RADAR - the location platform for mobile apps


Mobile phones - everyone has them. Mobile apps - everyone uses them. What's a phone without apps today anyways? We surely don't use them only for calls - and we have apps for that too, don't we?

Introducing Radar (app developers - this one is for you!). Ever thought about adding location tracking and context to your apps? Instead of building everything from scratch, you can integrate Radar into your apps with a few lines of code via their iOS and Android toolkits.

So, what is Radar actually? Radar is the location platform for mobile apps, which provides tools that help app developers add location tracking to their apps. Meaning an app can send push notifications, or help with tracking when the user is at a certain location. To make it even more simple, if you are entering a store like Walmart or Starbucks, a shopping app will send you a push notification promoting their product, which gives you more insight of what kind of products are in offer, any sales available and similar. Another example, delivery apps can help you track delivery drivers so you can always know when to expect your orders/mails etc. Or, a travel app can change their in-app experience when someone is traveling and at an airport. Cool, right?

Radar has three products: Geofencing, Insights and Places. First thing's first, what is Geofencing? - A technology that defines a virtual boundary around a real-world geographical area. That means, you draw certain regions called geofences, which usually represent stores, neighborhoods or any other region you choose, on a map and Radar uses Geofencing to tell you when a user enters those geofences.
With Radar's Insights you will learn where a user lives and works, and know when a user is home, at work, or traveling. With Places, Radar will tell you when a user is at a certain place, a chain, or a category, even if you don't set up a geofence for that place.

YOINS - sweater weather!



coffee pullover // grey side split sweater // yellow knitwear



It's here - sweater weather! Most people's favorite time of the year. I like it too (think about all those layers of clothes duuh), I just can't stand the cold. Talking about fashion, Yoins blogged about beautiful sweater guides (click to read) for autumn and winter. Autumn is, unfortunately, over and we are entering into winter days (just look at all the snow outside), so if you are looking for advice on how to stay cozy and warm and still look fashionable, make sure to read their sweater guides.

Established in 2014 with the mission to give young people the opportunity to express themselves through fashion, Yoins is an online shop whose name comes from your inspiration, and they want to be your inspiration to step away from the crowd and express your inner self. And while you might be browsing for those warmer clothes, you can still check out other products they offer, like the sexy lingerie. They also have quite beautiful two piece outfits

As always, I chose a few favorite items from the site and created a mini wishlist - turtlenecks and cold colors. If you'd like to shop the items from my wishlist, click on the links below the photos!

PATREON


As I have a hard time expressing my feelings through words and generally interacting with people, I use typing and photography to do that for me. Hence this blog.

And while this blog is a platform where I can share my art, I still hope I can use it to earn money (which I ocassionally do by writing sponsored posts). Hence, Patreon.

By pledging to be my patron, you can get early access to my work, as well as access to my unpublished posts and photos, and all other posts not being shared here. You can also choose your rewards. For now you can download my images in high resolution and get a collection of 6 prints with a handwriten note sent to you. If you have any reward ideas, please write them in the comment section or drop me an e-mail (see contact page).

As for me, your pledges would help me fund my equipment and allow me to continue my creative work, and maybe earn some pocket money.

If you'd like to become a patron, you can do that HERE. A big thank you! ♥

For any questions, suggestions feel free to e-mail me.

p.s. Have you thought about starting a Patreon page? You definitely should. Share your art and find supporters who'd pledge for you. Sign up for Patreon here

A serious face and a red nose. My reaction every time the snow falls. A winter wonderland is always beautiful, but I'd prefer to see it on the pictures only. What this inner summer child hopes for, is a winter without snow. A girl can only dream though...
