mobile-trackingAdvances in mobile technology have extended a smartphone’s uses far beyond placing calls and text messaging. Smartphones have become vital tools for use in both corporate and personal environments. One such tool derives from location-aware devices with mobile tracking capabilities.

Mobile tracking refers to the process of estimating the current position of a mobile device, stationary or moving. This estimation is facilitated by location services, already available in most devices. Location services leverage GPS, Wi-Fi and mobile networks to estimate a device’s current location and are already in-built within Android and iOS.
