Made for developers: Our SDK for location based service

The wingu API and SDK make it easier than ever to use proximity technologies in new and exciting ways, such as creating a simple app or adding proximity functionality to your existing application. Your imagination is the only limit to what can be done with the wingu SDK and API.


    If you need proximity functionality in your existing app, the wingu SDK is the best and easiest way to go. For more complex interactions, f.e. if you want a structured, extensible, and simple way to get data in and out, you’ll probably want to use the REST API.


    wingu’s SDK, API and platform integrate seamlessly with iOS, Android and web applications. And just in case: We have developers standing by to help your team to integrate wingu into your apps. But we doubt you’ll need them.


    Why use wingu SDKs / APIs

    1. Expertise.           

    First of all, nobody knows proximity like we do. Our team boasts some of the world’s top proximity experts. These are the people who build wingu’s SDK platform and APIs. We initially developed wingu for use in our own app, but quickly realized that it could be used in a large number of apps — far more than we could build ourselves. That’s why we created the wingu platform — to offer easily integrable proximity technology to developers for use in a variety of different apps and categories. Built by developers for developers.

    2. To avoid headaches.          

    Implementing proximity technology on your own is hard. Creating and maintaining a platform, SDKs and applications is no mean feat. It might seem like a good idea to build your own now, but 6 months or 2 years down the road, you might feel very differently. Let developers worry about other things, and use our expertise to take care of the proximity part.

    3 Proximity is our focus.

    We’ve been doing this for a long time. Proximity-related technologies evolve fairly fast and regularly, so keeping up with innovation is tough. And as the technology changes, how people use it will change as well. It takes complete focus to stay up to date. This is where we come in. We take care of the hard part so you can focus on what you do best.

    4. wingu SDK and APIs.

    wingu SDK is easy for developers to integrate, taking just a few minutes to get started. Our SDK provides everything you need to get started with proximity and wingu CMS functionality. For example: optimized, energy-efficient scanning functionalities, GPS background scanning, statistics, content display, webhooks and interactions. It’s all taken care of.
