Native SDKs

Download the SDKs for your IDE. For iOS, you'll need to download and install Apple Xcode first. For Android, you can use Eclipse or Android Studio.

SDK Notes

  • After downloading the appropriate SDKs, head over to our Implementation Guides for a kick start.
  • If you're upgrading from our 1.x series SDK/APIs, review the Release Notes above for upgrade tips.
  • * This is our all-in-one ARC compliant build; however, several of the inbox files are not ARC compliant and may require you to adjust the build properties for a successful build. For more information, see the SDK implementation guides.


    All libraries that we use are compiled within our framework, including:
    • ASIHTTPRequest
    • SBJson
    • Reachability
    • UIDevice Identifier
    • NSString
    • GTMNSString
    • For build customizations, you can download our alternate SDK which has the above libraries moved out of our framework into the ExternalLib folder.  For example, if you have build conflicts with any of the libraries above, you have the choice of either removing the particular library from XtifyLib/ExternalLib/XXX.m and .h, or you can remove the conflicting files from your app.

  • ** BlackBerry SDK only works with our 1.x API stack.

While iOS development in Xcode is pretty straightforward, when you start development for Android with Eclipse there's a quite a bit of setup to do.  Check out this guide for help on setting up the Android Development Tools plugin for Eclipse. If you've never developed mobile apps before with either IDE, google is your best friend for finding 'hello world' tutorials.
