Integrating the LiveLike software development kit (SDK) into your apps and websites allows you to start driving user engagement and building a strong sense of community quickly. The LiveLike SDK consists of software libraries, developer tools, documentation, and API access, and contains everything your team will need to get started integrating from day one.
In this article, we’re outlining the four major reasons your team will love using the LiveLike SDK, from our focus on developer empowerment to our familiarity with the importance of integration efficiency.
Quickly Iterate on iOS, Android and Web Apps
A basic integration can be done the day the LiveLike SDK is added to your project. There are a lot of features included, but most of them work independently, and allow you to pick and choose the ones that are most important to you, integrate those, and save the rest for later. So if, for example, you care most about building community first, you can focus on integrating those community-building features up front.
Later on, you can layer in gamification features like points and leaderboards to reinforce the user behaviors that are taking shape in the growing community. This approach enables you to launch sooner, gather feedback from users faster, and iterate more quickly.
Extend a Strong Capability Base
The LiveLike SDK provides a rich collection of functionalities that you can use as a baseline to build your own unique experiences on top of. Your vision probably relies on some essential capabilities and assumptions, such as the ability for users to weigh in with their opinions, or that users should earn rewards for participating in certain activities. You can take those abilities for granted in your products and expand upon them, so that you can focus on the end goals instead of the basics.
In that way, LiveLike is providing a head start rather than a limit. Building with LiveLike allows you to avoid spending resources creating and maintaining basic requirements, giving you more room to execute on your roadmap and experiment with new use cases.
Benefit From Product Innovation
LiveLike is constantly launching new features and discovering new use cases as we work with others across different industries and regions. Teams that work with us can take advantage of new features as we launch them, as well as the best practices we develop and the insights that we can gain from our visibility into product launches around the world. New versions of the SDKs are released frequently, and many new features are only an upgrade away.
Maintain a Developer-First Approach
Our SDKs are intended to empower developers, and we ensure that by designing them to be customizable. The SDK comes with some useful presets, but those can be torn down or rearranged into something more custom for advanced integrations. We understand that developers need to be able to take our features, and remix and extend them in order to achieve the pixel-perfect results they’re looking for.
To support that, we have lots of documentation and a growing library of sample code. We maintain libraries for all major platforms, including iOS, Android, and Web, with more to come in the future. We also provide full access via REST APIs for server-side integrations.
If you’re considering integrating an SDK into your platform, the LiveLike SDK is an optimal choice, and will allow your team to iterate quickly, on top of a reliable platform, all while benefiting from our continuous research and innovation. Your team will enjoy using the SDK because it empowers them to customize it, so that they can get the results they’re looking for without compromising their structure.
