Getting Started

Follow the instructions given below to get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine to integrate the Android SDK.


Step 1: Add the maven repository to your build file. Add it in your root build.gradle at the begining.

maven {
url ""

Step 2: Add the dependency to app build.gradle.
