Particle Code, a breakthrough development in creating applications for mobile and connected devices, has launched Particle SDK Free Public Beta to the mobile app development community.
Officials with Particle said that the Particle platform allows developers to write complex applications and games once, then deploy both HTML5 and native apps to the entire smartphone and tablet ecosystem – including iPhone, iPad, Android (News - Alert), Windows Phone, BlackBerry and more - from one codebase.
The Particle platform is built on top of the Eclipse IDE and supports software development in widely adopted programming languages including Java, C# and ActionScript3.
“With mobile and tablets trending into the largest segment of the social games market, we are excited about our developers using the Particle SDK to quickly expand our platform reach,” said Marc Fernandez, EVP of Marc Ecko Entertainment, a publisher of premium branded video games on connected platforms and a 2011 Webby award honoree, in a statement.
“We are excited about the future of HTML5 and wanted to create a flexible environment that would allow mobile developers to harness the best of what both native and web applications have to offer,” said Galia Benartzi, CEO of Particle.
“We set out to provide a holistic solution that would enable developers to achieve the same cross-platform benefits that HTML5 promises tomorrow but with the power that truly native applications deliver today. And while other cross-platform tools limit support to scripting languages, Particle brings millions of Java, and other programmers back into the mobile app arena,” said Benartzi.
Particle Code was founded by mobile gaming veterans from Mytopia, a social games business acquired in 2010 by 888 Holdings.
Particle is the award-winning cross-platform SDK that automates the porting process, enabling developers to create native and HTML5 apps from a single codebase using modern object-oriented programming languages.
