At one time, the GPS technology embedded in mobile apps was used only for navigation. Today this technology is being used much more widely. Location-based services have entered spheres such as retail, eCommerce, healthcare, food, and entertainment. All of this has taken the user experience in many fields to a completely new level. GPS in IoT makes it possible to create unique real-time trackers that analyze the movements of people, animals, objects, and vehicles. IoT devices paired with GPS-powered software help to collect and record huge volumes of data related to speed, time, direction, and location, which can be used in a variety of ways for personal or business purposes.

// Let’s take a look at some of the most popular types of GPS-powered applications.
// Fitness apps

Fitness apps can measure the speed of running, walking and cycling, and record stats with a wide range of parameters that help users make their workouts more effective.

// eCommerce apps

Based on information drawn from a user’s location, eCommerce applications can display the closest delivery office or shipping center and offer the best options for shipments. Groupon, eBay, Amazon, and AliExpess are typical examples of a location-based eCommerce app.

// Taxi-hailing apps

GPS technology in mobile app development is widely used by on-demand taxi services. The apps get the location of a user and of available cars, then estimate the time needed to get to a pick-up point and to a destination. The most famous taxi-hailing apps, popular in many countries, are Uber, Lyft and Curb.

// Dating apps

Location-based dating apps work by matching pairs in accordance with the location of users’ devices. When an app (like Tinder or OkCupid, for example) gets a location from one smartphone, it starts looking for potential matches within the specified search radius.

// AR Games

Applications of this type obtain geolocation data to be able to offer users relevant gaming content; for example, to cache some virtual objects in the real world or somehow interact with them. Pokémon Go and Neyon Clash are among the most well-known location-based AR games.
