Blogger Contest: The Future of Mobile Apps.

We are looking for creative writers/bloggers to imagine the future of mobile Apps. What mobile Apps will be used in the future and how will they empower us? What is likely to happen tomorrow that is still not possible today? Our partners at Radar are particularly interested in how location services can enable future mobile Apps. Yes, we all can imagine the App being used by some retailer to push some annoying ad notifications when we are passing by their store. But, this is simply boring. The question is how these services can be used for the greater good? Protecting the environment?  Safety? Humanitarian needs? Or are we all being too naive asking these questions?

For example, a shopping app can send a push notification when someone walks into a Walmart or a Starbucks. Or, a travel app may to change the in-app experience when someone is traveling and at an airport. Or a delivery app can help track all the delivery drivers. App developers can use our iOS and Android toolkits (software development kits, or "SDKs") to add these capabilities to their apps in just a few lines of code. Building these capabilities from scratch can take weeks or months, but integrating Radar takes only a few hours.
