Have You Checked In Yet ?

Checked in ? Where ? Hotel ? Any place ?
Nope, it’s about checking in on your phone. Sounds crazy, right ? But it makes sense when you check in on Place Tagging application on your phone !

Life has become so busy that you get out of touch from friends and family. You hardly get time to call your old pal or loving mother. You can’t get vacation or have spare time. It’s so frustrating ๐Ÿ™

But what if someone meets you somewhere unexpectedly ? While you are shopping at mall or attending an event ? So nice and perfect ! Isn’t it ? But you don’t even get time to tell your buddies about your upcoming schedule, no time ๐Ÿ™

This is where Mobile Tagging could help you out. It basically locates your position on beautiful Earth and posts to any of your social networking profile. Plus you could add your own updates like Upcoming Events. Then your friends and family see it, and perhaps join you for the same!

If you have a GPS enabled phone, it’s perfect. If not, don’t worry ! Today’s mobile tagging application can also use Cell Tracking to find your location. We have Foursquare, Gowalla and Facebook Places for mobile tagging. Google Places is also of same kind, but it’s not for mobile as of now.

Foursquare is more popular for mobile phones. It supports iPhone, Android and Blackberry. You could setup a profile on Foursquare or tweet updates. Spread your upcoming tasks by Add Thing option. Wherever you go, it will update location automatically.

Gowalla is popular in the US. It also supports Palm OS, along with iPhone, Android and Blackberry. It allows you to showcase your Trips and see if someone wants to join you ! You could also search for specific event to be held at specific place.

Facebook Places is under testing. With native integration in Facebook Social Networking profile, perhaps it would become popular. Facebook already focused on mobile social networking. If you have a Facebook profile, you could sometime see a notification saying- ” Your friend is joining something event”, it is event notification of places.

And this is just a start. As we get 3G, more and more tagging services will come up. Be in touch with your family and friends, wherever on Earth !
