In this article, we’ll walk you through the geolocation app development, starting with the types of applications to required technologies and pitfalls to avoid when building a product.

Mobile apps can’t do without the features that cater to wide audiences and respond to expectations on a more targeted, local level. One of them is geolocation. As users have got used to the on-the-go functionality of Uber, Facebook, or Airbnb, they are eager to get the same experience on other apps.
