Facebook is working hard to improve experiences on Android devices, as the company recently released an update to its Android Software Development Kit (SDK). This update will bring the native Share Dialog to Android, as well as the Object Application Programming Interface.
Here’s what’s in the latest update, courtesy of Facebook:
- Share Dialog for Android offers a lightweight and consistent way to enable sharing, without needing to login to Facebook first. With one line of code, developers can enable people to skip three extra steps and immediately share to Facebook.
- Object API that makes it easier to integrate Open Graph into Android apps. Developers can now directly create Open Graph objects, and no longer need to host webpages with Open Graph tags.
- Beta launch of the ability to publish and measure app events for Android apps. Developers can now measure the aggregate number of times a predefined action was taken within an app, to help developers understand the engagement and ROI coming from mobile adds on Facebook.
- Redesigned Login UI that looks better, and converts at a higher rate.
