Now that you’ve developed a SCiO Model, it’s time to build your first mobile app. This section explains how to create you own iOS app for SCiO using the SCiO Development Kit and the Mobile SDK, including code examples. 

This SDK enables you to create apps which interact with your SCiO Sensor and the Models you previously built and tested in SCiO Lab. Apps built with the API can sync with SCiO, calibrate, initiate sample material scans and retrieve the analysis from the SCiO Cloud.


The SCiO SDK is comprised of three elements.

  • SCiO Sensor + accessories
  • SCiO Lab environments (SCiO Lab and SCiO Lab Mobile)
  • SCiO Mobile SDK (this API)

App Development Workflow

This diagram shows the full life-cycle for developing an iOS app for your SCiO Sensor and provides step by step instructions for developing a SCiO app using the mobile SDK.
