GyPSii announces new and improved feature set

GyPSii is a mobile lifestyle application – a location-based friend-, place- and event-finder, a networking site for communities and a home to share pictures, video, audio, and content with friends and groups. GyPSii also uses location information to geo-tag entries and to provide a location-based database of User Generated Content.

The new features available to GyPSii users include:

  • New and improved UI for Windows Mobile users, plus speed improvements that reduce start-up time for the application.
  • Extended contact invitation methods – members can now invite contacts through Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, AOL, FastMail.FM, Gmail, GMX, Hotmail, Indiatimes, Mail.com, Yahoo, Facebook, Friendster, Hi5, Linkedin and MySpace
  • Event feeds on member profiles and homepages
  • Comment feed subscriptions – enabling users to subscribe to comment feeds on GyPSii Places and member profiles.
  • Mobile PlaceMe reminder – emails members after they have carried out a PlaceMe using the GyPSii mobile platform, allowing them to share it with friends or edit the content.
  • Friend search filtering – enables friends to be views in order of when they joined GyPSii, their proximity and in alphabetical order.

According to GyPSii CEO Dan Harple, in the coming months the company expects to release further significant GyPSii developments in mobile advertising, maps for mobile, Cell ID and WiFi positioning, and support for more mobile devices.

Gypsii's co-founder & vice president, Sam Critchley will be a member on the panel discussing user-generated content and next-generation navigation at Telematics Update's Navigation & Location Europe event in Amsterdam on 4-5 June 2008.
