These days, we see little toddlers and elderlies using using iOS or Android smartphones. With smartphones, users can download and use all kinds of mobile apps. Some apps come with their phone and many can be downloaded using the Play Store.
Those of us who drive or travel would have used or are using one of the various navigation apps downloaded onto our smartphone to locate unfamiliar places. These navigation apps work on our smartphones or tablets with GPS support. The apps provide detailed navigation information using user-submitted travel times and route details, while downloading location-dependent information over a mobile phone network. Most of these navigation apps are free to download and use.
Whenever we use a navigation app, we can share real-time information that translate into traffic conditions and road structure. We can also report to the community on traffic, accidents, police traps, blocked roads, weather conditions, and etc. The navigation app then collects and analyses the provided information to provide other users with the fastest and nearest possible route to their destination.
Everyday new mobile apps using location platform such as Radar, etc. are being launched and released. Business organizations are taking their business to a higher level by launching their own location platform by enabling everyone in their organization to discover, use, make, and share location information on their mobile device, from anywhere, at any time.
Geofences represent regions or places monitored by your organization. As an example: a geofence might represent a retail store, a neighborhood, a delivery, and etc. Compared to the native iOS or Androil geofencing, Radar geofencing is more powerful with cross-platform support for unlimited geofences, polygon geofences, and stop detection. Geofencing works in the foreground and in the background. Background tracking uses less than 2% battery per day for most users.
All geofencing and event generation happens server-side. This allows Radar geofencing to be more powerful than native iOS or Android geofencing, with cross-platform support for unlimited geofences, polygon geofences, and stop detection.
Using Insights, user’s location data is being stored by Radar. If Radar is unsure, Radar may not generate an event. Insights works in the foreground and in the background.
