Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced SDK (software development kit) for Android and iOS, which makes it easier for software developers to call an AWS web service API directly from a mobile application. With the mobile SDKs, developers can write software that uses AWS infrastructure in their mobile applications.
Using the AWS SDK for Android and the AWS SDK for iOS developers can integrate their applications with Amazon’s cloud-based Simple Storage Service (S3), the SimpleDB database and send messages using Simple Notification Service (SNS) and Simple Queue Service (SQS).
The SDKs include libraries, full documentation and some sample code. The libraries take care of a number of low-level tasks such as authentication, retrying of requests, and error handling.
The SDKs for iOS and Android can be downloaded from Amazon’s Mobile Developer Center, where developers can also learn how to use the SDKs.
