LG Electronics, the maker of LG G2 and Nexus 5 smartphones, is expanding its LG Android Developers’ Program with a new device loaner program that launched Monday.
The loaner program was previewed at last week’s LG Android Developers’ VIP event in San Francisco, where a new software development kit (SDK), the LG QRemote SDK, was introduced.
The developers who attended the LG Android Developers’ Workshop had the opportunity to experience the new LG G2 phone, check out the LG QRemote SDK and learn more about the overall LG Android Developers’ Program, said the company.
The new LG Device Loaner Program for Android developers consists of a three-step process: registration on the LG Device Loaner Program website (http://goo.gl/Xa7A3L), completion of a brief order form designating the desired LG device, and return shipping at the conclusion of the 30-day loan period.
The LG device loaner program is provided free of charge to the developer community, with the exception of return shipping costs that are covered by the developer.
Supporting the new LG G2 “superphone” and other LG Android devices, the new LG QRemote SDK (http://developer.lge.com) contains the library, documentation and sample codes that enable developers to create their QuickRemote apps to control multiple electronic devices such as TVs, cable set-top-boxes and audio systems, and even air conditioners.
This SDK provides developers with open apps necessary to develop IR (infrared) remote sensor-enabled applications.
Developers can create the customized IR remote control apps for certain groups of people such as children or seniors and also add a macro button that enables both TV and cable set-top-box to power on with just one click.
