Unique New App Maps Friends, Children and Co-Workers in Real Time, Privately and at the Push of a ButtonPersonal Location Services (PLS) GPS People-Finding Solutions Delivered Right to Your Phone Domestically and Soon to Come Internationally (July 23, 2009)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/23/09 -- LOCiMOBILE, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), has launched its new iLOCi2(TM) iPhone App for people to easily and privately locate others with a push of a button. What makes this App different from other location Apps, is its simple yet private approach to locating others. The company has a 7-year history in customizable, patented 2-way GPS Personal Location Services (PLS) solutions and approached the development of iLOCi2 from the perspective of ease of use, privacy and how to best deliver a people-finding solution to millions across the world at an affordable price. The answer was "We can make an App for that."
Version 1.0 was just released (available at www.itunes.com/app/iloci2) and after early positive reviews, the company is already expanding its LOCi brand and is in development of iLOCi2 International version 1.2 -- initially in French and Spanish -- scheduled for release next month and looking at Mandarin or Cantonese as the next frontier. iTunes is a significant distribution opportunity facilitated by the global acceptance of the iPhone and The App Store.
"Personal location awareness provides peace of mind which has no geographical borders," said Patrick Bertagna, CEO of GTX Corp. "This is why we are actively researching and aggressively developing for the future."
What astonishes everyone, parents, professionals, teens, and tweens, that has previewed iLOCi2, is its speed and ease of use. Imagine the relief for an anguished parent looking for their child, the joy of knowing where a spouse is or that a senior parent is safe, perhaps that business associates are close enough to schedule a spontaneous meeting or get together with a friend unexpectedly -- this at the push of a button, in a matter of seconds and without violating anyone's privacy. You ask the where question and LOCi is the answer®.
"We are excited to have implemented Apple's latest iPhone notification and mapping features in iLOCi2 for the GTX Team. The app features a unique approach targeted to an audience that wants timely and private location information sharing," said Alex Bratton, CEO of Lextech Global Services.
