SAN FRANCISCO – MobilityWire® – October 24, 2011
HTML5 development powerhouse appMobi (www.appmobi.com) today announced that its integrated HTML5 mobile app development tool, the appMobi XDK, has been selected by Mashery as the company’s initial featured “Developer Power Tool.” Mashery (www.Mashery.com) is the world’s leading API management and strategy services company, helping more than 100 top brands connect with customers and partners across devices through application programming interfaces (APIs). This relationship allows mobile app developers programming in HTML5 to quickly and easily extend the reach and depth of their apps by connecting them to any of Mashery’s hundreds of managed APIs, including WeatherBug, Quova, Klout, Rotten Tomatoes, and Qwerly.
“The best mobile apps deliver information and content to the user when and where they need it, and Mashery makes it easy to add the power of hundreds of data and content suppliers to your app,” said Dave Kennedy, appMobi’s CEO. “By combining appMobi’s tools and cloud services with Mashery’s managed APIs, we’ve created a very compelling environment for HTML5 mobile app developers. The combination of the appMobi XDK and Mashery’s library of APIs gives developers all the tools needed to build, test, and monetize incredible mobile apps, along with the integrated content and services that drive the ultimate user engagement.”
The appMobi XDK provides a world-class IDE, with simulated mobile devices, great debugging and cross platform build tools. Registered Mashery users can get the appMobi XDK free by visiting the Mashery power tools page (www.developer.mashery.com/power_tools) or by visiting appMobi at http://www.appmobi.com/mashery . Full documentation, quick start educational videos and sample mobile apps that illustrate the use of Mashery APIs are included. Mobile apps created with Mashery and the appMobi XDK can be built for iOS and Android native app stores, or deployed as Web apps.
appMobi provides cloud-based services including push messaging, in-app payments, user authentication and analytics, filling in features that are missing in HTML5, allowing it to truly compete as a valid mobile platform on par with iOS and Android. The XDK runs on Mac, PC and Linux platforms. There is no charge for the appMobi XDK, and it is available today at www.appmobi.com/mashery.
