Frequently Asked Questions

How do you know which SDKs are installed in apps and games?

We download and scan every free iOS and Android app when it's released or updated, to get a list of all SDKs it has installed. We use those to determine which SDK is used by most apps.

Just how accurate is the SDK analysis process?

Very accurate! Our SDK detection process uses a combination of automatic scanning and human validation which eliminates all false positives.

Our SDK Intelligence supports 500+ of the most popular commercial and open source SDKs, as well as native APIs built into iOS and Android.
