Geoloqi wins the mobile showcase at AppNation San Francisco!

Mobile App Competition

This week the Geoloqi team attended APPNATION and presented at AppCircus, a global open app showcase. We learned about the conference from Di-Ann Eisnor and had very little time to prepare our presentation for the event.

Lots of Apps!

The competition had a lot of great ideas and it was wonderful to see them. All were successful apps in many different fields. Our two favorites were GitBax, an app that helps you “get back” to those you meet, and OpenSignalMaps, an app for finding mobile signals around town.

The next morning Geoloqi was called to the stage and awarded a $1,500 cash prize on behalf of APPNATION. Geoloqi was also entered into consideration for a presentation at Mobile World Expo in Barcelona, Spain next year.

APPNATION, San Francisco!

APPNATION was a great conference! We learned a great deal and got to meet a ton of amazing people. The presentations were chock full of information and the expo floor companies were very relevant and useful to talk to. We have Di-Ann Eisnor to thank for telling us about the conference, and the conference organizers for putting on such a great event.

Much more to come!

Thanks to everyone who attended the event, helped us to prepare and supported Geoloqi in general. If you’d like to get news more quickly follow Geoloqi on Twitter!

Software Association of Oregon – Location-Based Apps

There’s a message from your future and it’s telling you to remember to pick up milk.

Amber Case and her partner Aaron Parecki are the founders of Geoloqi. Geoloqi is a private, real-time mobile and web platform for secure location data, with features such as Geonotes, proximal notification, and sharing real-time GPS maps with friends. Geoloqi has been covered in the Willamette Week and Oregon Business. It has been presented at eComm, Open Source Bridge, Show and Tell PDX and Research Club under the alias Non-Visual Augmented Reality with SMS and GPS. Read CNN’s article on Geoloqi, “What’s Next for ‘Check-in’ Apps“.

What will you learn:

  1. Why developers of apps should look at what users want to do now, as well as what users want to do in their future.
  2. Why social apps should try to mirror real–world relationships
  3. Why sharing should be about who you share with as well as how long you want the information to be available.
  4. Why developers should think about making apps “ambient” and require less user interaction.

Tickets are $15. Register for the event here.
