Samsung has been hosting a Developer Day at the Mobile World Congress since 2011, and this year’s event will see Samsung introducing new SDKs for its applications. Samsung announced these SDKs at its first independent developer conference in San Francisco last October.
At MWC, the South Korean manufacturer will launch newer versions of the Samsung Mobile SDK, Samsung MultiScreen SDK, and Samsung MultiScreen Gaming Platform. Samsung’s Mobile SDK is a single package that consists of over 800 APIs for utilities like S Pen, professional audio features, media and gesture controls for Samsung smartphones.
The MultiScreen SDK has functionality that is similar to what Google offers with the Chromecast. By using MultiScreen, users will be able to stream video content across various Samsung devices. The MultiScreen Gaming Platform allows users to stream games from their Samsung devices to TVs.
The developer day event will be held at the App Planet section of the MWC, an exhibition space dedicated to mobile apps. Samsung will set up booths for partners interested in demonstrating apps that are built using the new SDKs. In addition, Samsung will also showcase apps that won honors at Samsung’s Smart App Challenge, an app development challenge held in 2013 to design apps for the Galaxy S4. The booths will be open on all four days of the MWC.
