We are excited to announce the release of our newest product: Context. Context is a platform that combines Skyhook’s rich location data with a layer of context to allow our customers to deliver personalized, relevant content and dynamic experiences to mobile users.

Today’s announcement brings about a fundamental shift in the way anyone, at any stage of development or growth, can add functionality and deliver experiences that were previously too costly, too time consuming or just plain hard.

We are incredibly proud of our team’s successes, as we have played our part in the mobile location revolution over the past decade - which makes us even more excited about today’s release.
