Written by Lucy Black

The Amazon Web Services SDKs for Android and iOS have been released for general availability.

The AWS SDKs for Android and for iOS makes it easier to call an AWS web service API directly from a mobile application. They provides libraries that hide much of the lower-level plumbing, including authentication, request retries, and error handling.

This means developers can add the following infrastructure to their mobile applications:

  • Storage—Store and retrieve any amount of data using 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 SQS, and Amazon SNS. Send bulk and transactional email to customers using Amazon SES.
  • Compute—Launch and manage Amazon EC2 instances with a number of features for building scalable, failure resilient, and enterprise class applications.
  • Monitoring—Monitor your Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon EBS volumes, Elastic Load Balancers, and Amazon RDS database instances in real-time with Amazon CloudWatch.
Both SDKs include code samples showing how to use the libraries and reference documentation.
The SDKs also handle credential management using temporary security credentials provided by the AWS Security Token Service and this release provides examples that show how to more securely access Amazon Web Services using a token vending machine which distributes temporary security credentials to the mobile application.
