The world is growing smaller and more interconnected thanks to technology, but that doesn’t mean that society has stopped caring about location-based services. While the global mindset is strong, more niche communities have their own wants and needs, so there have been a surge of services to help cater to specific people in particular areas.

Take, for example, Lonely Planet Friends. This is an app that connects lone travelers to other travelers in the area. There are dozens of similar apps for people looking to party, date or just meet a new friend. Even large companies like Virgin America has jumped on the location-based service bandwagon. Their San Francisco terminal actually checks in on Foursquare!

Whatever your locale or niche, there is an app or tech gadget to suit your fancy.
