If you currently build a mobile app for iOS or Android, and you want to integrate Analytics, Target, Audience Manager, Campaign, you have the choice: you can use the good old Mobile Services SDK and Campaign SDKs, or you can use the new Adobe Experience Platform Mobile SDK, which is driven from the Launch user … Continue reading Mobile SDKs – which one?
Imagine I would design and build footballs. I mean footballs as in "football", not "American Football". This distinction is pretty much where my knowledge of and experience with football ends. I played 6-a-side in the UK for 10 years and scored exactly 10 goals in that time. I am absolutely rubbish. I think I managed … Continue reading Responsibility – best served in layers

If you have looked at the documentation, you will likely have come across the following illustration regarding Extension flow. The flow diagram describes how the different parts of Launch and your Extension work together. Flow … Continue reading Launch – Make an Extension – Principles
I built an Extension some time ago that enables someone to set contextData for Analytics directly in the Launch UI. You can see the source code for that Extension on github, of course, but today, I want to write about some of the stuff that went into the Extension. This is also, in a way, … Continue reading Extensions and Adobe Analytics – get-tracker and augment-tracker
