Developing apps for Xperia devices is easy. Most Sony Xperia devices are Android-based, which means apps can be created for them using the Android SDK. On top of that, a number of unique APIs, including the Camera Add-on API, the IR Remote API and the Small Apps API, are available for a number of Xperia devices. With these APIs, you can create unique and innovative use cases that makes your app stand out from most other apps.

You can develop for the Camera Add-on API, Small App API or IR Remote API using the Sony Add-on SDK, which is an add-on for the standard Android SDK. The Sony Add-on SDK comes with code examples, an emulator, tutorials and API references to make your unique app development for Xperia devices straightforward.

For more information about the Camera Add-on API, Small App API or IR Remote API, check out the Camera Add-on API, IR Remote API and Small App API pages. For technical details about how to use and develop using these APIs, check out the Sony Add-on SDK documentation kit.
