GeoAPI featured on TechCrunch, GigaOm

We are excited to have gotten media coverage in GigaOm and TechCrunch yesterday with the launch of our entity creation as well as addition of Foursquare, Weatherbug, and YouTube Media layers.

Liz Gannes, a seasoned technology journalist from the highly influential GigaOM writes "Pretty soon you’ll think an app (especially a mobile app) is dumb if it doesn’t know exactly where you are... GeoAPI hopes that it will be the service to make those apps smart, by translating users’ latitude and longitude into intersections, businesses and neighborhoods."

While MG Seigler, who recently wrote a thought-provoking piece about location for the industry powerhouse TechCrunch writes, "But even more interesting may be the other data GeoAPI is now allowing developers to access. Mixer Labs will begin pulling in data from Foursquare, YouTube, and Weatherbug to help provide richer data to its developers that use its services."
