Starting today, the Amplify framework adds support for Authentication workflows to its iOS and Android SDKs with a simple, declarative programming model. This includes automatic credentials management and refresh routines when leveraging either Amazon Cognito User Pools or Identity Pools, allowing you to seamlessly interact with services such as AWS AppSync, Amazon S3, Amazon Pinpoint and more. The SDK now includes a built in state management and notification system for developers to hook into and perform custom UI flows or screen transitions. It also is aware of the network state, allowing developers to build offline apps and protect against failures when making requests to AWS services.

Along with this release, all iOS and Android documentation has been rewritten and centralized along with the Amplify JavaScript documentation at Mobile and web developers now have a central location for JavaScript, iOS, and Android documentation when building apps on AWS.
