London, UK, 1st August 2012 – Marmalade, provider of the world’s most powerful cross-platform SDK for native mobile apps, today announced a licensing deal with EON Reality, the world leaders in easy-to-use software tools for creating interactive, 3D rich media and application services.
EON Reality will use the Marmalade SDK to bring their suite of interactive 3D tools to tablet and other mobile devices, including iOS, Android and beyond. By choosing Marmalade, EON Reality can focus on creating rich 3D mobile applications for their clients, without worrying about cross-platform complexities and future device compatibility.
Tim Closs, CTO Marmalade, commented: “We’re excited that EON Reality has decided to take its cross-platform strategy to the next level with Marmalade. EON Reality has long been a market leader in interactive 3D development, and has played a pivotal role in imbuing 3D technology with practical, real-world applications.
