SAN JOSE, Calif. --(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Immersion Corp. (NASDAQ:IMMR), the leading developer and licensor of touch feedback technology, today announced TouchSense® SDK for Mobile Apps, a new haptic solution that unifies the functionality from the TouchSense® SDK for Mobile Games and TouchSense® SDK for Mobile Video into one easy-to-use SDK for Android app developers.

The combined cross-platform solution will enable developers to differentiate themselves among their competitors by delivering engaging and impactful mobile experiences for their users, which will keep those users coming back for more.

“A growing community of Android game and app developers have embraced haptics as a way to create exciting mobile content,” said Todd Whitaker, VP of Marketing from Immersion. “By consolidating our functionality into a single SDK, we can streamline the mobile app development process and reduce the amount of maintenance overhead while supplying the maximum benefit for our developer community.”

This new solution aims to address the pain points of Android developers in distributing high-quality haptic-enabled content to their end users. The new SDK offers a decreased footprint of 300K and flexible integration options with multiple APIs, including a Unity plug-in. Additionally, Immersion is providing 30 pre-designed effects that developers can add to their applications immediately, as well as a variety of sample applications and documentation to help them quickly integrate and transition from any of Immersion’s recent SDK solutions and get to market quickly.
