We told you in our last post about the big news regarding Sprint Mobile Wallet that was announced at the 10th annual Sprint Open Developer Conference October 26-28. That was far from the only news to come out of the energized conference.
Also making news was Sprint’s announcement of new partners for Sprint ID, following up to the Sprint ID announcement itself earlier in the month. What Sprint ID does is allow users to personalize their Android device experience by selecting ID packs that feature convenient bundles of apps, widgets, screen savers, and more.
At the ODC, developers saw how Sprint ID offers opportunities for them to create apps for the ID packs, or to create their own entire packs, whether they are consumer-focused or enterprise-focused with an eye on improving the productivity of mobile workforces.
Newest additions to the list of companies on board with Sprint ID and the creation of ID packs include enterprise partner Deluxe and consumer partner AOL, along with UPS, Canvas, IHG, and BodyMedia.
With Sprint ID, up to five ID packs, plus the basic My ID Android experience can be added instantly, giving users the opportunity to move seamlessly between experiences.
Sprint emphasized to developers at the ODC that Sprint ID is meant to welcome more wireless users into the smartphone world and make it easier for them to navigate the universe of personal and business apps.
We’ll wrap up the rest of the ODC news in the next post.
