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
