My thanks to Mapbox for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. The Mapbox iOS SDK is the new open source framework for making your app location-aware. It comes with beautiful vector maps for any scenario: detailed streets for navigating cities, terrain for adventuring, and satellite imagery for seeing the world up close.
You can even find out how users interact with your map. The analytics dashboard provides a continuously updated view of your user base, from places where your app is popular to better metrics around uses of your app.
Start developing with the Mapbox iOS SDK for free today. Mapbox’s Cocoa API works just like Apple’s MapKit — just swap out
MGLMapView. Their “First Steps With the Mapbox iOS SDK” guide shows just how easy it is to switch.
