During the last few weeks we made some improvements to our dashboard and to our libraries. Here is a short overview.
In iOS 10, Apple has changed their local notification management by deprecating the UILocalNotification and related classes, which were introduced in iOS 4. These classes are replaced with a new…
Asking your users for permission to use their location or send them notifications is a process that has to be done both on iOS and recent versions of Android. This guide explains:

A short update this time, but customers using Appcelerator Titanium will definitely be happy to hear this. We have added plugin support for Appcelerator Titanium SDK 6. This means you can add our plugin to your up-to-date Titanium apps as well.
Your dashboard is your control tower, the interface that allows you to create, manage and optimize your campaigns. It is crucial for us to provide you with a dashboard that gets the job done as painlessly and efficiently as possible. Over the last couple of months, we’ve been working on a new dashboard that not only looks better but mostly that delivers the best user experience.
We released a couple large features in the last couple of days. Polygon geofences support, a new beta version of our Android plugin and support for filtering notifications on Cordova and Phonegap.
We have been working the last couple months to create a new version of our Android plugin. During the design of this plugin we worked hard to make use of the latest features related to location accuracy and battery efficiency. Today we released the first alpha version of this plugin. Since there are a couple small breaking changes in the API for some users, we bumped the version number to 2.0.
During the last couple weeks we have been improving our dashboard to further improve the usability. One of the pages that has received some attention is the page you use for geofence creation and editing. Also we made the workflow for deleting geofences a little bit faster.
Our dashboard has undergone quite some changes this sprint; we have been busy building a new home screen on our dashboard! We now also support a bulk geofence upload, which allows you to easily download a template if you want to import a lot of geofences or beacons. Our dashboard also has received a lot of minor changes, like improved placeholders and clearer segmentation property names. Read all about it down below.
