Location Recipes



Knowing a device’s correct location and heading has enabled developers to take apps to a whole new level. Apps that utilize location services in new ways keep showing up and the potential use cases seem endless. You can build entire apps around these features, such as routing or fitness tracking apps; or you can use location services to enhance the user’s experience in more traditional apps. A good example of the latter is the built-in Reminders app, which can remind you of certain tasks when you reach a certain location, such as calling a friend when you get home.
