You can use our Toolkit sample apps for iOS and Android to test Radar before integrating the SDK, or to test your implementation of Radar side-by-side with a complete implementation.


To get started:

  1. Download the app from the App Store (iOS) or Play Store (Android).

  2. Open the app and grant notification permissions and location permissions.

  3. Copy your Test Publishable key from the Keys section of the Settings page and paste it into the app.

  4. Optionally, log into Facebook to enable Places.

  5. Turn on the notifications you want to receive, including Events (events received from Radar), Locations (location updates sent to Radar), and Errors (network, location, and permissions errors).

  6. Tap Track Once to track your location once in the foreground. If you correctly granted permissions and pasted your API key, and if you have connectivity, you will see a Success message and see your user on the Users page. If you are in a geofence or at a place, you will also see your current geofence or current place in the app and see events on the Events page.

  7. Turn on Tracking to enable background tracking. Note that the SDK will wake up while you are moving (usually every 2-3 minutes), then shut down when you stop (usually within 3-5 minutes). To save battery, the SDK will not wake up when stopped, and you must move at least 100 meters from a stop (sometimes more) to wake up the SDK.
