As of recently, mobile location-based tools and services have been getting a lot of attention in tech news. Developers are just beginning to understand the potential of an advanced location manager and how such can expand the capabilities of applications. Here at Socialradar, we want to make advanced location accessible to all developers, regardless of technical experience.

With devs in mind, our lead engineer, Victor Quinn, produced a short technical video explaining, step-by-step, the preliminary stages of LocationKit integration.

Here’s a short transcription from the video to get an idea of the language used:

“Next… we’ll jump into a terminal and we’re going to start with cocoapods! First, lets get in to the project directory and take a look… no Podfile. So run ‘pod init’ to create one and oops cocoapods isn’t installed here yet. Its okay, very easy to fix. Just run ‘sudo gem install cocoapod’… Now we’ll run ‘pod init’ again and this time… it’ll work!”

Check out the entire video below and begin to harness the most powerful location manager:
