The Adobe Experience Platform Mobile SDK helps power Adobe’s Experience Cloud solutions and services in your mobile apps. It is available for Android™, iOS, and various cross-platform development frameworks. Configuration is handled through Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection.

IMPORTANT

An Adobe Analytics extension is also available in Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection. If you install this extension, you do not take advantage of XDM or the Edge Network.
