“By providing a single destination for developers working with Android mobile devices from Samsung, the forum has rich content with news and updates to developers, while active discussion spaces offer technical advice and support without comparison”, detailed in the announcement official.
The Samsung Android Developer Forum provides development tools to aid developers “working on complex projects” including SDK plug-ins for augmented reality and location-based services, sensor simulation, Remote Test Lab (RTL) to test the apps remotely on a real device controlled by Samsung, SDKs, video tutorials and hardware upgrades and software.
“The Android Developer Forum Samsung Android enables developers worldwide expand their reach and achieve even higher levels of quality when designing for Samsung devices based on Android, as consumers continue to experience high standards of Android applications available in Samsung Apps, our app store ” said Kang-hyun Kwon, Senior Vice President of Media Solution Center at Samsung Electronics.
