Events API for App Development

Access PredictHQ’s intelligent event data to make App Development smarter

Events API for App Development

Multiple data streams in just one API

Just about every man and his dog has a smartphone these days, and they’re undoubtedly filled with apps that can do this, that and the other thing. But the challenge many developers face is being able to create an app that cuts through the noise and can be truly helpful to their users. And that’s where PredictHQ comes in.

PredictHQ’s API enables businesses to discover location-based data that can enhance their app development and help them create iOS and Android apps that will truly be useful to their users. We collate and aggregate scheduled events like concerts, sporting fixtures, school holidays and public holidays, along with unscheduled events like airport delays, natural disasters, severe weather and terror, into one place, so you know what, where and when events are happening. Use events in your app by sending push notifications to your users based on where in the world events are happening in relation to where they happen to be, or simply as a way for them to know what’s going on around them. We rank each piece of event data we store so you can filter from major to minor impact and see at a glance which events are more important to focus your energies on.

Ranked Events

Not sure what events matter most? Don’t worry - we’ve sorted them for you

PredictHQ’s API gives you access to millions of scheduled and unscheduled global events across 18 event categories - and counting - and enables you to find relevant events with a simple REST call. Our smart in-house ranking algorithm assigns a numerical rank to every single event we store, so you can filter from major to minor events and see at a glance which ones you should pay special attention to. Then, ensure your app is the most popular on the iOS and Android app stores by making it truly useful to your customers. Use our location-based data to send push notifications to your users based on where in the world they are, and where events that could impact them are happening too. For example, if you’re in the business of air travel, create an app that informs travelers flying with you about events happening near where they’re staying. If you’re a taxi company, send push notifications to your users about upcoming concerts, and offer them discounted rates to travel with you. If unscheduled events like natural disasters or airport delays occur, send push notifications to your users giving them information and updates about what they can do.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

The rise of data and technology, along with the widespread nature of smartphone and application usage means that businesses can communicate with their customers like never before. But who has time to trawl through endless pages of data to discover what to communicate to your customers about? Not you. That’s why PredictHQ does the hard yards for you. We pull hundreds of high quality data streams and third party APIs into one smart information source (we even pull data manually when we have to) so all the scheduled and unscheduled event information that could impact your industry can be found in one handy place. Lookup events by searching within a geographical radius, using IATA codes or geographical place names. You can query multiple categories and locations at the same time, and get JSON responses. Integrate our data with any platform thanks to our easy-to-use API. We have Python and JavaScript SDKs available too. We use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication, and access tokens are required to grant application access to the tools available in the API. Your developers won’t need to spend precious time capturing, cleaning and maintaining disparate data sources because we do it for them, plus our API is versioned for easier maintenance, reducing operational costs and making event visibility and data intelligence just a few steps away.
