Moab, Utah April 28, 2014- Rogue Wave Productions, l.l.c. visits Moab, Utah during the annual car show.
Last Friday, company founder, Glenn Smith arrived in the Moab area to promote the Moab Local Guide app for iPhone. "I forgot this was auto show weekend, this is great!" Smith said. "This is a fantastic opportunity to meet with tourist and observe mobile behavior." Glenn also shook hands and spoke with several Moab business owners to promote the app's geo fencing and available ad space.
Partnering with GeoMoby, located in Perth, Australia, Rogue Wave Productions and GeoMoby have leveraged development into leading edge mobile marketing with an extremely robust context-aware application integration. "The idea is to offer highly targeted ads from participating Moab businesses to active mobile device users visiting Moab, Utah." said, Smith. "The adoption rate is expected to be on target with the positive results we are reading and hearing about around the globe." More app users are enjoying targeted offers that business owners are sending them as statistics show definite user satisfaction. The trend is expected to increase across the board according to current indications.
Geo fencing is fairly new and not as popular in the United States as it is in Europe and Asia. Concerns about privacy aka market creep and utilizing an App that is full of spam is not attractive to American users. The Moab Local Guide has the ability to turn the GeoMoby service on or off at any time. Users are encouraged to turn the service on when they are on holiday or vacationing in Moab. "Europeans frequently visit Moab and we wanted to allow these users a chance to receive special offers from local tour guides, restaurants and retailers while they are in Moab." Smith, said. "With the ability to turn the service on or off at anytime while limiting the number of ads we place, we hope to help our users and Moab businesses to connect in ways that are mutually beneficial". Orders for ad placement can be fulfilled emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. Ad space is on a first-come, first serve basis.
The Moab Local Guide mobile app for iPhone is available in the German, Netherlands, Italian, French, Spanish, British Isle, North American and Pacific Rim app stores.

According to statistics observed from App Annie, a mobile application performance tracking entity, most of the current 1,000 plus users are from the U.S. and Europe.

Improved navigation, added features and larger font are all upgrades based upon recent user feedback. It is now possible to tap back to main menu items without exiting the app and most of the phone numbers and email addresses are tappable to save time and effort.

One of the most important new features on the app is the Geo Moby button. Here's why. It is very important to turn off the location services for Moab Local Guide app while the user is not in Moab, Utah. You can do this by going to your settings menu on the home screen of your device, find "privacy" and from that menu look for "location services". Tap that button and it will show all the apps that are activly running location services. Scroll down to Moab Local Guide and slide the green button until it turns gray or white (depending on your device model). This action will save your battery while not using the app in its full capacity.
When a user is in the Moab area or planning a visit, it is highly desirable to turn the location services back on by doing the reverse order of the instructions contained in the last paragraph. Location services allows the app to track your position so you can use the map functions inside the app and you will be notified of local offers as soon as you're near a participating businesses. For example, if you were within 30 meters or close to 100 feet of a Moab Pub, you might get a notification reading; "two for one burger night, see details!" This is just one of the many offers that are planned for the user's convenience and enjoyment.
The image below is a screen shot of the GeoMoby service page. Say you're in Moab and you turn your location services back on while you're on Main Street, Moab, Utah. Next, you want to tap the GeoMoby button from the main menu of your app and then tap the black "Start Service" button as pictured below. This action will initiate a location data search for participating businesses that are near you. The distances are going to be set fairly close to each participating business so users will not get a barrage of messages to sort through.
Once the user retrieves the message, there will be a call to action to claim the Moab Local Deal. Once the message is read, it won't keep popping every minute. Take the message to the business and claim the discount or special offer! When you leave Moab, stop the service and remember to turn your location services off again.
