Apple buys crowdsourced location data company Locationary

Apple has acquired the Toronto-based Locationary, a small Canadian startup, backed by Extreme Venture Partners and Plazacorp Ventures. Multiple sources familiar with the deal tell AllThingsD it closed recently and includes Locationary’s technology and team, both. The price of the acquisition couldn’t immediately be learned.

    Smart move on Apple’s part. Accurate local data is still a bit of a hit and miss with Apple Maps in my experience. Glad to see they’re working to address it. (and recognizing when they need experts to help them out with their services).
