Apple's iBeacon gets fun

Mike Elgan | June 9, 2014
Apple's iBeacon location technology used to be ignored or used on boring retail applications. Now it's showing up in consumer apps and being deployed in increasingly fun places.

An Android app called iBeacon Locate also identifies any iBeacon within range and tells you how far away it is and what its identifiers are. You can even tell the app to sound an alert when you come within range of an iBeacon.

Both of those apps let you play with iBeacons if you like them, and they can warn you about iBeacons if you don't. Either way, you're using iBeacons, aren't you!

Apple's iBeacon technology used to be boring. But it's finally getting interesting.
