Notes about the SDK

Simulator Support

Our SDK cannot be used in the built in Android simulator due to lack of Bluetooth Low Energy support. Third party alternatives may work if they support the official BLE APIs.

Android Gear Support

At present we havn't added support for Android gear. Third party support is welcome, please add an issue in the bug tracker.

Full Source Code

At this stage we do not plan on releasing our full library source code.

Are there any restrictions on releasing my own application?

The SDK is currently and will always be free for you to build and release your own applications. Your welcome to charge money or release free applications using our SDK without restrictions.

If you create a great application, all we ask is that you provide a link for people to purchase their own RoboSapien and RoboRaptor so they can enjoy your product.

License

RoboSapien Blue RoboRaptor Blue Android SDK is available under the Apache License, Version 2.0 license. See the LICENSE.txt file for more info.

You are free to use our SDK in your own projects whether free or paid. There are no restrictions on releasing into Google Play or other stores. We do ask that you clearly differentiate your app from the official app so that users do not get confused.

Contributing

We happily accept any pull requests and monitor issues on GitHub regularly. Please feel free to give us your suggestions or enhancements. Please note that due to resource constraints we most likely cannot add new features to the RoboSapien robot or RoboRaptor robot itself, but we will certainly consider them for inclusion to future robot/versions.

Tell your friends, fork our project, buy our robot and share with us your own projects! These are the best kinds of positive feedback to us.
