Austin, Texas [November 20, 2019] (ORIGINAL: BUSINESS WIRE) – Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (the “Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, today announced the expansion of its Location Based Services sample code to enable more use cases developers can implement in applications using Phunware’s Location and Mapping Software Development Kits (SDKs).
The sample code enhancements aim to improve the end user’s experience as they navigate through complex environments, as well as better serve users who may have accessibility needs. Developers are now able to easily implement these features in their applications with reduced implementation time. Key features of the release include:
- Walk Time Calculations: Calculate the approximate walk time once a route is selected including the actual duration of the walk and estimated time of arrival.
- Voice Prompts: Configure apps to read instructions via a smartphone speaker or headphones to a user while en route using the text-to-speech capability of iOS or Android devices.
- Off-Route Alerts: Detect when a user is off route and prompt them to either re-route or dismiss navigation.
The enhancements also come with designed user interfaces that eliminate the need for developers to build and design custom interfaces. These user experiences provide standard user interfaces that follow iOS and Android best practices and are already familiar to end users.
“We’re excited to announce the release of the enhanced sample code which will now make our Location Based Services module easier to implement, richer with commonly requested features and optimized for efficiency in reading and using the sample code provided with the product,” said Matthew Lindenberger, EVP of Product and Engineering of Phunware. “Releasing these enhancements to the sample code allows for developers to easily bring new technology into their mobile applications and create rich location-based user experiences.”
The Location Based Services sample code is now available for download in Phunware’s Github for both iOS and Android.
