Luzern, Switzerland, 2013/02/11 - Moving beyond the traditional HTML5 and virtualization layers, now there is a new framework that allows developers to write native, cross-platform mobile applications using the tools and language that they already now and are familiar with.
The pro's and con's of the existing cross-platform methodologies are well documented, Performance, API access, language limitations, development tools etc and there is not really any solution currently that mitigates all of these. However, a new Kickstarter campaign has began, promoting software that is designed to solve exactly these issues.
Migon Software have released "migMobile" on Kickstarter
migMobile is a framework that allows you to build fast and fluid native mobile applications in the language of your choice. By providing a common standardized API across the different platforms/operating systems. with the software actually written and compiled natively for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. This enables a developer to choose their favourite environment and develop the application in the language that is most comfortable. The transfer of the application maintains all designs, views, layouts, controls, class structure and API calls to the new platform. The other language-specific logic can be transferred manually or by using the migMobile translator - currently in development and a goal for the campaign.
Version 1.0 of migMobile (which is available for release now and can be accessed via the "Perks") is a good beginning, it makes a substantial impact on the development time required to create full featured, fast and flowing native mobile applications.. even on a single platform, but there is still so much more that can and will be done as a result of the funding campaign. Such as expanding the control suite, Develop IDE plug-ins to improve the migration process, create common project structures and import / export functions, expand the standardised API and features set, and the development of a code translation utility.
The Kickstarter campaign is live now and the team at Migon Software are ready and waiting for respond to any queries.
