06:07 EDTTWTRTwitter introduces Fabric modular mobile platform
Yesterday at Flight, Twitter announced Fabric, a modular mobile platform that makes it easy for developers to build great apps. Twitter comments, "The Fabric platform is made of three modular kits that address some of the most common and pervasive challenges that all app developers face: stability, distribution, revenue and identity. It combines the services of Crashlytics, MoPub, Twitter and others to help you build more stable apps, generate revenue through the world’s largest mobile ad exchange and enable you to tap into Twitter’s sign-in systems and rich streams of real-time content for greater distribution and simpler identity. And Fabric was built with ease of use in mind. Installation takes just minutes, and most features only require a few lines of code – so you spend less time managing SDKs and more time building the best experience for your users." Reference Link
