 percent to 24.4 percent, Palm’s webOS fell 0.6 percent to 4.8 percent and Microsoft’s Windows Mobile dropped 1.9 percent to 13.2 percent. comScore notes that despite losing share to Android, most smartphone platforms continued to gain subscribers during the period; the firm adds its data does not include Apple’s new iPhone 4, issued in June.

As smartphone penetration continues to grow, so too does mobile data usage–65.2 percent of U.S. subscribers sent and received text messages, up 1.4 percentage points over the previous three-month period, and 31.9 percent accessed their mobile browsers, up 2.3 percentage points. Thirty percent of subscribers downloaded applications (increasing 2.1 percent); 20.8 percent of users accessed social networks or blogs (up 2.6 percent); 22.5 percent played mobile games (up 0.7 percent); and 14.3 percent listened to music on their phones (increasing 1.2 percent).

LOCiMOBILE’s release of its “TRACKING” app utilizes new multitasking tools allowing it to run in the background…more apps, shared by more people running more of the time.

Blodget says: “Apple will sell 12 million iPhones to Verizon subscribers for $7 billion”

July 5, 2010 in GPS TRACKING APPS,GTXCORP,LOCiMOBILE | Comments (0)

Verizon Wireless, the largest U.S. mobile-phone company, will start selling Apple Inc.’s iPhone next year, closing out AT&T Inc.’s exclusive license on the smartphone in the U.S. – So say inside sources. Verizon could very well generate a 12 million net additional iPhone sales for Apple plus $3 in EPS per year—which isn’t included into current expectations.

In the first quarter of this year, a third of AT&T’s iPhone activations came from consumers new to the carrier. In the absence of those 900,000 new subscribers, ATT may have posted a loss in contract customers that quarter, analysts relayed.

Apple has sold more than 50 million iPhones since the smart-phone’s introduction in 2007. The latest version, iPhone 4, sold more than 1.7 million units in the first three days after its recent debut, a record for the product.

What does that mean for apps and devices running on the Android, Rim and Bada platforms? As the sophistication of these platforms and devices rises, so does the demand for their devices and downloads. More app developers will follow if for no other reason than the potential numbers. Open source is a great incentive and a competitive field provides options to those that don’t feel the love from APPL.

The greatest impact will be the inevitable migration to smart-phones which only have a 20% or so share of the total operating global devices, but show a 72% quarter on quarter increase.  We will see a further transition to data communications over voice. It may even come to pass that we drop the word “phone’ from the device vocabulary once ubiquity is achieved.

We believe that the greatest changes may not appear in devices, apps or even in the growth of revenues, but rather in the evolution of our social DNA. The opportunity for us to be aware of each others location using GPS technology in a safe, opt-in transparent fashion will forever alter our social interactions with merchants, business associates, friends, family and places…

Companies like GTX Corp and its LOCiMOBILE subsidiary, have found sincere interest for their miniaturized embedded technologies here and abroad addressing logistic, asset management, people tracking and social networking applications because everyone is asking the “where is” question and GTXO has the “where is” answer.

Real Time GPS Tracking

Real Time GPS Tracking

Not too long ago, Real-Time GPS Tracking was a gimmick in science fiction movies. Not any more! LOCiMOBILE introduces real-time GPS Tracking for Android and GPS Tracking for iPhone & Android.

 
Real-Time GPS Tracking for Android:  The app is called Tracking. Find it in the Android Market. Here’s how it works. Request permission to track your friends and family just one time and then the app runs in the background and will report its location on user set intervals (every 1 minute, 5 minutes, 60 minutes, etc.) Tracking is perfect to know the whereabouts of family members, friends and co-workers that you trust and care for and want to know where they are at all times. Tracking is only possible if your contact agrees to being located (give consent one time – users privacy is protected). Real-time Tracking is only possible on the Android/Blackberry as background processes are required. Download: For Android
 
Gps Tracking for iPhone and Android: GPS Tracking allows you to locate others and share your location via Google map with turn by turn directions. The app ensures privacy through an opt in Yes or No whether to share your location or not with each request. Facebook and Twitter connect. Download: For iPhone | For Android
 
Both the apps can be found in the Android market. Search for GTX and both apps will show up or search for GPS Tracking or Tracking.

Of all the GPS apps there is only one GPS Tracking app.

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.
