Fullerton, CA (PRWEB) March 30, 2008
SpotJots, a new location-based social networking service, has been selected as a semi-finalist in the 2008 NAVTEQ LBS Challenge, with final judging to be held during CTIA in Las Vegas April 1-3. SpotJots incorporates NAVTEQ data to equip users with the ability to discover, and be discovered, by location.
SpotJots enables users to upload their stories, reviews, pictures, video, audio and documents to their personal SpotJots blog, where the content can be associated with relevant location information and shared with the entire community, just friends or kept private for personal viewing only. Users can discover content and people through various site tools, including keyword searches, a public timeline, city exploration guides, references, a featured user list and maps which promotes spatial discovery of content.
"Think about your most enjoyable vacation, the best dinner you've ever had, your honeymoon or the place you received the worst customer service. A common thread that runs through each of these memories is location ... where the event took place is a significant component," said Christopher Heiser, President of Ten23 Software, the company behind SpotJots. "Our goal is to enable our users to provide a richer narrative of their lives through the incorporation of location information."
SpotJots also provides mobile support through text messaging (SMS) and a downloadable application which enables users to send content from their phone to their blog in real-time. Experiences can be captured through photos, video, audio recordings and text notes as they happen. In addition, the SpotJots service includes a publication feature which enables users to distribute content to their other online accounts, like Blogger and Facebook, directly from the web or their mobile phone.
SpotJots is available at http://www.spotjots.com.
