U.S. Cellular® Developer Program allows developers to register for access to popular Network and Payment APIs and use these to build applications or extensions to existing apps that include powerful mobile communications and monetization features. Any application or service, whether it runs in the web, on an enterprise server, in a SaaS cloud, on the desktop, or on the mobile device, can be enriched with communications, context and commercialization capabilities from U.S. Cellular®’s mobile network.
For example, a “Find my Friends” feature could be embedded into a Social Networking site, or send and receive SMS or MMS functionality can be added to any application. U.S. Cellular®’s Payment API allows developers to charge for their apps via the end-user’s U.S. Cellular® phone bill, with support for a variety of charging models such as one-time payments and subscriptions.
U.S. Cellular® Developer Portal includes a Forum for developer community collaboration, developer support, API code samples, guides on how to use the APIs, and access to both sandbox and (limited) live versions of the APIs for prototyping and testing.
U.S. Cellular rewards its customers with unmatched benefits and industry-leading innovations designed to elevate the customer experience. The Chicago-based carrier has a strong line-up of cutting-edge devices that are all backed by its high-speed network that has the highest call quality of any national carrier.
