How to submit? – Access Content Relevant To Your Location

HPGloe.comPresented by Hewlett Packard, Gloe is a social experiment that aims to see how far the interactions of location-based networks can be taken. Gloe lets mobile users find information that is suited to their location at any given time.

Gloe works by matching web content with the exact location of the user. In this way, a contextualized experience is always provided, and the user does not lose time narrowing the results of a search when he is already busy to begin with (remember, he is on the go).

Some of the uses Gloe can be put to include the discovery of local news and bargains as well as the sharing of geo-tagged pages with friends. Additionally, a platform like Gloe can be employed in order to carry out virtual tours or even geographic polls.

Finally, note that if you are a developer and you think that Gloe has potential then you might as well get you hands on the featured open API. This will let you integrate Gloe with any current mobile application of yours in a straightforward way. In Their Own Words
