Location, Location, Location: Not Just Something Real Estate Agents Say Anymore
Thanks to mobile devices, we’re never lost. We can also track our routes, customize our directions to our mode of transportation, and we can see who’s near us. We can pinpoint our location on this great big earth no matter which stars are out.
Developers are excited about the possibilities of location-based services. They’re experimenting and innovating with new location tools while users are benefiting by exploring their physical and digital communities in a different way.
Next week, location-based services are going to be the talk of London at Apps World, October 2-3. Telmap, an Intel company and a world leader in mobile location-based services, is presenting in an Apps World panel titled “Geo-Location: Where Are You Now? Integrating Location-Based Features into Apps.” Telmap is a world leader in mobile location-based services. The Telmap folks are also hosting their own session called, “Your Local M8 – User Experience in Your LBS Mobile App.”
The topics at this event will likely find their way into our mobile devices in the future. My favorite location-based services are the ones that let me connect with new people based on location. I hope there will be more services that help me connect with others IRL.
If you’re attending Apps World, put a bug in a few of the developers’ ears for me on this one. And, of course, attend the Telmap presentations. Details below.
