HERE SDK for iOS (Starter Edition)

SDK for iOS Developer's Guide

Authenticating Applications

Developers using HERE SDK with their app are required to register for a set of HERE credentials and to specify these credentials (App_Id and App_Code) in their application. Failure to do so results in blocked access to certain features and degradation in the quality of other services.

To obtain these credentials, visit the developer portal at and register for a license. Once your project is created, you can generate these credentials on your Project Details page. If you already have a plan, you can also retrieve these credentials from your Project Details page.

Note: Credentials are unique to your application. Do not reuse credentials across multiple applications.

Adding Credentials

Ensure that you have provided the app_id and app_code before using HERE SDK. For example, set them in your app delegate:
- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application
didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions
  [NMAApplicationContext setAppId:@"{YOUR_APP_ID}" appCode:@"{YOUR_APP_CODE}"];

  return YES;
