The MyGeoTrex app is like a tour guide for what's around you, utilizing GPS, text, and multi-media to tell any story
San Jose, California (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
MyGeoTrex™ Corporation, developer of the MyGeoTrex location-aware, multi-media capable mobile platform, announced the launch of its new MyGeoTrex (“MGT”) smartphone application now available on the App Store. The MGT app is designed to enhance the entertainment, informational, and/or educational experiences associated with locations such as theme parks, zoos, museums, shopping malls, and national parks, to name just a few. Individuals and organizations can create and use interactive multi-media content relevant to where they are and what they’re doing in real time. Since its soft launch on September 10, 2012 this innovative app has received great user reviews and has been implemented by such high profile organizations as the Kansas City Zoo, Phoenix Zoo, Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and Palo Alto Zoo.
“MyGeoTrex is the first social networking mobile application designed to leverage the smartphone’s powerful multi-media capabilities and location based technology into an open platform for creating and sharing enhanced multi-media content associated with specific locations anywhere in the world,” said Eric Small, founder and CEO of MyGeoTrex Corporation. “Now individuals, businesses, and organizations will be able to create rich, multi-media content for informational or entertainment purposes, and share it privately among individual friends or groups, or to the general public via the Web and mobile devices. The best way to describe MyGeoTrex is that mobile maps take you to the entrance, MyGeoTrex takes you inside.”
Although there are many location aware apps out there MGT is unique in that it combines all the multi-media features available on smart phones and tablets to allow users to easily create, share, and use content containing videos, photos and text with GPS positioning. Businesses and organizations such as zoos, museums and destination marketers benefit because they can develop unlimited GeoTrexpeditions without the hassles of maintaining their own app. No concerns about app store approvals, OS changes or product upgrades. Best of all, they don’t have to have their app downloaded or let users know it’s available. Users with MyGeoTrex are notified of what is available in their area so they can easily access and share GeoTrexpeditions. Individuals are also able to use MyGeoTrex to record and share their vacation or other event to tell any story they choose with GPS accuracy and multi-media content.
“The need for businesses and organizations to have an economical means to enrich a guest’s visit by providing them a free smartphone guide was the driving force behind the development of MyGeoTrex,” said Steve Earls, Vice President and Co-founder. “Now anyone, whether a business or individual, can use the free MyGeoTrex app to create a guide or tell a story and share with anyone they choose.”
MyGeoTrex is a privately held company and developer of the MyGeoTrex location-based/location-aware mobile platform, which brings all the multi-media capabilities of smartphones and smart devices together. Individuals, businesses, and organizations from zoos, aquariums and museums to visitors bureaus, and families who wish to record and share their vacation or other event, can tell any story they choose with GPS accuracy and multi-media content. MyGeoTrex is available for free through the Apple App Store and is designed to enhance the entertainment, informational, or educational experience associated with a specific site or region. Organizations and businesses can create and manage “Official” GeoTrexpedition to more effectively communicate and market to the public through their mobile device. Individuals can create their own personal GeoTrexpedition and add their own comments, photos and videos, and share them with whomever they choose over the World Wide Web.
