Using Estimote SDK vs coding directly using Apple's Frameworks

I apologize if this question has been asked before, but I would really like to know what are the pros/cons of using Estimote's SDK vs coding directly using Apple's Frameworks?

I know Estimate makes use of these frameworks, but I'm struggling to understand why I would use their SDK?

Speed? Less Code to write? Better Ranging calculations?

Many thanks

Hi John,

Our SDK is a wrapper around the Core Location framework, so if you only need to only access the basic CL funcionalities, you'll be fine using only Apple's tools. However, Estimote SDK gives you ability to use features like Estimote Cloud connectivity, adjusting settings of the beacons and making use of the sensor input from accelerometer and temperature sensor.


Thanks Wojtek. That really helps a lot.
