Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 9, 2011
mPanion™ is introducing a beta version of I’m Here™, an always-on location and presence service for Blackberry mobile users. The patent-pending technology provides users with an always-on, real time location service with advanced privacy controls, and enables a rich presence status based on their individual preferences and privacy settings.
mPanion's I’m Here provides a secure solution to manage and share location and status by customizable group lists. “Many location apps allow you to check-in manually, however we are introducing auto-updates which replaces the manual check-in process,” said mPanion Founder and CEO Neeraj Chawla. “Our technology offers easy to use privacy levels to manage your location and status, and all you have to do is assign your contacts to the appropriate group such as family, friends or work,” said Chawla. “I’m Here will also help people share their favorite locations within their trusted circle of friends and contacts without compromising their privacy.”
Along with unleashing the potential of location-based services, I’m Here also aims to address important issues such as distracted driving and parental monitoring. Beta users can provide the company feedback at http://www.mpanion.com.
