(PRWEB) November 9, 2010
Nitobi Inc., the creators of the PhoneGap mobile application development framework, today announces the beta release of PhoneGap Build (http://build.phonegap.com). The new service makes it easy to deploy mobile applications across multiple platforms, including Google Android, Palm, Symbian, BlackBerry and more.
"Smart software development shops are using the cloud for test and deployment, avoiding on-premise hardware and configuration hassles," said James Governor, analyst and co-founder at Redmonk. "PhoneGap Build now takes the same approach with Nitobi's open source compilation framework for turning standards-based web apps into native phone apps ready for app stores."
PhoneGap Build is an extension of PhoneGap (http://www.phonegap.com). Since winning the Web 2.0 Expo LaunchPad competition in 2009, PhoneGap has been widely recognized as a game-changer for mobile app development. The open source code has been downloaded more than 350,000 times and thousands of apps built using PhoneGap are available in app stores and directories.
To sign up for the PhoneGap Build Beta program, visit http://build.phonegap.com. Nitobi will invite new beta users each week until general release. PhoneGap Build is free during the beta period and will remain free for open source projects.
Nitobi Inc. (http://www.nitobi.com) has been designing sophisticated web and mobile applications for enterprise customers for more than a decade. The Vancouver-based software development company also builds developer tools that are used by hundreds of thousands of software developers around the globe. Clients include some of the largest firms in the world such as NASA, Bank of America, Time Warner, and Tyco.
