Location-based Applications & LBS
The mobile Internet is enabling a vast range of new applications that dynamically provide information relevant to a user’s current location. Location-based service (LBS) is an information and entertainment service which uses the GPS location of the user to help them with personalized services tailored to their current location while moving. Find friends on your social network nearby or Gaming/Gambling applications, finding the whereabouts of an employee, locate the nearest “in-network” Doctor or Medical facility etc can be built to respect geographical limits.
Location-based Applications open a new market for developers, cellular network operators, and service providers to develop and deploy value-added services: Advising users of current traffic conditions, supplying routing information, helping them find nearby restaurants, and many more.
