Verizon Wireless has introduced NAVBuilder Inside (NBI), to help developers add location, mapping and navigation to their applications across multiple operating systems.
NAVBuilder Inside allows for cross-platform development for Android, BlackBerry, Brew and Windows Mobile operating systems. Developers can use NAVBuilder Inside to create or improve applications to take advantage of in-demand LBS features, including directions, finders, alerts and geo-tagging.
“LBS features, such as location, maps and directions, are the hottest features in application development, especially when they can be embedded directly into an application so Verizon Wireless device users don’t have to leave an app to take advantage of the capability,” said Kristi Crum, director of consumer products, Verizon Wireless.
“With NAVBuilder Inside, we’ve made it simple for developers to use uniform APIs to quickly add the most-wanted features to their applications on many different operating systems and get them to market quickly.”
