Description

Locomatix Mobile is an integrated location-based service for personal

and social convenience. This app aggregates several location-based services a geo-enabled Twitter client enabling you to post geo-tagged tweets and view nearby tweets, a friend & family finder, location-based messaging, and real-time bus/metro tracking for Madison Metro, Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and University of Michigan.

Locomatix puts you in control of your privacy and lets you set sophisticated rules to control how your location information is used by these services. The app has sophisticated privacy management. Furthermore, unlike other location apps, we don't record and archive a history of your past locations!

FEATURE LIST:

* View nearby tweets and tweets from your social network in a map or as a list and post geo-tagged tweets.

* Interactive location-based social networking. Receive alerts when friends and family are nearby, or ping them to request their location.

* Advanced privacy controls to allow you to block of times and places when you want to stop sharing location.

* Communicate with your network using geo-tagged messages, which are messages tagged with location and time. Use these messages to leave reminders or event notifications for yourself or people in your social network.

* Easily invite your friends and family from your existing social network.

* Real-time bus tracking for Madison Metro Transit, the University of Michigan bus system, and Chicago’s CTA. This app allows you to view and track the current locations of buses in your metro transit system.

* Receive push notification when a bus approaches your bus stop (only for Madison Metro and University of Michigan, Ann Arbor).

* Coordinate bus travel with your friends and family.

* Integrated map view to show friend or family member locations, geo-messages, bus stops and real-time position of buses.

3/5 stars

iOS 4.1 with iPhone 4

:
Overall...great app. Still has lots of bugs to work out but perfect otherwise. Needs to also be a bit snappier in terms of quickness (suggesting possibly more bug fixes). Has issues with the realtime tracker, it's not always accurate.

2/5 stars

Needs work

:
At first I thought this would be a godsend, especially for riding the Madison bus in winter and it would be if it weren't for the crashes and it's tendency to claim the next bus would be arriving in 23 hours! And even when it does closer in time it still isn't always accurate

4/5 stars

Potential

:
Im in Madison so this is the only app that does busses. It should be the only app you need to use for buses but it is buggy and akward. Bus locations are accurate, just 3 minute delay so be early. Bus routes that are circles get cut into two halts so one half never has bus times. It's a good idea I just wish it were better. If you figure out how to wrangle it it is a good tool w/ google maps. Better than nothing. Has potential.
