Qualcomm Offers SDK for Snapdragon Android Phones
Jun 26, 2012, 7:14 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Qualcomm today announced the availability of a software developers kit that will allow Android application developers to access a wide range of features of its Snapdragon S4 processors that aren't otherwise accessible. For example, using the SDK and its associated APIs (application programming interfaces), developers can create blink and smile detection features that can taked advantage of the Snapdragon hardware. Other APIs let developers fine-tune apps using burst capture, surround sound recording, hardware echo cancellation, sensor gestures, low-power geofencing apps, and accurate indoor location/mapping. At first, the SDK will support devices with the Snapdragon S4 8960 processor, but Qualcomm expects future Snapdragon processors across multiple tiers will eventually be supported. A preview version of the SDK is available for download from Qualcomm's developer web site. Qualcomm will offer a full version of the SDK to device manufacturers and developers in the coming months.
