App Code Overview

The RevTwoSample App is a simple app written in Java.  Once you have added your product keys, RevTwoSample will be all set to communicate with your account.

The goal of RevTwoSample is to demonstrate the functionality offered by the RevTwo In-App Support library.  Using this app will give you a platform to see the library in action and easily find examples of how to use various features.

For simplicity, all the views for the app have been added into app > res > layout.

The tutorials in this folder cover the RevTwo features that will require some work by the app developer.  All other functionality, such as screen sharing, is provided with no additional work by the developer.  The following sections will cover these tutorials in greater detail.
