About Appdome-DEV™ Mobile App Integration Automation

Appdome-DEV helps you integrate your iOS and Android apps with SDKs and APIs from different vendors all in a few minutes.  You can save templates with these SDKs and APIs that can be applied to all of your apps Built on Appdome.  When you apply these templates to all apps when you add new apps they can also be subscribed to these Fusion Sets.  You can also setup Build-to-Publish APIs with Appdome-DEV to automate end-to-end mobile integration lifecycle.
Typically, mobile developers work hard to add and maintain mobile SDK/API and third-party service in apps. Creating continuous integration and continuous delivery is the way to improve mobile app delivery speed and quality. With Appdome, the line-by-line, manual development work required to add SDK/APIs and other services to apps is gone. This also includes any required mobile standard, framework, method and workflow needed inside the mobile app. Bottom line, developers can simply build great apps, focusing their attention on the use case and user experience needed in the app. After building the app, anyone can use Appdome to automatically add third-party services as a final step in the CI/CD workflow.
