10:08 <play> What is the difference between a trigger and a geonote?
10:09 <play> I'm trying to use your api with iOS, which one do I use if I want your platform to send a notification to the app when the user enters a certain region?
10:09 <patrickarlt> play: they are the same geonotes are just a subset of trigger with slightly differnt options
10:09 <play> which one do you recommend that I use if I just want notifications sent?
10:10 <patrickarlt> if its a onetime notification geonotes will be a little easier to use, but if you want it to happen every time go with triggers
10:11 <play> some feedback, it would be cleaner if the api calls were wrapped in some methods on LQSession instead of the user having to make NSURLRequests (just looks nicer) :)
10:11 <play> great, thanks

10:13 <play> does the example tracker app show making a request with parameters?
10:14 rknLA joined #geoloqi
10:14 <patrickarlt> play: let me ask really quick not all that familiar with out ios stuff
10:14 <play> sure, thanks!
10:16 <patrickarlt> play: i dont think it does ill have someone add an example to http://developers.geoloqi.com/ios/making-api-requests
10:17 <play> Great, that would be super helpful.
10:25 <play> Also, I'd like to ask whether the request is sync or async
10:25 <play> from ios
10:26 <aaronpk> play: API requests are asynchronous, which is why the runAPIRequest method takes a block as a parameter
10:28 <play> ok, thanks

19:35 <ciopte7> Hi is there anyone here who could answer a few questions for me?
19:40 <ciopte7> Bueller... Bueller
21:07 kyledrake joined #geoloqi
21:35 ciopte7 joined #geoloqi
21:35 <ciopte7> is there anyone here?
21:39 <aaronpk> hello
21:56 <ciopte7> Hi, I am looking to see if geoloqi would be a good fit for an application I am building
21:57 <ciopte7> I am building a freight marketplace in rails, and I would like to be able to check carriers in when they pick up freight, track them while in transit, and check them in when they reach their destination
21:57 <ciopte7> would something like that be possible?
21:58 <aaronpk> that certainly sounds possible. Do you have plans to build a mobile app?
21:59 <ciopte7> Eventually yes, but if I could stick to just a web app that would be ideal. ( I don;t have any experience with iphone or android development)
21:59 <ciopte7> I would be willing to learn though
21:59 <aaronpk> ah, well something will need to be running on the phone in order to track people over long periods of time
22:00 <aaronpk> we have a couple options for that, the titanium module makes it pretty easy to write a quick app
22:00 <ciopte7> what does the titanium module do?
22:01 <aaronpk> we have a module for titanium which handles all the location tracking and geofencing along with our API
22:01 <ciopte7> is that how the map attack game works?
22:02 <aaronpk> actually we wrote mapattack before we had the module available, so it was a bit harder
22:03 <aaronpk> we have a sample titanium app, Dino Deals: https://github.com/geoloqi/DinoDeals
22:03 <aaronpk> it won't be quite the same use case as what you're doing, but should give you an idea of what it takes to write an app
22:03 <ciopte7> Awesome
22:03 <ciopte7> I will check it out
22:04 <ciopte7> If I were near Portland, could I come to your offices and talk to you guys?
22:05 <aaronpk> We'd be happy to talk. We're usually pretty booked and/or traveling, at the very least we could get on the phone to start!
22:07 <ciopte7> ok so from looking at dino deals I can just add a separate location in my codebase for the all of the mobile related code
22:08 <ciopte7> it's just a sinatra app with the titanium code, and the iphone code all together
22:09 <aaronpk> well we really have two unrelated projects in the same github repository
22:09 <aaronpk> one is the titanium mobile app, and the other is the sinatra app which is the website
22:10 <ciopte7> I sent my contact information to your co. via the contact form on your website, I could also PM you my contact info if that is easier
22:10 <aaronpk> sure, pm your email address so I can make sure someone follows up
22:12 <ciopte7> ok, so is Titanium similar to Parse?
22:12 <aaronpk> no, Parse is a web API, titanium is a way to build apps by writing Javascript
22:13 <ciopte7> ok gotcha
22:15 <ciopte7> oh awesome, i can just write js and it will work for both android, and ios
22:15 <aaronpk> yep!
22:16 <ciopte7> are there any other docs that I should reference, or material that I should read?
22:16 <ciopte7> I think I will also have to use oauth2 is that correct?
22:17 <aaronpk> Have you explored our developer site much?
22:17 <ciopte7> I was sent a link by a friend to the map attack, so no
22:17 <aaronpk> don't be afraid of oauth2 :) You actually won't really be using much of it for the app, and the titanium module takes care of it mostly
22:17 <aaronpk> ah ok, take a look at http://developers.geoloqi.com/
22:17 <aaronpk> here's the titanium section: http://developers.geoloqi.com/titanium
22:17 <ciopte7> I already am going to use it for payments so most of the setup is done
22:18 <ciopte7> solid I will read through the docs, and the sample app tonight. If I have any more questions would irc be the best place to contact you?
22:19 <aaronpk> yea there's usually someone here, if you don't get a response in 10-15 minutes you could post in the forums https://community.geoloqi.com/
22:19 <ciopte7> thanks for all of your help!
22:19 <aaronpk> you're welcome!
