It would be great to see how apple react to this

@suholet Just wait a year - they'll copy it, reduce some stuff, give it a stylish name et voilá.
@suholet yep, let's see. Usually, it takes time to implement these API's, especially from big corporations. Comparing to the Google's one NE SDK provides a way more information. If you wanna try it, feel free to subscribe http://www.numbereight.me/#signup and I'll send you a private beta version :)
@andmitsch @suholet but we are already here! No need to wait for Apple ;)

@suholet isn't Proactive already part of iOS?

@maarten could you give me some examples? I don't think that ios can tell to your app something like this "whenever the user is walking and their headphones are plugged in".

@sbozhko thanks for suggestion. I've checked your site and find it interesting but very raw. I'm not a programmer so I'm not convinced to spend my time and try your technology. It would be great if you had some success stories and example projects. This way I could try it on and make another decision. Anyway, I wish you luck.
@suholet thanks for the feedback. Agree, it still needs to be improved, but I'm working on it, particularly on success stories and use-cases. Regarding example projects, we've already created a sample music app (http://www.numbereight.me/music), which is available on iTunes. It uses NE SDK. Usually, along with a private beta of the SDK, we send an example project to demonstrate the technology. But sign up (http://www.numbereight.me/#signup) is needed to get it :)

@suholet No, not like that. But iOS makes suggestions based on simple activities. Read about it on MacRumors: http://www.macrumors.com/2015/05... (I wouldn't be so happy if every app could decide for itself when it would be suggested. Already dialing down on notifications. )

I love this direction. Reducing friction and focusing on push versus pull. I want content to be pushed to me when I need it, rather than needing to fetch the information manually. Very exciting 🙋

Awareness API combined w/ Instant Apps will lead to some very cool apps
