Location Data for Mobile Apps and Happy Hour

Life moves pretty fast around here and there is a lot to talk about. First, a very exciting new opportunity for mobile app developers. How does free location data sound? You can location-enable your app on any phone in three easy steps. So what? Right? Well, what if I told you you could access your app users' location without affecting battery life or slowing down the user experience? You can, with network-based location, a new up-and-coming solution that should be part of your developer toolkit.

Go to the Developer Zone and check it out.

Second, if you're in the San Francisco area on Tuesday, September 27, 2011, I invite you to come hang out at our office in the FiDi, have a drink with us and learn more about our location-based APIs. We'll have snacks on hand too if you've been so busy developing apps that you haven't eaten in days. Go to our Facebook event page to RSVP.
