What is SweetBlue?

As Android developers, our App team knows how difficult it can be supporting the plethora of phones and tablets in the market. SweetBlue serves as the friendly middleman between your code and the chaos, offering a simple API that hides the details and lets you focus on what's most important to you: your app.

Save Development Time

Sit back and let SweetBlue handle the nitty gritty issues of Bluetooth Smart development for Android and save months of development time.

Normalize Devices

Write code for one smart device and have the confidence that it will work on any other, saving you thousands in hardware and testing costs.

Eliminate Bugs

Know what's going on under the hood at all times with comprehensive analytics, diagnostics, logging and debugging facilities.


Core Features

  1. An API designed from the ground-up to be simple, predictable and robust.
  2. Transparent fallback, retry and correction mechanisms for a multitude of failure conditions, both transient and permanent.
  3. High-level constructs like transactions, state tracking and polling that make common use cases a breeze to implement.
  4. Open-source codebase, full-coverage API documentation, sample projects and support.
See All
