Popular People – Finder App Passes 400,000 Downloads, 82 Countries and

Hits #2 on iTunes® Top Grossing App List

Los Angeles, CA May 26, 2010 –As it roars past 400,000 downloads and hits #2 on iTunes’ social networking Top Grossing Apps list, GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO.OB) subsidiary LOCiMOBILE’s GPS Tracking app has just launched on Apple’s iPad®, offering an iPad-specific full-featured version for about the cost of a grandé latté, $4.99.

GPS Tracking App—from the leader in two-way GPS tracking systems—is dedicated to parent company GTX Corp’s guiding principle, “With You.” GPS Tracking brings people together, locating family, friends and co-workers. GPS Tracking isn’t a toy. It isn’t a game. It offers privacy, lets users share and upload pictures to Facebook and Twitter and simply said, it’s the most direct, purest, location-based check-in app on the market. GPS Tracking is cross-platform compatible with LOCiMOBILE’s GPS Tracking apps installed on other devices and smartphones such as Apple iPhone® and iPod Touch®.

What will users be able to do with GPS Tracking? One click and kids can find each other at the mall, amusement park, anywhere. Parents can keep track of their children at school, with friends, or on the go. Employers can use it to keep tabs on employees in the field, or at conventions. Friends can find each other at graduation, a concert or across the country at a new collage. These are the edible fruits of GPS Tracking’s promise, deemed a futuristic concept in science fiction movies only a few years ago. Now this game-changing concept has fueled an explosion in location-based check-in technology—but GTX Corp has been a leader in this space for eight years—putting GPS tracking technology in the hands of athletes, health care professionals—even in shoes—and now, perhaps everyone with a smartphone.

“We’re delighted to launch our GPS Tracking app on the iPad,” says GTX Corp CEO Patrick Bertagna. “It provides industry standard location-based check-in to iPad’s projected 10 million devices, expands our brand onto Apple’s estimated 100 million i–Phone, Pad, and Pod user base and of course adds another commercial product to our revenue stream.”

iPad is the latest innovation that has helped propel Apple to a market capitalization in excess of $200 billion, just behind Microsoft, who famously invested $150 million in Apple back in 1997.

Analyst/commentator Steve Kanaval, of World Market Media concludes, “This is a unique space with wind at its back and certainly the apps market is a niche to watch.”

US kidnapping statistics have not been routinely kept, and is not one of the crimes included in the FBI’s national Uniform Crime Reporting database.

• There is approximately one child abduction murder for every 10,000 missing child reports.

• It is possible that the crime was committed by a family member. Finkelhor & Ormrod state that family kidnapping is committed primarily by parents, and has a 43% likelihood of being the female partner, much higher than in other kidnapping types.

• Family kidnapping happens equally to children of both sexes.

• 49% of juvenile kidnapping offences are family kidnappings, 27% acquaintance kidnappings and only 24% are stranger kidnappings.

• Acquaintance kidnapping involves a “comparatively high percentage of juvenile perpetrators, has the largest percentage of female and teenage victim, is more often associated with other crimes (especially sexual and physical assault), occurs at homes and residences and has the highest percentage of injured victims.”

• Stranger kidnapping “victimizes more females than males, occurs primarily at outdoor locations, victimizes both teenagers and school-age children, is associated with sexual assaults in the case of girl victims and robberies in the case of boy victims, and is the type of kidnapping most likely to involve the use of a firearm.”

It's smarter the have a Code Amber Alertag and not need it than to need it and not have one.

Do you need to have more confidence about the decisions you make regarding your medical care?

To get the health care you deserve take charge of your health care records and carry your medical history with you at all times. You will be an empowered patient with greatly improved the doctor patient communication and decrease the chances for medical errors.

If you have a chronic illness, take prescriptive drugs or suffer severe allergic reactions you need to inform the emergency or medical professionals treating you… tell a story that helps them help you.

Professionals generally suggest that you collect at least three generations of medical history. Relatives whose medical history has the most impact on you include your first- (children, siblings and parents) and second-degree relatives (grandchildren, nieces/nephews, aunts/uncles and grandparents).

The best place to keep that information is a Code Amber Alertag.

Parental kidnapping is the abduction and/or concealment of a child without the consent of the other parent. Over 200 cases of parental child abduction – child snatching, child stealing, and child abduction – occur each day in the United States.

When non-custodial parents resort to kidnapping, they believe they are acting in the best interests of their children. Although a minority of parental kidnappers may actually save their children by taking them out of the reach of the other parent, the motives of most parents who abduct their children are not for altruistic reasons.

Although the majority of parents who kidnap their children attempt to justify their behavior as the only way to ensure the best interests of the child, the child’s best interests are usually not considered.

Unlike other services, will post alerts for parentally kidnapped children and do its best to distribute the descriptions of the parties involved across the continental US and the provinces of Canada without the narrow requirements required to publish an Amber Alert.
