GTX Corp Launches Personal Location Services (PLS) iPhone Application LOCiMe

iPhone App, LOCiMe Connects the Dots Putting Real Time 2-Way GPS Tracking on the Map

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2009) - GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), a leader in customizable 2-way GPS Personal Location Services (PLS) applications, launches LOCiMe, the first in a series of geo-specific applications that transform your iPhone into a real time, GPS transceiver, available now from the iPhone App Store at no charge.

The application was created by LOCiMobile, Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of GTX Corp, and engineered by Lextech, an award-winning iPhone developer and creator of innovative applications including iRa Pro and iRa Direct. LOCiMe is a phone resident application that uses the iPhone's internal GPS (3G iPhone) or WiFi (2G and 2.5G iPhones) to determine the cell phone's latitude, longitude, altitude, speed and bearing. LOCiMe utilizes the phone's cell-based Web services (HTTP) to transmit its latitude and longitude coordinates to the GTX/PLS Portal allowing authorized friends, co-workers and loved ones to know: where you are, where you have been, how fast you are moving, and what direction you are heading.

The iPhone user can set the frequency of how often the latitude/longitude data is collected and how often it is transmitted, transforming your iPhone into both a data-logger and real time geo-specific data transceiver. Upon receipt of the latitude/longitude data, the information is translated into a common internal format (converting latitude/longitude data into common street addresses -- 117 West 9th Street) and stored in the GTX/PLS Portal users' account. This will allow a logged-in subscriber, via a web browser interface or another iPhone, to view the real time whereabouts including: instantaneous tracking information, bread crumb tracking for specific start/stop, date/time combinations, historic tracking information, and various reports.

LOCiMe is available for download at no charge from the iPhone App Store. Access to the GTX/PLS viewing portal is free for the first 90 days.
