The Ingeo iOS SDK by InGEO is used as a location library for iOS which powers an application with an always-ON (24/7) location awareness while keeping low battery consumption. It uses unique algorithms to adjust GPS power and monitoring mode according to user behaviour and whereabouts. Built to support iOS7 and iOS8, the SDK aims to get a stream of location data while in foreground or background. Battery consumption is just 2% per hour. It is written in Objective-C.
