Over the last few months, we’ve published a number of Extension Development Kit (EDK) blog posts and tutorials to help you develop extensions for both the Timescape social network app and the Music player in our Xperia™ smartphones. Now we’ve got another update for you – EDK 2.0 – and it includes an updated Timescape™ API that enables you to incorporate Facebook™-like actions (such as “liking” or commenting) for the users of the external apps you create for Timescape™. We’ve also included an emulator for Smart Extras for your convenience. Read on for more details and to download EDK 2.0.
Did you miss the release of the LiveKey SDK earlier this summer? No worries, it’s still around, and now we’ve updated it with an emulator. The LiveKey™ functionality was first introduced in the new LiveSound™ hi-fi headset, and using it gives you direct access to phone functions or applications with the click of a button. Maybe you want a simple speed dial to your mom, or the weather report to be read by text to voice? The only your limit is your imagination!
We met with Magnus Helgstrand from Sony Ericsson Smart Extras™ to find out more about LiveKey™ app extensions.
