SDK for iOS Sample App

Building an Amazon Drive file explorer


The Amazon Drive sample app is a simple file explorer. The app enables a user to sign in and view the contents of their Amazon Drive starting from the root folder. The user is able to push into subfolders and pop back out. The contents of a folder are loaded automatically, paginated, and can also be pulled to refresh and sorted by either name or date. The user is able to preview files of various types and share the files using a document interaction controller. The user is also able to swipe to delete folders and files.
