Locating of the device is based on the GSM network cells. Thanks to the application the GSM network cells ID are not visible for the end user. The only thing he /she has to do is to 'teach' the mobile phone the important locations like home, school, work, best friend, train station, church etc. This work is very easy and doesn't require any technical knowledge and understanding. It can be done from Options->Learn location on the first tab 'Where'?
The greatest adventage for the end user is that the application lets to create EVENTS, while at least one location is saved.
Once there is at least one location saved you can create events for this location. Currently Where I am offers five types of events:
That event means that end user may set up an alarm, that will activate when the mobile phone would approach or exit selected location (geographical area). So using this application end user may sleep in the train to work / school, knowing that his /her device will wake him / her up exactly at the desired station, even if the train will be late or before scheduled time.
That type of event will change profile of the end user phone automatically, based on the location (geographical area). Having this application may be very helpful for user, and may avoid a lot of troubles with loudly ringtones at the office, school, church, or at the doctor. End user may increase the profiles personalizing functionalities of the phone having the Psiloc Extended Profiles application installed.
That event is a part of previous one but this is really important one. Entering the location where mobile phone should be switched off, end user may set a power off event. So the mobile phone will switch off automatically while end user will enter the hospital, church, theatre, or cinema if, of course he/she tought the phone such locations.
That kind of event is also possible in Where I am. Based on the location, the end user?s phone may change the background image automatically, so end user may choose the company logo as the background at the office location and family picture at the home location.
The automatic SMS sending event can be used to inform the end user family of coming back from work or to notify the coworker that the truck is coming to plan the work more effectively etc.
Where I Am is very user friendly application and understandable for every users even though it implements a highly sophisticated technology. More advanced user can consider using miniGPS instead of Where I am. MiniGPS gives the user more technical information but is far more complicated to use. Using both of them on the same phone is not possible
