GTX Corp Combines 2-Way GPS, Proximity Alerting and Apple Inc's 3.0 OS Delivering Social Location Awareness at the Touch of a Button New "Killer" Apps for iPhone and Smart Phones
Press Release: For Immediate Release
Los Angeles, Calif. - May 20, 2009 - GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), a leader in customizable, patented 2-way GPS Personal Location Services (PLS) solutions, plans to launch new apps this summer. The Company is expanding its LOCi brand with the soon to be released iLOCi2™ and Code Mobile™. The development contract remains with original LOCiMe engineers Lextech, an award winning iPhone application developer.
Following the soft launch of LOCiMe (currently available at the iPhone App Store), which turns your iPhone into a 2-way GPS transceiver enabling authorized friends and loved ones to monitor your whereabouts on the GTX Viewing Portal, the unique iLOCi2 app uses the iPhone's internal location services to pinpoint the location of opt-in friends, family or business associates at the touch of a button. Three versions are scheduled for release including a free two user version, a 10 user version which will cost $2.99, and an Enterprise version with unlimited users to be announced.
Shortly after the release of iLOCi2™ the company plans to launch its highly socially conscientious Code Amber News Service on a mobile platform. Code Mobile is a social location content provider, pushing "data-rich" missing persons' alerts to mobile handsets. This will be one of the first news services that will deliver real time data tracking an incident by seamlessly delivering information based on the physical location of the subscriber. The Code Mobile app will be available on the iPhone and an SMS alert service will be available on RIM BlackBerry and Google's Android, in addition to other smart phones. The Code Amber Mobile app and SMS service are expected to significantly expand the current Code Amber News Service alert system sending real-time alerts of missing persons, turning thousands of concerned citizens into "smart eyes" on the street.
