You can use our Radar Toolkit apps for iOS and Android to test Radar before integrating the SDK, or to test your implementation of Radar side-by-side with a complete implementation.


To get started, you'll need a Radar account. Don't have a Radar account yet? Sign up first.

  1. Download the app from the App Store (iOS) or Play Store (Android).

  2. Open the app and grant notification permissions and location permissions.

  3. Copy your Test Publishable key from the Keys section of the Settings page and paste it into the app.

  4. To track in the background, turn on Tracking (it is on by default). Then, select the Tracking Options preset to use, one of Efficient, Responsive, or Continuous. Learn about iOS tracking presets and Android tracking presets. Finally, on the notifications you want to receive, including Events (events received from Radar), Locations (location updates sent to Radar), and Errors (network, location, and permissions errors).

  5. Close the Settings screen.

  6. To track once in the foreground, tap the refresh button! If you correctly granted permissions and pasted your API key, and if you have connectivity, you will see your current state in the app and see your user on the Users page in the dashboard. If you are in a geofence or at a place, you will see events in the app and see events on the Events page in the dashboard.

  7. To track in the background, move more than 100 meters! Depending on the Tracking Options preset you selected, your location will update in the background. Note that location updates may be delayed significantly by Android Doze Mode and App Standby, iOS Low Power Mode, or if the device has connectivity issues, low battery, or wi-fi disabled.
