Marmalade unleashes native power to HTML5 developers - Marmalade 6.0 release heralds a brand new approach to Hybrid apps
Marmalade, the world’s most powerful cross-platform SDK for native mobile apps, today throws open the doors to HTML5 and PhoneGap developers with the launch of Marmalade 6.0.
Established as a “power tool” for native apps and games, Marmalade has helped to deliver some of the richest, most complex and most successful apps simultaneously to iOS, Android, BlackBerry and a host of other mobile and Smart TV platforms. With this latest release, Marmalade unlocks and makes all of that native power available to web developers, creating for the first time the opportunity to exploit the dual strengths of HTML5 and cross-platform native code.
“We believe hybrid apps combining web and native technologies are the future, but not as they’ve been known up to this point” says Tim Closs, CTO at Marmalade. “With Marmalade 6.0, we’re starting to redefine what hybrid apps can achieve with native API breadth and power. Marmalade has always been about open standards, so HTML5 and PhoneGap are natural choices for us. But with our unparalleled experience of cross-platform native apps, and our patented single-binary architecture, we’re creating for web developers a brand new opportunity – use existing HTML5 technologies and frameworks, but access all the power of cross-platform native code.”
In keeping with Marmalade’s tradition of supporting the latest devices released in the market, Marmalade 6.0 also supports the new iPad Retina display.
