A software development kit (SDK) is a way to enrich an existing system with advanced functionality, meaning it is a kit that provides tools for developers to create applications on a specific hardware platform or within a software framework.
A mobile SDK allows users to create dynamic apps for either desktop or mobile. Developers would rely on the best mobile SDKs to build applications that are both robust and reliable.
According to Statista, “in 2018, 52.2 per cent of all website traffic worldwide was generated through mobile phones,” with almost 2 million apps available through Apple and Android portals. There is significant competition in this space due to the rapid growth of the smartphone market – developing apps that stand out is often down to the quality of the SDK used to create it.
What makes a good Mobile SDK?
A good kit would have an excellent track record of security; meaning no backdoors or untoward intentions for your customer’s data, like bagging their information through app permissions.
Easily Integrated and sustainable
Integrating a mobile SDK into an existing app should be easy, if it isn’t then you may need to reconsider your provider. It should not take a ton of time or man power to integrate an SDK, at the most a few hours.
Additionally, ensure that the app built using the chosen kit does not drain a consumer’s battery.
