Engine is a mobile Location Intelligence SDK that enables you to engage users in the right place at the right time. It allows you to request an alert if the device enters a location-based Circumstance, and ask which businesses or places of interest the device is currently at or near. Some features includes a client-side cache of Factual’s Global Places data, a machine learning based system for “attaching” devices to Factual places, a monitoring process for circumstance detection and more. Factual is an open data platform for application developers that leverages large-scale data aggregation and community exchange.

For many of us, a to-do lists are the arteries of our work-life. Some popular task apps that could be integrating the disparate parts of our lives are instead maintaining silos of task data.
