By using Cloud-based technologies like Google App Engine, your designs are accessible by anyone you choose,” said Wayne Parrott, vice president of product development for Genuitec

Genuitec, LLC, today announced a unique functionality to its newly released MobiOne Studio; the ability to send mobile Web apps or Web sites directly to mobile devices for review and testing using Google’s App Engine.

MobiOne's “AppSync” technology is a Cloud-based service that uses Google App Engine to host runtime versions of your mobile application designs, Web apps and Web sites. It then shares your applications with a distribution list of your choosing via text messages. MobiOne's Design Center and Test Center make use of the AppSync deployment service to automatically package and send your design or Web resources to the Cloud for easy app or mobile Web site review and testing.

Imagine sitting in a boardroom discussing your company's mobile Web strategy, when it's your turn to speak you quickly use MobiOne’s AppSync service to send your app to everyone's mobile device as a text message; they open the text message and see your mobile app in their browser. Not only have you impressed your colleagues and boss with your presentation of an actual app, but because MobiOne requires no coding skills, you spent only a few minutes before the meeting building a fully-functional app or Web site to impress everyone. Peers will believe it took days (with help from a software developer) to accomplish this, but you know it was as simple as putting together a PowerPoint presentation.    

“We see MobiOne as a game changer for communications professionals as it removes the software programming barrier to give anyone the ability to create mobile apps and Web sites. By using Cloud-based technologies like Google App Engine, your designs are accessible by anyone you choose,” said Wayne Parrott, vice president of product development for Genuitec. “We concentrated our first efforts on iPhone design, but will soon support Android and Blackberry devices.”

MobiOne consists of two powerful components; the Design Center and the Test Center. You can create apps in the Design Center by dragging and dropping components onto an easy-to-use design canvas and then brand the app with your own artwork.

You then have the option of running the designs in the MobiOne Test Center, which provides an industry-leading iPhone WebKit emulator with the ability to inspect the generated mobile code. To go a step further, you can test and share the mobile apps by sending it directly to anyone's phone.

MobiOne is available for Windows operating systems only, allowing Windows-based shops previously-unseen access to iPhone and other smartphone application design. While the 1.0 version focuses on iPhone application design, MobiOne’s roadmap will create the premiere cross-device toolkit for mobile development.

MobiOne is available for a 15-day free trial, and is conveniently priced at $99.95 for a perpetual license. Periodic feature upgrades will be available for a low fee as more smartphone devices are added and existing devices evolve.
