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. The maps are truly beautiful, and they zoom with the speed and smoothness of a video game. Check out their website for comparisons to Google and Apple Maps.
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.
