Introduction

Verizon Personal Cloud Storage SDK for Android allows you to develop apps for Android platform which can access Verizon Personal Cloud Storage user content (subject to the user’s prior approval). It provides authentication and authorization for the apps. If the user has Cloud Client installed on his or her Verizon Wireless issued 4G LTE mobile device and the app is using the SDK, the app will use Verizon’s Cloud Authentication silent sign-on (the user will not have to log on again).

NOTE: Content uploaded through the Verizon Cloud website or the Verizon Cloud PC Desktop App is not yet available through the APIs.
