“There are close to half a billion connected devices in the world today, yet a very limited portion are actually connected to each other."
Samsung unveiled five new SDKs (software development kits) at its Samsung Developers Conference.
The new SDKs - which are also available in beta from now - display the electronics company’s dedication to arming developers with the tools to tackle multiscreen experiences across Samsung devices.
Dr Won-Pyo Hong, president and head of Samsung Electronics media solutions centre, said: "Samsung is creating one of the largest connected platforms spanning a broad range of devices that people love and use every day, including smartphones, tablets, TVs and much more.
"We are clearing a path for creative developers who want to participate in this multiscreen future"
The new SDKs include Samsung Multiscreen SDK, which is based on a cloud publishing system. The multiscreen SDK includes APIs for one-touch discovery and pairing of devices.
The Samsung Mobile SDK combines ten individual packages such as the S Pen, media control, professional audio, and gesture all combined to offer easier overall development.
Multiscreen gaming SDK is a gaming engine built on the multiscreen SDK. This allows games developers to create multiscreen gaming experiences, where gamers can play on any big screen TV using a Samsung smartphone or tablet as a console.
The Samsung smart TV SDK lets developers build apps for Samsung’s line of smart TVs. It now supports smart home development, closed captioning and improved content filtering and search.
Finally, the Samsung KNOX SDK provides security and management enhancements, which enables enterprises to support BYOB without putting security or privacy at risk.
The SDKs are available now.
