API Mashups (1)
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.
A little over a month off of its pricing structure changes, location database-as-a-service company SimpleGeo has updated its SimpleGeo Places API with more data based on an earlier partnership with Factual. In addition to new data, there are new ways to access it, as well as some changes to the structure of the data returned, so if you've already built on the API you will want to take note.
