[prMac.com] Falkensee, Germany - SYSVISION GmbH is pleased to announce the release of their latest app: TrackRoom - designed for iPhone and Android. The app once and for all resolves all appointment problems. The concept is simple: Someone establishes a TrackRoom for the duration of a particular event, invites friends by using the address book of the app and shares with all participants of the TrackRoom one's own current position, established by the GPS in real time. A map on the Smartphone of everyone involved will lead to the agreed upon location and also display the current position of all participants.
In a nutshell:
* New: TrackRoom 1.0
* App for the iPhone and Android Smartphones
* Displays the actual position of selected friends
* Ideal as an invitation tool or to set up a meeting place
* Notifies friends via push-alert
* Displays meeting place on a map
* Displays position of all participants on a map
* Easy group chat in case of questions
* No data or transaction logs
* Price: $ 0.99 for the iPhone-Version (or an advertising funded Lite-Version)
* Price: Complimentary app for Android devices (advertising funded)
Everyone knows the problem. How do you meet up with friends, acquaintances and relatives in an unfamiliar place such as a concert, a festival in the city, someplace outside intending to go for a walk, a flea market or even a new restaurant? Nobody really knows the exact address so a vague place to meet is agreed upon. Arriving there the fear remains if one is really at the right place.
The app TrackRoom for the iPhone and Android-Smartphones puts an end to all appointment problems. The first person to arrive at a place simply starts the new app TrackRoom, creates his own TrackRoom and via GPS determines his location. After that it is easy to select the contacts that are already logged into the TrackRoom with their phone numbers. Only these hand-picked contacts will be notified of the new meeting place. A push-alert on the iPhone or Android screen will notify friends of the exact meeting place, even when the app is closed. The meeting place will be marked on a map so that it is easy to get there.
TrackRoom: Quick communication through group chat:
For questions and problems of any kind ("The road is blocked, I can't get through", "Can't make it today", "I will be ten minutes late") the group chat will be a tremendous and immediate help. All friends belonging to a TrackRoom may comfortably communicate with each other. New chat messages will be delivered via push-alert.
"Being a father, I truly appreciate the app we created with TrackRoom - especially when I am spending time with my children in an amusement park and everyone is running in a different direction. With TrackRoom nobody gets lost. I can easily set up a new meeting place without having to make arrangements beforehand," said Daniel Hanelt, CEO of SYSVISION GmbH that developed TrackRoom.
"The app is also the ultimate party tool. Anyone that found a great location for dancing and partying on a Friday night may just spontaneously open a new TrackRoom to share the site with all his friends", said Nico Zimmermann, chief designer of TrackRoom.
Very important: Although someone's location is being revealed to friends through the app TrackRoom, data privacy protection will be maintained. Once a TrackRoom expires all location data is automatically deleted. The app does not collect data and therefore creates no transaction profile.
TrackRoom: The map shows where everyone is:
Very important: The map of the TrackRoom not only shows the meeting place but also visualizes in real time the current location of ALL participants. Anyone can find out instantly where everyone is. Constant calls like "Where are you now?" can be completely eliminated. A glance at the map is all it takes to find out who is just about to turn around the corner, who is still on the highway and who is close by, looking for a parking space.
Daniel Hanelt: "This function is ideally suited to keep an eye on individuals participating in a motorcycle-, skiing-, hiking- or city tour. It is also a great tool for ride sharing companies since meeting places are often vague and not everyone has local knowledge. The map easily unites both parties."
