Star Micronics Introduces New iOS SDK Updates for All Star Printers With Swift Support

SOMERSET, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 11, 2016) - Always leading -- always innovating, Star Micronics is supporting the latest advances in technology by introducing the new StarPRNT SDK V 5.0, a major update to its existing SDKs. The new StarPRNT SDK for iOS was developed to speed up the integration of any Star product by making the process as seamless as possible.

This new StarPRNT SDK version for iOS allows users to utilize new APIs to generate proof of transaction, reports, and additional functions that are required in retail, restaurant, and banking environments, making the SDK easier for developers to work with than ever before. Coming soon, Android™ users will also be able to benefit from the StarPRNT SDK to use Star Micronics printers with any Android™ device.

For the first time, Star Micronics is providing support for Swift programming language for iOS with StarPRNT SDK; this will broaden the choice for developers to use whichever language they prefer for iOS applications. The new StarPRNT SDK features UTF8 Unicode support, multi-language documents, human readable APIs, and document scaling. In addition, StarPRNT SDK now provides support for digital receipt API capability with Star Micronics' AllReceipts™, digital receipt solution.

The StarPRNT SDK supports all popular Star product categories in one SDK including thermal receipt printers, kitchen printers, portable printers, mPOP™, kiosk printers, and AllReceipts™, making it the most complete SDK product support on the market. Once integrated, customers can easily use any product from Star Micronics' constantly growing line of POS offerings.
