Microsoft announces new SDKs for Android and iOS, teams up with IFTTT, others

Microsoft today announced a wealth of new functionality for its Office 365 suite that will enable developers to add a number of new features to Android and iOS applications.

The gist is that there are now a number of new APIs for email, files, contacts and calendars, allowing developers to more easily tap those resources in their applications. And to that end, Microsoft also is making available new SDKs so that Android and iOS developers can more easily code-in those new features in their favorite IDE.

Of immediate interest is IFTTT, which will fire up an Office 365 channel in the coming weeks, and Microsoft will have a number of other partners coming on line as well.

Developers can get started with the new APIs at Microsoft's Office Dev Center.
