DescriptionLocomatix Mobile is an integrated location-based service for personal
and social convenience. This app aggregates several location-based services -- a geo-enabled Twitter client enabling you to post geo-tagged tweets and view nearby tweets, a friend & family finder, location-based messaging, and real-time bus/metro tracking for Madison Metro, Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and University of Michigan.
Locomatix puts you in control of your privacy and lets you set sophisticated rules to control how your location information is used by these services. The app has sophisticated privacy management. Furthermore, unlike other location apps, we don't record and archive a history of your past locations!
