Microsoft has now launched the full version of its SDK for Microsoft Band For all platforms. With the help of this SDK  Developers can create Windows 10 apps using Android and iOS code.

A preview SDK had been available since February, but apps created using that could not access all the features and sensors of the Band.

Additional functionality to the SDK includes the ability to:

1. Build apps that support Windows.

2. Create your own custom layouts for pages on third-party tiles using icons, text, buttons, and barcodes for payment options.

3. Receive events and button-click callbacks from the Microsoft Band to your phone app. If you press a button on a page inside your tile, your app would know which button was pressed.

4. Connect to the Band from background tasks.

5. Tap into calorie subscription from the Microsoft Band.

The SDK allows Windows, Windows Phone, Android and iOS developers to create apps for Microsoft Band by taking advantage of all sensors in the wearable device. 

Until now, they have only had access to a slightly paired down SDK, but with this version they can build fully fledged apps that support Windows, create custom layouts, access the device from background tasks and get data from Microsoft’s calorie subscription service. 

At the same time as launching the full SDK, Microsoft has also made available sample code for developers to download
