Location-based services report from Compete

A fascinating new report from Compete on location-based services.

Some of the findings:

About a third of smart phone users are accessing location-based services at least once a month, primarily for maps (for directions) and weather reports. As the interest grows in this, I see so much potential in many, many areas.

A few companies mentioned in the report already expanding the possibilities:

Buzzd, find nearby restaurants, shops and events

WeFi, apps for WiFi

What are you seeing out there, in terms of location-based services?
