Getting Started with the Amazon Fling SDK

Summary

The Amazon Fling SDK allows developers to enable second screen functionality within their apps. It is now possible to send media and web content from a mobile device to an Amazon Fire TV.

Functionality provided by the Amazon Fling SDK includes the ability to discover Fire TV devices from a controller app on a mobile device, control the playback of content sent from a controller app, and customize the user experience of a Fire TV player app. Fling controllers can be built into applications on Fire OS, Android, and iOS.

Developers can create a custom player application to receive content from the controller, or simply use the built-in media receiver included on Fire TV. More details on getting started with the Amazon Fling SDK can be found here:
