Push notification startup Urban Airship is closing the doors on all three APIs from the geo infrastructure company it acquired in October. The data behind one of the APIs, SimpleGeo Places, will be maintained by Factual and become part of its Factual API. Other SimpleGeo functionality is being folded into Urban Airship's platform.
The Urban Airship API will now be a whole lot more geo-aware. The push notification company has acquired SimpleGeo and its suite of APIs, which include Storage, Places and Context. The move brings one of the biggest names in the trend of APIs as products into another big name in the movement.
Location data and storage company SimpleGeo has announced plans to change its pay-per-use pricing for the SimpleGeo API, removing a free option for low volume users. Instead, the company will offer tiered pricing, with 60 day free trials at every tier.
