Have you ever wanted to make a multiplayer app, but were put off by a lack of local Wi-Fi session sharing knowledge?
Or maybe you already have an amazing dungeon crawler or virtual jam session and want to open it up to co-op play? We know sharing things makes them more fun, so why not join us on Wednesday the 18th of September, where we'll show you how you can quickly put content sharing in your apps with Samsung Chord.
Samsung Chord: Multiplayer Harmony for your games
The Chord SDK quickly connects nearby devices so you can create shared, real-time experiences like collaborative interaction, multi-player games and media sharing. Without using the cloud or a server, it instantly supports sharing 1-to-1, 1-to-many or many-to-many.
Devices running Chord-based applications discover each other using a UDP broadcast based discovery, and then use a TCP-based protocol stack to create a reliable, peer-to-peer local communication network. This network can be used to share data, including text, binary messages and files, with selected members of the network.
Chord SDK helps you create a group with multi-devices in real-time, automatically, requiring no manual processing of devices which join or leave the group.
For a sample of what a utility could do with Chord, please check out the demo video of Spl.it, who recently won the Samsung America PayPal Hackathon. Or, if your heart is set on a game, then have a look at this Air Hockey demo – the possibilities are almost endless!
