What is a Mobile SDK?

What is a Mobile SDK?

Using our mobile SDK provides a print function with facility.

Usually, developing a necessary print program is very complex and needs weeks of work. Our SDK allows developers to easily add a print function to their programs.

How to control Brother mobile/label printers and how to directly control these printers with commands are explained in the documentation in the SDK package. However the basic procedure such as how to program or design GUI programs for the host computer is not described. To use the mobile SDK, basic programming knowledge and experience are required.

Precautions for use

Our mobile printer developers information describes mobile application development tools and how to get them, including SDKs (software development kit) and command references. Target users are application developers who understand programming languages (C++, C#, VB, Java, Objective-C, etc.) and have development environments of these programs.

Note that development is difficult for general users other than application developers even if they have read details and have obtained these development tools.
