Radar- https://www.onradar.com is the location platform for mobile apps. Radar provides tools that help app developers add location tracking and context to their apps. For example, a shopping app can send a push notification when someone walks into a Walmart or a Starbucks. Or, a travel app may change the in-app experience when someone is driving or at an airport. Or a delivery app can help track all the delivery drivers. App developers can use Radar iOS and Android toolkits (software development kits, or “SDKs”) to add these capabilities to their apps in just a few lines of code. Building these capabilities from scratch can take weeks or months, but integrating Radar takes only a few hours.

Radar has three products:
- With Geofencing, Radar will tell you when a user enters custom regions (“geofences”) that you draw on a map. Geofences can be circles or polygons, and they might represent stores, neighborhoods, or other regions depending on your use case.
- Insights. With Insights, Radar will learn where a user lives and works, and tell you when a user is at home, at work, or traveling.
- With Places, Radar will tell you when a user is at a place, a chain (e.g., Starbucks), or a category (e.g., airport), even if you haven’t set up a geofence for that place.
In three simple steps you can start working with the radar technology
- Start tracking. Integrate the SDK to start tracking users. Or, test with our toolkit apps for iOS or Android.
- Add context. Generate contextual events by creating Geofences, turning on Insights, or turning on Places.
- Handle events. Handle events client-side or server-side via webhooks or integrations.
Radar technology is used in many apps, including Warby Parker, Via, SeatGeek, Chick-fil-A, Raise.
Radar strongly believes that location is the future of mobile. We’ve had smartphones for over 10 years, but most apps are not location-aware in the ways that we describe above. Radar wants to help developers change this.
