The Pendo Mobile SDK is a codeless library that collects analytics retroactively across all versions of your app. The SDK also provides the ability to display in-app messages, tooltips and multi-step walkthrough guides built using Pendo's Visual Design Studio. The SDK starts collecting analytics as soon as it is integrated. The integration requires minimal effort with a few lines of code.

These measurements of the SDK are captured using Pendo’s testing applications and may differ among applications, depending on their screen complexity and user interaction.
* Size impact regarding the release builds, available through Google Play or App Store.
** Slight CPU impact may occur during app launch or UI-intensive operations.
The Pendo SDK network traffic consists of two parts:
Incoming traffic (during the session startup)
|A single guide with three steps
|A single guide with nine steps
|Up to 40KB
|Up to 64KB
|Up to 90KB
Network requests are executed in parallel, prioritizing guides with higher priority to be downloaded first and becoming available earlier during the initialization process of the session. For example, guides with an app launch trigger will be available immediately, while lower-priority guides may take a few additional seconds to be available during the session.
The analytics captured by the SDK include starting a session, the application state (foreground and background), screen changing, clicks, guide events, and manual track events. The size of each analytic event varies from 1KB to 6.5KB.
Network usage example
A session with a single guide including four steps, 6 session analytics, 42 page transitions, 65 feature clicks, 13 guide events and 3 track events, recorded ~120KB of data received and ~320KB of data transmitted.
