announced the launch of its new PhoneGap Mobile App XDK (X-platform Development
Kit) that supports the open source PhoneGap mobile app development framework,
recently recommended by Facebook as the preferred way to create mobile apps for
the Facebook Platform.
appMobi’s PhoneGap XDK is the
only integrated development environment (IDE) that fully integrates the open
source PhoneGap platform, offering a suite of desktop development tools for
creating mobile, HTML5 and PhoneGap based apps.
PhoneGap XDK includes desktop debugging of mobile apps, emulation of mobile
devices, hardware emulation of GPS, camera, contacts, and accelerometer inputs,
even remote testing anywhere in the world using a free test container” app.
has developed into a wonderful set of APIs, but a matching IDE has really been
missing. We’ve brought the PhoneGap community a free development suite that
unleashes the capabilities of the PhoneGap APIs so that developers can create
amazing apps,” said appMobi CTO, Sam Abadir.
the PhoneGap XDK, PhoneGap developers can create cross platform mobile apps
without the need to own and set up complex native tool chains such as XCode for
iOS or the Android SDK. This tool dramatically reduces the code-debug cycle
time for PhoneGap programmers,” Abadir added.
PhoneGap XDK integrates with Adobe DreamWeaver 5.5, NotePad++ or any other
popular programming editor, so there’s no learning curve to scale before being
productive. appMobi provides cloud-based services to complete HTML5 as a mobile
platform solution, making it a valid mobile platform on par with iOS and
PhoneGap XDK also allows developers to easily add features that do not exist in
PhoneGap but are considered essential to commercial apps, such as in-app
payments, push messaging, user analytics and live app updates.
