SmartyStreets, a developer of location data intelligence located in Provo, has released its US Rooftop Geocoding and US Reverse Geocoding cloud-based application programming interfaces. These new products will provide customers with the highest precision geocodes available in the market today, the company said. “The SmartyStreets US Rooftop Geocoder represents a new generation of geocoding accuracy. We are talking about true rooftop geocodes. You’ll see huge improvements in accuracy compared to less sophisticated services,” said Berk Charlton, director of geolocation intelligence at SmartyStreets. “For example, other geocoders struggle with providing detailed geocodes for individual units in strip malls or mobile home communities. Less accurate geocoding technology tends to clump these geocodes together. They don’t know the real location of each structure or suite. And in the case of rural parcels, these geocodes may actually be hundreds of feet from the rooftop. Parcel-centroid geocodes aren’t precise enough for many use cases.”
Salt Lake City’s GadgetGuard has announced that Black Ice Screen Protectors are now available for the new Apple Watch Series 6 and Watch SE and the new iPad Pro Air and 8th Generation. “These new Apple devices are major investments and should be protected as such,” said Ryan McCaughey, chief technology officer for Gadget Guard’s parent company, Penumbra Brands. “Gadget Guard is committed to making sure the newest generation of devices don’t break.” Black Ice Flex is specifically developed for the most advanced screens, including the Series 6 and SE watches. The company said it’s as smooth as the original screen, repels smudges and protects from breaks. The screens are also available with Guardplus screen insurance if anything does happen, reimbursing customers to fix or replace a damaged screen. They are available through participating retailers and Amazon.
Salt Lake City-based HealthTree, a disease navigation platform for terminal illnesses including multiple myeloma, has announced the addition of its latest feature, Myeloma Crowd Community Forums, a place for patients to have discussions with their peers on specific myeloma topics. The forums are organized by topic and are searchable, providing patients with a navigable place to ask questions and have discussions with other patients. “Facebook Groups are often a patient’s go-to disease navigation tool; however, they were not intended for this purpose and they can be difficult to use in this way,” said Jenny Ahlstrom, founder of HealthTree. “While Facebook groups can offer patients community and encouragement, HealthTree’s new Community Forums provide patients with a sense of community with their peers as well as support in the form of organized, searchable information.”
Hopsoft LLC, a Heber City creator of the web interface development tool Stimulus Reflex, has announced its new version 3.3 Morphs release that delivers a 400 percent to 500 percent productivity advantage compared to the teams working with previous-generation tools such as React from Facebook or Google’s Angular. Morphs make it possible for individual developers and small teams to produce user experiences in a fraction of the time, Hopsoft said. “You can’t change how the world builds software by being 5 percent better,” said StimulusReflex creator Nate Hopkins, citing the $10 billion-per-year application development software market. “You have to change the fundamental paradigm and be five, even 10 times better, faster and cheaper. That’s exactly what we’re doing with StimulusReflex Morphs.” Hopkins has used the Ruby on Rails web framework to build several technology companies over more than a decade.
