GTX has announced its LOCiMOBILE subsidiary's GPS Tracking Apps crossed over 1 Million downloads with users in 116 countries and continues to be on the top charts of iTunes and Android market place.
"The GPS Tracking app is the simplest way to stay connected to a child, parent, friend or business associate, quickly and accurately from a Smartphone or internet ready device like the iPad, iPod or Android tablet, allowing users to locate people, instantly with one simple touch of a button," says Patrick Bertagna, CEO of GTX Corp.
"We also offer it at a price everyone can afford without compromising privacy."
LOCiMOBILE's 2-way GPS tracking platform has garnered a significant increase in awareness and demand, giving GTX Corp a strong foothold in this $13 billion industry. The Company pioneered 2-way GPS tracking technology over 9 years ago and defined an innovative category of location - based services by coining the phrase Personal Location Services (PLS) - because personal location is all about "keeping you connected to whom and what matters most."
"Increase demand for 2-way GPS tracking can be attributed to several factors including hundreds of millions of new GPS enabled smartphones hitting the market, to an increase in boomers becoming memory impaired, to corporations needing to better manage work productivity and logistics, but the seismic shift came from the massive life style adoption of mobile location based social networking," adds Mr. Bertagna.
"Facebook and Twitter, became giants by answering the "what are you doing question" and we added the missing component... "where is" or "where are you doing it" which has become the new paradigm for staying connected."
Looking ahead, the Company is continuing to expand its LOCiMOBILE proximity marketing platform and has recently partnered with MyChamberApp.com and launched a deal of the day for Pizza Hut a Longview Texas Chamber of commerce member. Kelly Hall, Longview Chamber CEO was recently awarded for best multimedia marketer through her innovative way of leveraging MyChamberApp and LOCi Deals push notification platform amongst her 1,000 plus chamber business partners.
