Marmalade gets sticky with HTML5


Marmalade, the cross platform SDK for native mobile apps, has opened the doors to HTML5 and PhoneGap developers with the launch of Marmalade 6.0. Established as a 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 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,' said 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 to use existing HTML5 technologies and frameworks, but access all the power of cross platform native code.' With Marmalade 6.0, developers can create mobile apps in HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript, and deploy them simultaneously as native apps to iOS and Android, without moving between platform SDKs, and without switching between Windows and Mac. For example, Windows developers can create, test, debug and deploy iOS apps locally and entirely from a Windows PC environment. Developers can preview their mobile apps within a lightning-fast desktop device simulator, fully integrated with the Chrome JavaScript debugger and Web Inspector tools. 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.
