He continues, “With the new debugging features of HTML5/JavaScript apps in Reload, we make it viable to do more serious, professional software development using web technologies.”

More details for developers are available below.

Mosync SDK 3.1
The MoSync SDK enables mobile developers to build and compile apps for up to nine different platforms at once, using C/C++ or HTML5/JavaScript, or a combination of both. MoSync has consolidated its support for Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 platform which means that all of the powerful C++ libraries in MoSync work automatically in applications built for Windows Phone 7 devices. In addition, MoSync has extended its NativeUI C++ Library with support for several new widgets.

Support for in-app purchases is available as native features in the Android and iOS platforms. With MoSync SDK 3.1, MoSync has introduced a new C++ library and C API for managing in-app purchases for both Android and iOS using the same code base. MoSync's new Purchase C API and its C++ Library wrapper makes it easy for developers to enable app users to make in-app purchases, let them view purchase and refund histories, and to track each user's transaction status.

New User Guides and Tutorials for this SDK release include an overview of the Purchase Library and API and a new tutorial ("Managing In-App Purchases") highlighting the steps needed to implement in-app purchasing within your application.

MoSync Reload Beta 4
With MoSync Reload, web developers can easily create native mobile applications using familiar HTML5/JavaScript technologies, and see the effect of the changes instantly on multiple devices, comfortably developing on their desktop platform of choice.

In Reload Beta 4, MoSync introduces new functionality for debugging of HTML5/JavaScript apps, including a new remote logging feature across iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7, which means you can instantly view all logs from your HTML5 and JavaScript code directly in the Reload server interface. In addition, MoSync has added JavaScript On-Device Debugging support on the iOS simulator in MoSync Reload, which enables iOS app developers to access and debug their JavaScript code using the Safari Web Inspector. This debugger has full debugging capabilities; developers can use breakpoints throughout their code and dynamically change elements in the Document Object Model (DOM) and see the result of their changes directly on the simulator even without reloading the app.

New User Guides and Tutorials available for MoSync Reload include “Installing MoSync Reload,” “Debugging JavaScript with rlog,” “Debugging HML5/JavaScript on OS X” and “Reading Sensors from JavaScript.”
