The mobile app industry is one of the most growing industries around and owes much of its progress to Software Development Kits (SDKs). SDKs, 3rd party libraries, designed to help expedite the development process, as well as grant mobile apps with a bundle of capabilities and features of their choosing. At the tip of a publisher’s fingertip are a world of possibilities, all crafted to enrich apps and entice users to keep coming back. Analytics, Advertising, Engagement, Social and so on, help mobile apps provide the best product for their users.
