Telmap Twitter Q&A session - Summary
Last week we hosted a Twitter Q&A following the launch of our new Blackberry app in the UK. As you will see from the selection of Tweets below we saw some key themes emerging. This included interest in our ultra-local content in the UK. We are pleased be working with local and global brands such as Barclays Cycle Hire and Trip Advisor and we are still growing this list. Another theme that was visible throughout the Twinterview was location-based advertising and premium content. We also see these as really important features to bring to the application to create the best experience possible for BlackBerry users.
If you think something was missed and you have a question please feel free to send them through and we will answer them.
@Telmap How do you generate revs from the app as it's free to download? Is it compatible with ALL BBs? #telmapnavigator

@Telmap If Telmap can make mobile advertising work as part of their LBA strategy, would they be willing to share the model with Facebook?
@mobilesquared Our LBA strategy is about offering the right thing at the right time in the right place.
@mobilesquared If Facebook can support it, we will be more than happy to work with them
@Telmap can you save a home location and other favourite locations? #telmapnavigator
@sophiecharara yes, you can save home and work locations under my places section as well as create a shortcut to your device home screen
@Telmap What competition (appetition :-) ) do you think the app will face from rival app providers?
@mobilesquared The reality is that currently nobody offers that much value for free #telmapnavigator #BlackBerry
@Telmap What level of BB user penetration/what level of repeat usage do you anticipate?
@mobilesquared #telmapnavigator we are aiming at being the no. 1 nav app for #Blackberry users with 15-20% penetration and 40% repeat usage
