Spotique: A New Approach to Local Messaging

Our new paper: Manfred Sneps-Sneppe and Dmitry Namiot "Spotique: A New Approach to Local Messaging", 11th International Conference, WWIC 2013, St. Petersburg, Russia, June 5-7, 2013. Proceedings, pp. 192-203

This paper describes a new approach to local messaging. Our application combines passive monitoring for smart phones and cloud based messaging for mobile OS (operational system). Passive monitoring can determine the location of mobile subscribers (mobile phones, actually) without the active participation of the users. Mobile users do not need to mark own location on social networks (check-in), they do not need to run on their phones the location track applications. In the same time, Cloud Messaging allows interested parties to directly deliver their information to mobile users who find themselves near a selected point. This is the main content of the service - how to combine the monitoring and notifications.
