Getting Started

Getting Started with iOS



Verizon Personal Cloud Storage SDK for iOS simplifies the task of any third party developer who is consuming Verizon Personal Cloud Storage APIs. It exposes a set of public methods, which can be used by third party developers to access various Verizon Personal Cloud Storage APIs.

iOS SDK also 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).

Before You Begin

Before you can start coding, you will need to:

  1. Obtain Key, Secret, and Callback URL.
  2. Make sure you have the right tools.
  3. Install and set up Verizon Personal Cloud Storage SDK for iOS.

Key, Secret, and Callback URL are established during registration. If you have not yet registered, follow the steps on the Getting Credentials to Use the Personal Cloud Storage APIs page in the API Developer Guide to register.
