Unveiling the plug-and-play location stack for developers

Here’s the question I love to ask product managers and software developers,”How do you want to use location in your product?”

While the realm of possibilities and imagination never ceases to amaze, there are two clear themes that emerge from their answers:

  1. I am not using location as effectively as I want to
  2. I want to use location more but I don’t know how

HyperTrack is the easiest way to build dynamic location features. Until yesterday, it required you to know exactly how you wanted to use location before you started using it. Today, that changes with HyperTrack v3!

HyperTrack now supports React Native

Over the last few years in the fast evolving Javascript ecosystem, React has emerged as one of the top libraries for building UI.

Since its launch, React has redefined a lot of paradigms  by bringing fresh new take on web development.

Launch of React Native last year brought the power of React to native development, allowing developers to write React Components and generate genuine native interface using JavaScript. Continue reading

Using Fastlane to distribute private frameworks

At HyperTrack, we are building APIs and SDKs which enable developers to track and trace local deliveries. Developers integrate HyperTrack’s tracking SDK into the app that drivers use to mark the start and end of their pickup and delivery tasks. We deploy our SDKs as frameworks and distribute it via Cocoapods – a popular dependency management tool. Having lost few hours every time we deployed our SDK, we gave Fastlane a spin and found ourselves pleasantly surprised with the result.
