Unity3d SDK - GetAchievements not available

It seems like it's possible to get achievement progresses from the Android SDK but why is it not exposed in Unity? It seems like an important thing to leave out.

Hi Samuel, Thanks for the reply. I've read the documentation. However Unity SDK only provides a way to "updateAchievementProgress" but no methods to read achievements. The difference between the two is that one allows you to update the achievement progress on the GameCircle server, and the other to "read" the achievement progress from the GameCircle server so that you can use it in the game (for example to display your own achievement UI). I've read the native SDK documentation as well and it appears that it's available there via "GetAchievements" which is not exposed in Unity. thanks, Tommy

Hi, Thanks for clarifying back on this issue. Using GeAchievements you can read the achievements, but this is not exposed in Unity. However we have forwarded this to concerned team. Thanks again.

Hi, We have received update from team and we suggest using JNI to access the AchievementsClient, but this may increase lots of developer effort. achievement list/retrieve/reset will all be made available. We will update in Mobile App Distribution portal once it is done. Stay tuned for the updates. Thank you.
