Announcing Mobile SDKs for Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services is pleased to launch two mobile SDKs:

The mobile SDKs make it easier for software developers to call an AWS web service API directly from a mobile application. Previously, developers either wrote their own libraries to handle the HTTP connection, request retries, and error handling, or built additional infrastructure to proxy the API requests through a server fleet. With the mobile SDKs, developers can write software that uses AWS infrastructure in their mobile applications, including:

  • Storage—Store and retrieve data using Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
  • Database—Add a highly available, scalable, and flexible non-relational data store using Amazon SimpleDB with little or no administrative burden.
  • Messaging—Integrate reliable, highly scalable mobile-to-mobile communication into applications using Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS), and Amazon Simple Notifications Service (Amazon SNS).

Example applications developers can build with the mobile SDKs include:

  • A media application that uploads photos, videos, and more to Amazon S3 for world-wide distribution through Amazon CloudFront.
  • A social game that shares moves, high scores, and other data between devices using Amazon SimpleDB.
  • A messaging client that broadcasts messages between devices using Amazon SQS and Amazon SNS, without requiring any additional server infrastructure.
