The fact that different developers prefer different tools is perhaps a painfully obvious point, but it’s true. And now, thanks to a new development kit from appMobi, it looks like developers will be able to stick to their preferences while still being free to choose between creating apps for the iPad, iPhone, and Android devices.
The appMobi Cross Platform Development Kit (or XDK) is in fact supposed to let developers work with any tool that can edit Web pages, meaning DreamWeaver, Eclipse, and Virtual Studio are all on the figurative table.
What’s more, developers can use either a PC or a Mac to do their work.
Then here’s a list of some other advantages, as explained in an official press release: “The appMobi XDK provides a bridge between standard WebKit browser controls and native device functionality and is infinitely extensible to add support for any device-specific hardware, or third-party software API. The XDK’s leverage of the cloud further enables rapid prototyping because apps under development can be instantly shared with clients and reviewers – either in the client’s XDK emulator or on the appMobi preview container installed on mobile devices.”
