The company has an improved Mobile SDK, plus data management and analytics services.

During its Amazon Web Services 2014 Summit, AWS launched a trio of mobile development offerings. First, it unveiled a new and improved Mobile SDK that aims to make it easy for mobile developers to make use of Amazon's cloud computing services. It comes in two versions: iOS and Android/Fire.

In addition, the company rolled out a service it calls Cognito. It handles storage and management of user ids and other data, and it integrates with Amazon, Facebook and Google authentication services.

Third, Amazon debuted a Mobile Analytics service. "It generates reports on active users, sessions, retention, in-application revenue, and custom events," explained the company, which added that Mobile Analytics "can collect and process billions of events per day from millions of users."
