Business-to-business software-as-a-service platform appScatter Group confirmed the launch of the appScatter Android Software Developer Kit (SDK) on Friday, with it now available to 25 million software developers on computer code hosting service GitHub.

The AIM-traded firm said the SDK allowed developers to “conveniently integrate” in-app billing to multiple Android app stores worldwide, including Amazon, Bemobi, Samsung and the Google Play Store.

It said the SDK used each store's native in-app billing service, or a third-party carrier billing service for app stores without in-app billing, enabling developers to monetise their apps across a wider market, including the 50 app stores appScatter supports.

The SDK could be integrated into Android apps that featured in-app billing - a service letting developers sell virtual content from within their applications.

Virtual content could include game levels, virtual money, premium services and more.

In-app billing could include consumable, non-consumable and subscription revenues, which appScatter said further increased the potential to improve app revenues.

The firm said it intended to release a number of open source projects over the coming months, including extensions to the appScatter SDK.

“With the release of the SDK, we are confident that as we help developers monetise their apps across more stores, we help them make more revenue and, in turn, the developer community sees the massive benefit of using appScatter to distribute and manage their apps,” said appScatter founder and CEO Philip Marcella.
