Have I convinced you contractors or consultants that are in need of business opportunities to look hard at the mobile space yet? If you haven’t thought about it yet then you should do so soon, else you’ll simply be watching others pass you by! Case in point, check out Exxon who have always had their handy station finder web service available to the public – a handy webmapping tool (est. 2001) enabling users to quickly locate stations near them – see http://www.exxonmobillocator.com/locator.php.
In keeping up with the times, and their users, Exxon has wisely announced the release of their mobile station finder app (iPhone and iTouch) . The mobile app provides drivers with real-time maps, driving directions and station information for more than 10,000 Exxon and Mobil retail locations across the continental United States. Like many mobile apps though, it appears this one has data that will stop at the 49th parallel! (unconfirmed) – Fuel Finder is available in the iTunes store
