There has been an explosion of apps using location across all smartphones in the past couple of years. New business models are emerging spearheaded by companies like FourSquare and Shopkick. Now we are seeing most popular apps integrating geosocial features in some way to increase the popularity of their apps and loyalty among their users. This session is a roundup of the trends we saw in the past year and examples of apps using location in cool new ways. Skyhook will also present results of their app surveys which investigate how app developers plan to use location in the future.
