    Partnering with HMS: A Guide for App Developers is the first book to introduce readers to the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) ecosystem. It gives developers a fundamental understanding of the ecosystem and how to leverage kit and tool capabilities to make their apps better.

    This book is also a quick start guide for kit integration and practical environment setup, detailing the functions and principles behind each kit. By demonstrating how to integrate kits, the authors teach these kits by action: Account Kit, IAP, Push Kit, Location Kit, Map Kit, Site Kit, Safety Detect, and FIDO.

    Readers are fully introduced to how they can use HMS open capabilities to develop quality apps, acquire users, and monetize their hard work. In addition, the ecosystem background – the business model and value chain that underpin the entire ecosystem as well as its privacy compliance framework – is crucial to operations and illustrated in this book.
