Valet, car locator app for Android, has expanded beyond a handy reminder of where you parked your car. Valet was quick to jump on Google's recent release of location APIs and expand its functionality. Before the latest location APIs, a Valet user would need to manually start a timer and notify the app when parked so the app could drop a pin. With the locations APIs now integrated, the entire process becomes automated which eliminates the possibility of forgetting to set your app.
With the mobile app business rapidly growing and with digital content and digital superstores now being a major player in content distribution, so analytics data needs to shift accordingly. Having tools that enable developers and customers to better understand detailed user demographics and how people are actually using their mobile apps can only mean better business decisions, and of course, better revenue. Enter mobile app analytics service, App Annie; a sophisticated tool that tracks an app's metrics and provides accurate App Store market data. The App Annie public API adds even more convenience for App Annie Analytics customers by providing them with access to their account data and reports.
