summary.jpgBack in March, we unveiled several new developer tools, including the iOS mobile SDK. That was just the beginning and we promised there would be more innovations coming soon.

Today we're announcing that the new Android SDK will be available on Wednesday. The new Android SDK is a native mobile payments solution that integrates simply and seamlessly into your Android apps, and removes payment friction so developers can focus on creating amazing experiences. The PayPal Android SDK is quick to integrate and easy to use, providing everything a developer needs to accept both PayPal and credit card payments.


The latest SDK builds on our belief that developers need the freedom to innovate for customers, and not worry about the complexities with payments. Consumers never leave the developer's app experience to pay and they have more choice in the way they want to pay - simply click a PayPal button or scan a credit or debit card using our technology. And, we do it securely so that developers can significantly reduce their fraud prevention or PCI compliance responsibilities.

Developers also get a payments solution that scales with them as they grow. PayPal connects more than 128 million account holders across more than 50 financial networks in 190 markets and in 25 currencies around the globe.

For more documentation and resources for integrating payments into your Android apps, go to the new PayPal developer site. The PayPal SDK for Android supports versions 2.2 and above, and will be available for U.S. developers on May 15.
