This week, CITYDATA.ai released version 2.0 of the mobile data SDK. This is a significant milestone for our company and for the mobile developer community.
SDKs or Software Development Kits are pieces of embedded code that collect data from mobile apps in exchange for tangible benefits to the end-user. In our expert opinion, the ideal mobile data SDK should be based on the below-stated principles.
Lately, mobile location data is in high demand. A location SDK collects the user's real-world location from apps on the user's mobile phone. Such an SDK should implement the core tenets and also include the below-mentioned features.
Most countries have their own version of privacy regulation and consumer data protection law. The Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés or CNIL has an awesome interactive map that highlights the data protection and consumer privacy policies for each country. Singapore has the Personal Data Protection Act or PDPA. Australia has the Australian Privacy Principles or APP. Canada has the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act or PIPEDA. California has the California Online Privacy Protection Act or CalOPPA. The EU has the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR which went into effect just last week.
To comply with global privacy regulations, mobile data SDKs need to implement the below indicated 3 step process for explicit user notice and consent.
CITYDATA's shiny new GeoSDK implements the core tenets and features of an ideal mobile data SDK. Our SDK also includes the below features:
The GeoSDK is free to integrate, free to use, and free forever.
Not only is the SDK free, CITYDATA.ai even provides free geo-analytics and location-based insights for app developers. Our AI platform processes the mobile data sent by the SDK to infer people movement and construct actionable cohorts. Some might think we're crazy for not charging for our SDK; we would rather partner with developers at every given opportunity than monetize every aspect of our platform and service. For developers who'd prefer to look through the SDK source code prior to integrating with their mobile apps, we are very open (no pun intended) to opening our source code and sharing the inner workings. For publishers and enterprise customers, we also offer a white-label version of our SDK so that you can make it your own.
In our next blog post, we will dive deeper into how app developers can leverage the GeoSDK, analytics and insights to increase user engagement by customizing and personalizing the mobile app experience.
