LocationKit is shutting down on April 30, 2017




For more than three years Social Radar (now a part of MapQuest, see more below) has helped hundreds of developers with their location needs with our LocationKit SDK. However, since the introduction of our PlaceKit Maps, it has become clear that the PlaceKit data and maps are the largest innovation in mapping since the compass (or something darn close). It is that technology that is driving our customers to become market leaders. Therefore, we have made the decision to shutter LocationKit and focus on PlaceKit.

As a reminder, beginning April 30, 2017 we will be taking LocationKit offline and will no longer support the product.

We have always had a customer-first approach and we thank you for being loyal and supportive customers.

We are committed to ensuring the transition away from LocationKit is as seamless as possible. Please reach out to help@socialradar.com with any questions, comments or for general support.

Also, in case you missed it, we were recently acquired by MapQuest. If you haven’t yet, check out MapQuest’s development tools and offerings. From geocoding, mapping, search and traffic APIs to location intelligence, they have a bevy of products that can help you reach your goals. See more here.

Thank you, The SocialRadar and MapQuest Support Teams in!
