Summary

In this introductory chapter, we have identified how LBS work — the buzzwords behind all things location and the importance of GPS.

Specifically, we discovered:

  • LBS, and its applications in the real world
  • How Apple uses Location in its iOS devices
  • GPS how it works
  • Non-GPS-based solutions for location

We also discussed new potentials in LBS markets — that of Indoor Navigation.

Now that we've got our feet grounded in location, we can move to the next chapter that introduces Apple's Xcode IDE and HTML5-based app development tools.
