How are beacons different from GPS & NFC? Are beacons better than GPS for geo-location?

Beacons are definitely more effective in terms of range, they function between NFC (too narrow) and GPS (to wide).

They are ideal for detecting smartphones, and communicating with apps on devices when they are indoors, where GPS isn’t always functional.

Also they are the first proximity technology that is supported by all major platforms, being more popular than NFC.
