Daryl van Arkel (Director at Business Positioning Systems) added: "We have been blown away by the sheer volume of clicks and the growth in clicks from month 1 to 2.
This proves that users are extremely responsive to location based advertising and that brands can cash in on platforms such as Telmap without alienating the user with annoying advertising.
In addition the massive user adoption of the Telmap application following the on-going ad campaign has been amazing, with the application going to number 1 free app in the Apple App Store after only 2 weeks. We have no doubt the advertiser value will only grow with such user adoption.

With Widgets being commercialised from 01 October 2012(app update 22 September), advertisers have the ability to keep out their competitors with category exclusivity at great advantage to themselves, ie the platform only allows for either KFC or Nando's and the brand who owns the widget will likely benefit from their competitors clicks that were lost in the test phase.

About Widgets:
A branded widget is a brand shortcut which when clicked by the user brings up all branches of that particular brand nearest the users current location. The user can then either Navigate to the branch they choose, or call the branch, and even have the ability to Tweet about or update their Facebook status through social media integration with the application.
