Add to that: real time updating of shared todo lists - I add an item to our 
shopping list while my wife is on her way home, and she gets a notifier of it 
when in the vicinity of a supermarket (or on the todo of my neighbour or 
parents, whoever happens to get near a supermarket selling the particular 
product - maybe I'll be there first)

In case of supermarkets there's not so much to win, but some other products at 
greater distances with friends happening to travel by it's even more useful.

Anyway, I have to get my programming skills on par first...
