Microsoft buys mileage-tracking app MileIQ
Microsoft has reported that it has gained Mobile Data Labs, the organization behind mileage-tracking application MileIQ. The terms of the arrangement were not unveiled.
MileIQ utilizes sensors as a part of your Android or iOS gadget to identify when you’re out and track how far you have traveled.
Mobile Data Labs says its application conveys a normal deduction of $6,500 a year. MileIQ tallies more than 1 million clients and has held the top spot in the App Store’s money area for 20 months in a row.
It doesn’t appear like Microsoft will kill off the administration at any point in the near future. In a blog entry, Outlook and Office 365 corporate VP Rajesh Jha said, “The group will keep on building and offer versatile profitability arrangements and hope to exploit experiences from Office 365 and the Office Graph.”
With its most recent buy, it’s turning out to be clear that Microsoft plans to overwhelm the efficiency space in mobile software. It obtained email application Acompli in December and transformed it into Outlook, then acquired Sunrise’s calendar application in February and purchased to-do tool Wunderlist in June.
