Bit6 Makes iOS SDK Available for Developers to Add Messaging Features to their Apps
Achieves major milestone with first Beta release; full-production release expected summer 2014
HOUSTON, April 30, 2014 – Bit6 (www.bit6.com), a communications as-a-service platform provider that revolutionizes how developers integrate communications into their apps, today released its first beta software development kit (SDK) for iOS. This initial version allows developers to easily integrate real-time messaging as well as picture, video, location, and voice memo sharing as a feature into their apps for iPhones, iPod Touch, and iPad devices.
The SDK, which is available now for download from http://bit6.com, comes with support documentation and a sample app with which developers can experiment.
"We are very proud to have achieved this milestone of bringing our first SDK to market," said Alexey Goloshubin, CEO and CTO of Bit6. "The developer community has expressed great enthusiasm, and we are excited to see the creative ways messaging features will be incorporated into apps with this SDK."
Bit6 provides developers access to a communications-as-a-service platform that takes all the complexities of building a communications stack from scratch and simplifies it down to several straightforward lines of code. Developers do not need any additional infrastructure, software, or licenses to utilize these services, which dynamically scale up or down as needed.
The Bit6 platform is a proven real-time cloud-based communications platform that already powers Voxofon's mobile and Web applications. Using the Bit6 platform, Voxofon developed capabilities that allow free app-to-app texts and calls across any iOS, Android, Windows or Blackberry device and enables inexpensive international calling and SMS messaging to any phone number including feature phones and landlines. Each month, the platform supports millions of calls and messages across more than 200 countries.
This beta release is the first of what Bit6 expects to be regular releases that will continually increase functionality and add support for more platforms. Bit6 is targeting the full-production launch of its communications platform by mid-summer 2014.
