Introduction

The Bazaarvoice Mobile SDKs make it easy to integrate Bazaarvoice's core products in your Android and IOS mobile apps. The SDKs are built with modularity in mind with a common core and analytics package that can be installed stand-alone. From there, you can add on whichever products and services you'd like. Use the guides and references on this site to install, integrate, and effectively use the Bazaarvoice Mobile SDK for Android and IOS with Bazaarvoice products, such as Conversations, Curations, and Shopper Advertising.

Benefits of Using the Bazaarvoice SDKs

The SDKs are used by several industry-leading mobile solutions. Some of the benefits include:

  • Faster product implementation: Less development means faster time-to-market.
  • Certification: You can ensure your application is using Bazaarvoice APIs with best practices in mind and following the API Terms and Agreements.
  • Accessibility: The open source configuration makes it easier to debug the SDK and understand how the SDK interacts with your application.
  • Support: We accept pull requests and bug reports right in GitHub, actively developing with regular releases and updates.
