Trip Tracker is built using Microsoft’s Location and Observation Platform, LOOP (https://www.loop.ms) . LOOP is an Android and iOS SDK that provides location insights and analytics for your app.
Drop in one line of code and LOOP will turn location signals into insights you can add to your app including:
1. Automatic trip tracking – showcased in this app
2. Detect your user’s home & work
3. History of places visited
4. Geofencing triggers
LOOP provides a developer dashboard where you can view aggregate location stats on your users. You can upload your own GeoJSON files to see where users cluster or export the data for your own analysis.
All of our features are available via an easy-to-integrate, battery efficient SDK for Android and iOS. Our code for Trip Tracker is available on GitHub where you can view the source, file issues, or even fork our repo to build your own trip tracking app. View our code at GitHub
The LOOP SDK is currently in private beta. If you are interested in adding LOOP to your app, we want to hear from you! LOOP is free to get started, and easy to use. To find out more about Microsoft’s mobile location platform, please visit https://www.loop.ms
