LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GTX Corp's (OTCBB:GTXO) business unit LOCiMOBILE, Inc. crossed over 750,000 users in 100 countries and has launched yet another GPS and personal location - based (PLS) "app" advancing its leadership position in the growing mobile LBS market.
There is no escaping the buzz surrounding the latest craze of "checking-in" and the "i" phenomenon - iPhone, iPad, iPod, so what better name for the GTX's new iPhone app but, iCheck-In ™. Keeping you connected with one push of a button for about the cost of a latte, iCheck-In ™, is the fastest and easiest way to "check-in" and stay connected to everyone in your mobile contact list and your Facebook friends. The recipient of your iCheck-In™ does not need an app as the "check-ins" are sent by e-mail or right to your Facebook wall. This unique feature expands the checking-in concept far beyond app to app and smartphone to smartphone. Now with one push of a button, your boss, your grandma, your old college buddies or FB friends will be sent a message and a Google map, to see where you are and receive turn by turn directions to meet you providing the fastest and most ubiquitous way to stay connected and "check-In."
With an estimated 1 billion smartphones by 2014 and Samsung on track to deliver 40 million feature phones and 1 million tablets in 2011, joining the tablet race with Apple, RIM and Skytex, the mobile LBS market is going to become disruptive technology and could see revenues to more than 12.7 billion. Looking forward towards 2011, GTX Corp will continue to leverage this rapidly growing market and introduce new applications in e-Health and apps that will run across various platforms and devices from smartphones to tablets to TV's.
