*Fabric is a toolset that addresses some of the most common iOS development challenges: stability, analytics, distribution, revenue, and identity. It was built with ease of use in mind; installation takes just minutes, and most features only require a few lines of code - so you spend less time managing SDKs and more time building the best experience for your users.
**Digits is an SDK offered via Fabric that provides an authentication mechanism based on users' phone numbers. Available in 216 countries, Digits allows iOS developers to easily penetrate developing markets and increase their apps' conversion rates.
