Create Application

We will start by creating an application on Kii Cloud. This is equivalent to creating the "application" region in the Application Features section (denoted in light blue).

We will create an application on the developer portal.

  1. Log in to the developer portal (https://developer.kii.com). Click "SIGN UP" to create your account if you don't have one.

  2. Click the "Create App" button.

  3. Type in the followings:

    • Application Name: Hello Kii
    • Server Location: United States (or the place nearest to the region where the end users reside)
    • Platform: Android (also select iOS and JavaScript if you are going to try their tutorials later)

    Click the "Create Your App" button when done.

  4. The SDK download screen will show up.

    Click "Next" for now. Hello Kii project is configured to download the SDK automatically from the Maven repository.

  5. The "Sample Apps and Code" screen will show up.

    Click and download HelloKii-Android.zip. If you've selected platforms other than Android, download their ZIP files as well.

    Scroll down and click "Finish" when done.

Note: Follow these steps to download Hello Kii after creating an application.

  1. Click the application on the application list page in the developer portal to open the Dashboard page.

  2. Click "Download" on the upper side of the page and scroll down the page.

  3. Click HelloKii-Android.zip to download it.


What's next?

We will build the sample code and test the application.

Go to Build and Test.
