A detailed primer on building cross platform mobile applications

Posted by

I finally had a few hours today morning to wrap up my study on comparison of mobile application platforms that allow developing cross-device applications easily using familiar technologies. Here is a quick braindump of all the links and resources I went through -

Rhomobile

Pyxis Mobile

  • http://pyxismobile.com/platform/technical-overview/
  • Build one configuration and deploy to BlackBerry, iPhone, and Windows Mobile all at the same time
  • Skinning, scripting, localized languages, complex workflow management, push, hotkeys, mapping & LBS, camera support, signature capture, GUI calendar, disambiguation, hotkeys, and much more

It appears that the rho has changed their licensing fee. It used to be about 5000$ upfront and a percentage of the app sales. Have you been able to verify the 500$ number?

@arjun: check http://rhomobile.com/products/rhodes/ at the bottom. what you are talking about is possible their RhoSync service which is not required for writing apps

Recently I saw demo of Mitr @MoMoDelhi event from SpiceLabs. I really liked it.. They’ve simulators of around 270 [They claim it!!!] on which developers can test before release… It’s really great work by an Indian team, if it’s upto what they claim… :-)

I hope my comments r in-line with your post.
