SocialRadar's LocationKit SDK to be retired April 30, 2017

For more than three years SocialRadar (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.

Beginning April 30, 2017 we will be taking LocationKit offline and will no longer support the product.

We are committed to ensuring the transition away from LocationKit is as seamless as possible for our current customers. If you're an active user, please reach out to help@socialradar.com with any questions, comments or for general support.

Also, in case you missed it, SocialRadar was 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.
