You can also start with one of our many sample apps on our GitHub channel Opens new site.

Once you are ready to move on to your own app, you'll need to get and manage your AppKey Opens new site, which is required to integrate the SDK from your developer account.

The AppKey is generated once and has no expiration.

Note: Internet connectivity is NOT required for using CaptureSDK.

For Apple Enterprise: This step can be skipped.

For an application that will be put on the Apple App Store: Submit to Socket for allowed listing in Apple's MFi program before submitting your app to the App Store.

Since our CaptureSDK allows using external devices through External Accessory Framework, Apple requires the apps to get MFi approval first before publishing. This process is free and is handled by Socket Mobile's developer support team. When you are ready, simply go to the app in your Socket Mobile developer account, click to see the details. For iOS apps, you will have the option to submit for MFi.

If you encounter any issues or questions during the process, you can count on our Developer Support Opens new site team.
