TomTom has announced that its Routing APIs and the reverse geocoding part of its Search APIs have been chosen by Zenly, the social map app with leading real-time location technology, to make it easier for Zenly users to gather context about their friends. Zenly’s app lets users see where their friends currently are on a map, allowing them to message them in the app and get information on how to meet up with them.
Anders Truelsen, Managing Director, TomTom Enterprise, said: “Our collaboration with Zenly confirms that our personal approach to delivering high quality Maps APIs is resonating with developers. We’re delighted that a fast expanding start-up is trusting TomTom to support its growth.”
Laurent Cerveau, CTO, Zenly, adds: “Data accuracy is critical to the user experience in Zenly which is why we have selected TomTom as a provider of reverse geocoding and routing data. By using their APIs, we can immediately provide people with relevant information about their friends.”
