Digium Delivers Mobile SDKs, Enables Rapid Real-time Development for Mobile Applications

Many of us have been waiting for the next wave of WebRTC to hit. While there are a number of WebRTC applications and a number of vendors have chosen WebRTC as part of their strategy, the explosive webification of communications has yet to happen.

Digium has just announced a set of new Respoke SDKs that could begin to change that. With these new WebRTC SDKs, it is much easier to add communications capabilities into mobile apps. The SDKs include everything from the basics for voice, test, and video, as well as notification integration and other capabilities. The Respoke SDKs handle identity, message delivery and call signaling along with managing notifications, both through the device as well as other mechanisms like SMS. Developers add the provided code to handle various events and to integrate Respoke features into their application. The SDKs mirror the existing Respoke JavaScript library, while adhering to best practices for iOS and Android. To further simplify development, the SDKs are integrated with package repositories CocoaPods for iOS and Maven for Android.

The SDK includes a wide range of libraries and samples, reducing the development time to deliver a mobile app with real-time communications capabilities. The results may be an increase in the number of new apps that enable real-time. The Respoke platform has been updated to support the features used by the SDKs.  A push configuration tab has been added to the Respoke Developer Console, enabling a developer to set the credentials and certificates required by Apple and Google and to implement the rules that control if and when push notifications are sent.

Access to the new mobile SDKs is included in Digium’s Respoke real-time communications platform that is available as a free trial. Pricing plans start at $10 per month for basic usage and scale up for enterprise customers and other large, custom applications.
