Swarm LLC has just announced the release of Swarm, what they’re dubbing as a “social SDK for Android”. It’s essentially an SDK that will help devs put a social spin on their apps. Developers will have full access to leaderboards, Cloud data, private messaging, achievements, and more. Furthermore, devs can even earn money by using Swarm. For every user that signs up for a Swarm account through an app or game, the developer of that app gets revenue. It’s a win-win!
The full press release can be found below, and they’re encouraging developers to sign up for the beta and download the SDK from here. So, are there any devs out there that are interested in giving Swarm a try? Anyone already signed up for the beta? Sound off in the comments!
We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?
Miami, FL. – December 12, 2011 – Swarm LLC today announced that it will release Swarm, a free social SDK, to Android developers by the month. Swarm enables developers to rapidly deploy social features in new or existing games and apps so that they can stay focused on creating great content.
Simply put, Swarm is the easiest way to give your apps and games the social skills they need.
With Swarm, many social features can be implemented in a matter of minutes and without any knowledge of servers and databases. For example, developers will have immediate access to Leaderboards, Achievements, Virtual Stores, Cloud Data Saves, Private Messages and more.
All Swarm features have native Android APIs that can be seamlessly integrated into any game or app; by utilizing native Android, Swarm provides both developers and users with an optimal experience.
Swarm also offers a compelling referral-based monetization opportunity for developers.
