Bitstream Launches Bolt SDK

Bitstream has released its Bolt SDK, a suite of tools that allows mobile app developers to build feature rich Java (Java ME) applications that work on feature phones and smartphones.

The Bolt SDK supports Web apps written in HTML5, JavaScript and other Web programming languages, and can deliver the same features employed by Bolt including the downloading files, desktop style layout and delivering high performance on resource constrained devices.

“Because of our expertise in rendering Web content on mobile devices, Bitstream was approached by developers trying to solve the problem of displaying dynamic Web content within an app without requiring the launch of an external browser, which takes the user outside of the app,” said Sampo Kaasila, vice president of research development at Bitstream.

“To Bitstream the solution was simple: use the Bolt architecture from within the app.”

The Bolt SDK can now be used by application developers looking to seamlessly integrate Web content in their applications with the widest possible mobile phone support.
