August 7, 2010

Location-Based Apps Names

Another week of location-based news from the past seven days. It may not have been as exciting as last week but with rumors of @Google buying @Gowalla and both Gowalla and @FourSquare updating their profile pages there still was a lot of location-based post and announcements published. For instance TriOut founder @lawpower showed a screenshot of the next version of the @TriOut iPhone app and we also saw two location-based infogrpahics published. Another location-based app/platform announced called @Shopkick. and here on SocialWayne.com I published a few articles on QR codes and privacy.  Here’s the round-up, 31 Location-based articles you may have missed to stay current in the location space
