Resources for mobile developers

Wednesday, 30 November 2011

To help build upon an already thriving mobile ecosystem, today we’re excited to launch new resources for mobile development, beginning with the Twitter framework for iOS. Since the launch of iOS 5, we have seen an incredible number of applications incorporate the Twitter framework, including the launch partners we highlight at The iOS integration enables simple mobile sharing, and reflects our commitment to mobile Twitter integrations.

At our recent worldwide Developer Tea Times, we saw that Twitter developers are building amazing mobile products and have questions about best practices. To help you with these unique challenges, we now have dedicated resources for mobile developers, including myself. As a Mobile Partner Engineer here at Twitter, I have worked with OEMs, operators, platform makers as well as other start-ups to integrate Twitter into mobile products that are deployed around the world. By compiling the lessons that we have learned from working with developers into documentation, sample code and SDKs, our goal is to provide simple, consistent tools and resources for developers to build great mobile products that leverage the power of Twitter.

By lowering the amount of overhead required to utilize the Platform in your mobile apps, we hope that you can focus on the core of your own unique products. The iOS 5 integration is a great first step in that direction, and we look forward to working with the Twitter ecosystem in bringing similar solutions to other mobile platforms. If you have mobile development questions or requests for documentation, please post them in our discussion forums.
