Software creator Janrain is bringing its social login SDK to Android phones today.

Janrain’s plug and play technology allows an app developer’s visitors to sign-in to the app with their existing accounts on Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo, LinkedIn or other networks and then publish their comments, purchases, reviews or other activities from the app to multiple social networks.

Features of the Janrain Engage for Android SDK include social Login for 20-plus identity providers and social networks, social sharing to 5 networks, a built-in preview feature that displays how a social post would appear on the social network; and more. Janrain Engage will also remember an app user’s preferred network on return visits and will provide a single-click return experience.

Janrain Engage was extended to the iPhone last year, and the iPad earlier this year. Future releases will include email and SMS sharing as well as a tablet optimized version, says the company.
