The BuzzBox SDK enables you to easily add a scheduler to your App. With few lines of code you can add a background task and app-side notifications. Besides, BuzzBox SDK also include free realtime analytics, so you can monitor in real time how many user are installing and using your App. Notifications and Analytics are tighly integrated, but you can use only want you need.

Real Time Analytics for Android


The developer needs to do very little work to provide value to the user and also increase retention, visits/user and perceived value of the product. The app-side notifications do not require any server side code, so the implementation costs are minimal. The SDK is modularized, so it can be customized by the developer. We have added notifications to over many apps in the Android Marketplace, catch up to what everyone is doing.

Start with the Hello World example to integrate the SDK in your App.
