The Geonotes app is built on the Geoloqi API and is an extension of the Geoloqi demo app, taking advantage of the battery and accuracy improvements in the new SDK (software development kit). The app also provides users with access to free geo layers that the folks at Geoloqi spend their time making.
Cross platform Development Tools have been steadily gaining adoption among developers. Geoloqi, a platform for location-based services has tapped into one such platform, Appcelerator to provide a powerful location services component that aims to make life easier for developers who have adopted Appcelerator and are planning to provide location awareness in their applications.
Geoloqi has added added platform-specific SDKs to its collection of developer tools for real-time location. The SDKs interact with the Geoloqi API and have native tools to improve battery life and simplify common location-based app features. The company hopes the new enhancements will encourage broader use of its platform, which has already found fans in government and enterprise.
Two days ago we wrote about Urban Airship grounding SimpleGeo APIs. While one API was being taken over by another company, it left SimpleGeo's innovative flagship geo storage product stranded. Another company has quickly come forward to pick up the slack. Geoloqi created a SimpleGeo importer that will move storage from one platform to the other, where places can then be queried by the Geoloqi API.
Urban Airship, the API company providing push notifications to smart phones, is now powering notifications on the new Amazon Kindle Fire. The company's Urban Airship API simplifies push notifications for developers using iOS, Blackberry and Android. Because Kindle Fire is built on Android, the company's work to integrate push to the Fire was already done.
In this post I'll describe how we planned, built and tested a truly real-time location-based game with Socket.io, Redis, Node.js, and what we learned along the way. Over the past few months, we've spent the majority our free time building a real-time game as a test for our location platform, Geoloqi. We call the game MapAttack! due to its map-based nature. Two teams compete to capture the most points on the gameboard. The gameboard, in this case, is the city streets of the neighborhood the players are in.
Location is all the rage these days, especially in the mobile world. Geoloqi and its location-sharing Geoloqi API allow developers to easily integrate location awareness into their applications. Its Geofencing API is especially neat, as it allows developers to add triggers based on locations, time, and travel speed, or any combination of the three. It just launched a new site in an effort to reach out to more developers.
