HTC is gearing up to launch a series of developer tools, as the firm aims to build an ecosystem based around its critically acclaimed Sense interface.
HTCdev.com is scheduled to launch this summer, and will feature a resource library of tutorials, documentation and support.
Central to the release will be the HTC OpenSense SDK, which will allow Android developers to create apps that "deeply integrate" with the Sense 3.0 interface.
The SDK will feature APIs and code allowing developers to make use of the 3D display and the HTC Flyer's tablet pen. The SDK will be updated regularly based on input from the developer community, the firm explained.
Users can register their interest on the site, and will be notified when the HTC OpenSense SDK is ready to download.
"HTC is a company of engineers excited about the possibilities of the mobile space with the goal of fostering choice through innovation," said Peter Chou, chief executive of HTC.
"We believe in openness and the power of imagination to create that innovation, and are excited that HTCdev will extend new tools to mobile developers, helping them create the next wave of mobile experiences."
HTC appears to be very serious about attracting developers to its devices, as this is the second big announcement in the space in a week.
Chou said last Friday that HTC will no longer lock the bootloader on its devices, making it easier for owners to customise their handsets.
This will mean that HTC users will be able to load an alternative operating system or specific features if they wish.
"There has been overwhelming customer feedback that people want access to open bootloaders on HTC phones. I want you to know that we've listened," Chou said on the HTC Facebook page.
