Skyhook Wireless has launched Local Faves, a SDK that helps developers add location tagging, community and check-in functionality to any iPhone app.
Local Faves is designed to bring the contest of location to digital content-based apps, like music, wine, food, reference, and books.
Local Faves features fully customizable content tagging, allowing users to indicate that they loved, hated, ‘favorited’, saw, or read a piece of content within an app, and enables sharing of this content, and exactly where it was experienced, via Facebook and Twitter.
“In mobile we are starting to see location used in brand new ways. Location is no longer confined for use in navigation and social networking apps,” said Kate Imbach, vice president of marketing at Skyhook Wireless.
“We built Local Faves to encourage this trend and help developers change the way they think about and use location in their apps.”
Local Faves will be made available to developers in mid-April.
