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.

 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..

Mobile Privacy 101:

If you are concerned about the possibility of accidentally exposing personal data such as your name, location or social connections with social sites or their advertisers, you will have to avoid social media and social networking — for the time being.

Clicking on an ad gives the destination website the precise web address from which you arrived. It’s the way the web works, and no one that is buying ads wants to change that MO as it is the basis of performance analytics. That’s exactly what happened at MySpace and it’s been a problem at Facebook as well.

It’s a problem with any website that aggregates visitor profiles or their data with click-through ads. The Wall Street Journal is justified for sharing with its readers the problem as they might not realize that absolute privacy is a virtual impossibility.

As more personal info is placed online, users are understandably skittish and angry about their data and appalled about even the most innocuous compromise to their privacy regardless of the promises of anonymity.

Having illuminated the problem, not all mobile applications that use subscriber data share that info with advertisers. Specifically, GTX Corp and its LOCiMOBILE GPS Tracking Apps are one of the exceptions. The personal ID data and the location data generated via the app is only shared between the subscribers that have opted to give and receive their locates. Safe and secure are more than claims, they are a credential.

Android users search twice as much as iPhone subscribers.

Google smartly views search, and the ads accompanying it, the ROI for its affiliates and investors. Google said that mobile searches are more valuable to mobile operators as they also earn money from the ads.

Google announced a $1 billion annualized run rate for mobile — which covers phones, tablets, and “other devices.” Mobile searches also grew five times over previous years — although that’s not much of a surprise given Android’s massive ramp-up over the twelve months.

In comparison to search and ads, Google doesn’t expect its Android Mobile Market to be much of a revenue maker… unless the app promotes sales with Google Checkout, consumer advertising and or searching for people with GPS TRACKING APPS which bodes well for GTX Corp and its LOCiMOBILE subsidiary.

As Android becomes more popular, and mobile users begin to rely on Google’s search and services more, the company expects the modality to generate greater profits than PCs do today.

Location App Privacy: a question asked and answered.

The great thing about personal location services is you and I can have instant access to a multi-billion government GPS technology enabling the display of the location of the people we know with a push of a button right on our smart-phones. As amazing as this opportunity is for each of us, displaying and sharing personal information with the assurance of privacy is a significant concern.

When people make personal information available, they make themselves vulnerable. To deal with their vulnerability people weigh both what they have to “give” and what they “get” when asking and answering personal information questions. It should come as no surprise that Pew research found that 85% of adults want to control access to their personal information because that something is publicly accessible doesn’t mean people want it to be publicized.

As Helen Nissenbaum of New York University has argued, “contextual integrity” is necessary for people to effectively manage their privacy. The mere threat of a breach of integrity is experienced as a violation of privacy as we have recently witnessed both with FaceBook and Google Buzz.

Providing and insuring control of personal privacy has been a fundamental precept for GTX Corp and its LOCiMOBILE GPS Tracking Apps. Sharing personal location information is kept securely between the people asking and answering the “where is” question in a peer to peer environment. No information is taken, stored, shared or used by anyone but the app’s subscribers. The keyword is “personal” location service.
