Every SDK company in the market will promise that all they need from you (as a developer) is 5 minutes…
5 minutes and you are set.
This is also known in some circles as the “5 minutes SDK fatigue” but marketers will continue to brag that all they need is for you to spend 5 minutes with their SDK.

We know better.
What you need is 5 minutes and 45 seconds to implement our SDK for iOS but only 3 minutes and 15 seconds for Android… It is not that iOS is that much more complicated but we just ended up with a longer video.

Yes, you heard correctly.

The SDK now in version 4.47 is available for download. I would like to share with you a few highlight on what is new and why you should use it:

Changes to CoreLocation – new SDK for iOS
iOS8 introduced a big change to the mechanics CoreLocation. As a result, many things that worked great until iOS8 do not fare so well any more. Our team had to go back to the drawing board, rethink the basics of running an always-on location and rebuild it, optimizing sensors sampling and managing power consumption.
