An introductory listing of the Samsung SDKs that your apps can integrate to improve your users' UX (including: graphic presentation, audio playback and recording, input, and user management)

The following Samsung SDK functionality can fit right in to your Android app and expand your users' horizons.

Look S-Pen SmartClip Screen and Metadata Capture

  • Use their S-Pen to capture part of a screen that contains one or more views with SmartClip metadata.

  • Can review, copy, and use displayed and metadata text.
  • Can browse to bookmarks, and send URLs and URIs to friends using social media.

  • Handwritten input (using fingers, Samsung S-Pens, other virtual pens, and real pens and styluses) that enables users to feel as if they are writing on a notepad
  • Advanced editing features
  • Shape recognition and editing
  • Handwriting-to-text conversion

Samsung Motion SDK

Motion SDK

Enables your app to initiate actions based on your users' movement of their device. This imitation is determined by a variety of device sensors. Some sensors perform quickly, such as answering a phone call by recognizing that the user has moved the device to his or her ear. Some sensors perform over a longer period of time; for example, tracking the number of steps a user walks.

Camera SDK

Enables your Galaxy device enhanced camera-based apps to provide your users with state-of-the-art features, such as control-based hardware, convenient smart modes, various real-time filters, and fast processing of large images.
