Tagggit’s new mobile application can now find the phone’s position indoors, within a few seconds and accurate to fifteen feet. Tagggit recently launched a new version of their mobile application, the second application ever to deliver an accurate wireless positioning system on mobile phones; second only to the 3G iPhone Maps application.
Tagggit have termed the wireless positioning system “City Mode” as it functions in metropolitan areas. Loughlin Spollen, Tagggit’s founder, explains “Tagggit is at its most useful in large cities and is currently used by members to find each other in downtown areas and to leave recommendations and surprise tags for friends. However GPS is not good in built-up areas. This latest release of our mobile software will help us change the way urbanites use their phones.”
The Tagggit mobile application makes Tagggit a market leader in the geo tagging social network space. Loughlin describes this release “a major milestone for us as Tagggit members no longer have to wait for a GPS fix or stand outside to create and search for tags.” Tagggit now produces instant results without a notable delay. Tagggit members can find their location and the tags in their vicinity without waiting on a GPS fix.
Tagggit also announced that it has come out of restricted beta testing and membership is now open to the general public.
Loughlin welcomed the move saying “we were surprised with the number of requests for membership during the period of restricted beta testing and unfortunately we could not accommodate many of the people who emailed us seeking invitation codes. Today, everyone is welcome to join.” Tagggit remains in beta but membership is now open to everyone.
The Tagggit application can be downloaded from the Tagggit.com website.
