About BlackBerry Dynamics SDK implementation

Appdome is a mobile integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that allows users to add a wide variety of features, SDKs and APIs to Android and iOS Apps. Using a simple ‘click to add’ user interface, Appdome allows anyone to easily implement the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK to any mobile App – instantly, no code or coding required.

Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. For example, there is no Appdome SDK, libraries, or plug-ins to implement. The iOS (.ipa) or Android (.apk or .aab) App can be built in any development environment such as xCode for iOS and Android Studio, or non-native environments like Xamarin, Cordova, and React Native. Likewise, there is no requirement to implement any part of the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK or even have access to source code for developing BlackBerry Dynamics SDK capabilities for Android or iOS Apps.

Appdome’s technology adds the full BlackBerry Dynamics SDK, as well as standards, methods or protocols necessary, to mobile Apps automatically. After using Appdome, mobile Apps will leverage the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK capabilities as if they were natively coded into the App.
