MasterCard has introduced a new user interface SDK for Android and BlackBerry developers as it continues to promote mass adoption for mobile commerce apps supporting its platform.
The Mobile MasterCard PayPass User Interface Software Development Kit provides a standardized user interface that allows developers to submit applications that have been pre-approved.
Targeted towards issuers, mobile network operators and third party developers, the UI SDK is supposed to simpify and speed up the delivery process of mobile payment apps to consumers without having to become experts in this field.
This is the first SDK available by MasterCard for this purpose. MasterCard also has an Open API program for developers to tap into the credit card company's various services, such as MoneySend and PayPass.
The global credit card business asserts that one of the motivations behind producing this SDK is "to increase the simplicity of the mobile payments ecosystem without sacrificing safety."
