No UDID? No problem. Socialize allows you to track your app’s activity without relying on your users’ UDIDs.
Apple recently announced the deprecation of UDIDs in iOS5, which means that Apple wants to wean developers off UDIDs because in the future they may no longer exist. Previously, UDIDs allowed developers to track specific users/devices that accessed their apps.
Luckily, Socialize is not dependent on UDIDs. Your end users can authenticate through a third party like Facebook or they can authenticate anonymously. Socialize then creates a hashed ID for your end users, allowing them to maintain personal privacy without comprising your analytics. By functioning as a single sign-on service, our SDK can replace the need for UDIDs.
Well, that was easy.
