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:

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.

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.

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.

GTX Corp is tracking: Google’s Android may be taking a trip down the Amazon

Although reports have recorded the growth of smartphones running on the Android platform have exceeded those on the Apple operating system, app developers remain ardent supporter of the iTunes App Store.

Analysts predict that Apple’s revenue from the store will rise from $425M in 2010 to $2.3B by 2015 – among them the top selling GTX Corp (GTXO) GPS Tracking and GeoTagging Apps from LOCiMOBILE

With an outlook as robust as this, one might expect that the Android Marketplace seeing these numbers  would invest in its user interface to build a positive consumer/developer franchise. Such is not the case as only 10% of developers polled have anything positive to say about the Google model.

Obviously this bodes well for Amazon, the newest app store contender. With its powerful cloud computing technology, near perfect transaction engine and monster data base the front runner may have to put on the speed to stay in front.

Our guess is that Bezos is going to make the pages of eBooks apps and make finding those apps very, very easy. Eliminating the hurdles to close a transaction is key to the user experience and Amazon’s patented one-click check-out has its advantages over Google’s. Bigger may not be better…yet.

Samsung Smartphone Sales Soar On Android Platform

Samsung Electronics expects to sell up to 25 million smartphones by the close of 2010, a significant increase to the company’s earlier estimate and due mostly to its recent allegiance to Google Android – a 7 million unit increase on its original sales target of 18 million. Samsung expects to double the number of smartphones it ships in 2011.

Earlier this week, Samsung said it had shipped more than 1 million of its Galaxy S smartphones in the U.S. The Galaxy S is Samsung’s first smartphone on the Google Android platform and will offer all of the LOCiMOBILE apps.

“We are prioritizing our Android platform. Android is very open and flexible, and there is a consumer demand for it,” YH Lee, Samsung Mobile’s head of marketing, said this week.

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.
