Zebra’s Multiplatform SDK
Create new applications to print from various mobile platforms — such as Apple® iPhone®,
iPad™ and iPod touch® mobile digital devices, Android™-based systems, BlackBerry® smartphone
models, or Windows Mobile® and Windows CE® terminals and devices to Zebra® mobile or
stationary thermal printers with Zebra’s ZebraLink™ Multiplatform Software Development Kit
(SDK). The SDK includes source code samples, documentation and demonstration modules
that make creating custom applications — with embedded support for Zebra printers —
clear-cut and straightforward.
Explore the Possibilities
The SDK opens your door to exciting new
opportunities for supporting on-demand
printing. For your customers, it means they
may no longer need to carry multiple devices
to enable printing.
To start the conversation, download our
ZebraLink Smartphone Utility to your Apple
mobile digital device, Android-based system,
BlackBerry smartphone, or Windows Mobile
or Windows CE device to demonstrate printing
simulated asset tag, photo ID badge or
e-citations to a Zebra printer. Once customers
see how easily they can get up and running,
it’s time to explore their application ideas.
Printing Applications — Imagination
to Creation
Use the ZebraLink Multiplatform SDK to
create different applications to support
your customers’ varied printing needs. The
following ideas are only the tip of the iceberg:
• Field service / sales / inspection labels
and receipts
• Direct store delivery documentation
• Retail mobile point-of-sale receipts for line
busting; price lookup and shelf labeling;
mobile online coupon printing
• Healthcare specimen labeling
