LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GTX Corp (OTCBB:GTXO) business unit LOCiMOBILE, Inc. is launching a series of GPS and personal location - based "apps" and web services solidifying its leadership position in the mobile LBS market, which mobile carriers are calling "Pure Gold".
The new apps all have a GPS component and are designed to add the " where is " factor to functionality. A potential block-buster, the Company launched on the Android market place Phone Tracking ™ in case you lose or misplace your phone. More than 70 million phones are reported lost or stolen in the U.S. each year but while the loss of a phone may be annoying the loss of personal and business data could be devastating. This $4.99 app is designed to work in the background and can be activated to turn on remotely in the event you misplace your phone. The real-time tracking and recovery feature is activated by either texting your phone or by going to the Company viewing portal The cool part is this app is actually activated remotely by texting your phone a PIN or password. Upon receipt of the password your phone will begin sending its location coordinates back to the website every minute or to the phone you are texting from, after each text request.
The Company is also about to launch a new live tracking version of its popular Tracking App which will work in the background on Apples 4.0 OS. Live Tracking ™, already available on Android and BB will be part of the web-based service and offers cross-platform, real-time GPS tracking of friends and family, kids and co-workers.
Entering the photography category GPS Camera ™ which GEO tags and time stamps your photos and enables you to upload them to Facebook or email to friends is expected to go live on iTunes any day. "The ability to see all your digital pictures 5 years from now, displaying exactly where and when that great shot was taken, is a modern adaptation of our parents writing on the back of that old black and white photo (Grand Canyon Spring 1977)," said Carlos Briceno, VP of Business Development.
With Juniper Research supporting the theory that mobile LBS is going to become disruptive technology and could drive revenues to more than 12.7 billion with 1 billion smart phones by 2014, the Company is aggressively increasing app development and launching new apps, positioning for a strong presence in the mobile market with a diverse product line, increased global user base, brand recognition and revenues.
