Location App Privacy: a question asked and answered.

The great thing about personal location services is you and I can have instant access to a multi-billion government GPS technology enabling the display of the location of the people we know with a push of a button right on our smart-phones. As amazing as this opportunity is for each of us, displaying and sharing personal information with the assurance of privacy is a significant concern.

When people make personal information available, they make themselves vulnerable. To deal with their vulnerability people weigh both what they have to “give” and what they “get” when asking and answering personal information questions. It should come as no surprise that Pew research found that 85% of adults want to control access to their personal information because that something is publicly accessible doesn’t mean people want it to be publicized.

As Helen Nissenbaum of New York University has argued, “contextual integrity” is necessary for people to effectively manage their privacy. The mere threat of a breach of integrity is experienced as a violation of privacy as we have recently witnessed both with FaceBook and Google Buzz.

Providing and insuring control of personal privacy has been a fundamental precept for GTX Corp and its LOCiMOBILE GPS Tracking Apps. Sharing personal location information is kept securely between the people asking and answering the “where is” question in a peer to peer environment. No information is taken, stored, shared or used by anyone but the app’s subscribers. The keyword is “personal” location service.

With app store downloads topping 3.6 billion in 2009 and expected to grow to 6.6 billion this year, market research firm Futuresource Consulting forecasts downloads will leap to 16.2 billion in 2013, translating to worldwide revenues of close to $15 billion. According to Futuresource, more than 85 percent of existing app store downloads are free to consumers, a percentage expected to remain stable over the next few years–consumer spending is nevertheless surging, with the premium mobile app market from developers like GTX Corp continuing to expand their titles.

Futuresource says that, along with direct-per-pay downloads, its revenue projections incorporate indirect value-add services like in-app payments and subscriptions as LOCiMOBILE does with its new people finder TRACKING app. “Factor in mobile content revenues which fall beyond the world of the apps store–like direct downloads from gaming companies, handset manufacturers and operators, video downloads, music and ringtones–and the whole package will be worth $38 billion worldwide by 2013,” said Futuresource senior market analyst Patrik Pflandler in a prepared statement.

Futuresource adds that app stores also hold significant promise for non-smartphone devices like the forthcomong Samsung Bada OS tablets, and expects applications to become a major feature of connected TVs and Blu-ray players, with a particular emphasis on familiar apps and brands that fit comfortably within the viewer experience.
