GeoSentric Oyj's, GeoSolutions BV Business Unit (GyPSii), the mobile digital lifestyle application and geo-mobility social networking platform, has today announced that it is the first location-based social networking application with touch screen experience to be able to support the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.
"GyPSii is ideally placed as the leading innovative application that incorporates social networking and communities with location-aware features - in particular, the ability to provide a location and social graph context to any media captured on the device. GyPSii's ability to deliver a touch screen experience in one integrated application is key to the Nokia Touch device customer," said Jure Sustersic, Business Development Manager at Forum Nokia EMEA.
GyPSii's launch on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is said to further support the company's capability to deliver on a global reach and extend reach into more mass markets. As a member of Forum Nokia, GyPSii says it has developed a strong relationship with the world's largest handset manufacturer.
GyPSii is already available for current Nokia S60 devices - including the N95, the N73, the N78, the N82, N6210, N6220, E66, E71 and the 6110 Navigator phone. The continued expansion onto devices further opens up the application to mass-market adoption.
"GyPSii allows people to record their lives, and explore and share their world with their social networks and communities," said Dan Harple, Executive Chairman of GeoSentric. "And unlike any other social networking platform, GyPSii is designed and built for a mobile device and uses location information and social graph relationships to not only drive details about where you are - but also about who or what is close by."
GyPSii members can 'uniquely' experience a broad range of location-specific functions and mobile lifestyle services - including user generated content, content-sharing, mobile geo-location content search and social networking, as well the ability to view it all on a map - all within a single user experience. Using GyPSii, members can access and "real-time" mobile features on their device, such as "Locating Friends" and sharing information on nearby point of interests, including places - restaurants, bars and clubs - contributed by friends and fellow GyPSii members.
