Skylab let me know that they have updated their free LiveTracker application to allow you to launch the remote tracking control via SMS or when your BlackBerry is rebooted. This is not the biggest upgrade in the beta but I really like the LiveTracker application so I was just looking for an excuse to mention it since the beta started.
I am not sure how useful the location sharing features will be once BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 is released officially but the tracking features are nice AND FREE! I just wish they would add in cell tower triangulation so it does not always need to use GPS.
- Free Download: LiveTracker Mobile is available for free non-commercial use – download.
- Free Tracking Server: For storing tracking data we maintain a tracking server – for free.
- Background Tracking: Start LiveTracker and it sends the GPS location to our tracking server.
- Automatic Tracking: On device startup GPS tracking can be fired up automatically.
- Remote Control: Start and stop GPS tracking on your device by sending an SMS.
- Share Location: Send EMail, PIN, SMS, MMS, Twitter message to your location’s map representation.
- BETA TEST: Due to the early stage of this application please report any bugs to us. Thank you.
