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.

 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.

Smartphone owners worldwide downloaded more than 3.8 billion mobile applications in the first six months of 2010, compared to 3.1 billion in all of 2009, according to new data issued by market analysis firm research2guidance. Global smartphone revenues for the first half of 2010 exceed $2.2 billion, surpassing full-year 2009 revenues of $1.7 billion. The study adds that the average premium application price in now $3.60.

“Apple’s competitors like Nokia and BlackBerry started to leverage their global reach and increased the traffic on their app stores,” said research2guidance analyst Egle Mikalajunaite in a prepared statement. “We see this trend continuing in the next several months and years. The next wave of new app stores will be niche stores specializing on e.g. business or mobile health apps.”

Everything has a price, including mobile privacy.

That’s one of many conclusions to be drawn from audit, tax and advisory services firm KPMG’s new Consumers & Convergence study–the annual survey reveals that while user concerns over data privacy are growing, with 79 percent of respondents worldwide expressing angst over unauthorized access to their personally identifiable information, 58 percent of respondents also say they would be willing to allow tracking of their digital behavior and profile information if it resulted in lower costs. KPMG also notes the emergence of what it calls “Information Sharers”–i.e., mobile subscribers willing to exchange personal data for cheap or free content, as well as conduct their banking and even access personal medical information via wireless device. The study indicates Information Sharers now make up about 10 percent of the overall mobile user population, led by consumers in China and India; however, U.S. respondents represent just 4 percent of the Information Sharer segment, despite making up 12 percent of the KPMG survey group.

The current iPhone is unable to run third-party applications in the background which limits certain types of apps, such as location-based services. However, rumors suggest that the iPhone OS software 4.0 revision will support foreground and background performance while preserving battery life. The same rumor says it  will arrive this summer, while iPad users will have to wait until the fall…But, you don’t have to wait until that long if you download the GPS Tracking app. It’s a peer to peer messaging app running in the foreground and able to locate anyone or everyone in your contact list with a single click and now it can share a photo with its point to point locates.
