Amazon popularly is known for its online shopping portal and now the most popular cloud service provider announces new AWS(Amazon Web Service) SDK for mobile development.To make  it easier for developers to build AWS applications on mobile devices.

SDKs for AWS Development on devices that run the Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS operating systems (iPhones, iPads, and the iPod Touch).

The AWS SDK Android and the AWS SDK for iOS provide developers with access to storage (Amazon S3), database (Amazon SimpleDB), and messaging facilities (Amazon SQS and Amazon SNS). Both SDKs are lean and mean to allow you to make the most of the limited memory found on a mobile device. The libraries take care of a number of low-level concerns such as authentication, retrying of requests, and error handling.

Both of the SDKs include libraries, full documentation and some sample code. Both of the libraries are available in source form on GitHub (iOS and Android) and we will be more than happy to accept external contributions.
