We recently released an update to the Amazon Mobile App SDK that includes improvements to GameCircle and some related components on both Android and iOS. It updates GameCircle’s dependency on the latest version of Amazon Insights, corrects a few bugs, and expands API coverage of the Unity3D plug-in. For all of these reasons, we recommend migrating to the latest SDK when convenient.

Both GameCircle and its Unity3D plug-in now take advantage of the latest version of Insights, part of Amazon’s Analytics service and the piece responsible for generating Achievements Reports. Insights SDK on iOS removed a dependency on CoreTelephony.framework, while the Android version corrected an issue specific to certain device Locales and improved support for other IAP frameworks. In addition, session timeouts now behave more consistently across platforms.

GameCircle initialization has also been optimized on both iOS and Android, and GameCircle now ensures that its Javascript components are updated when migrating to a new version of the SDK. The Unity3D plug-in supports the latest Whispersync for Games syncable type, DeveloperString, which should make it easier to store arbitrary, non-mergeable game data from your Unity3D game. The plug-in also exposes the ability to show the GameCircle sign-in page.

Check out these latest changes to the SDK, and watch this space or future updates. We’re always working to improve performance, usability, and reliability of our services for mobile apps and games.
