appMobi Invites Heroku Developers to Join the HTML5 Hybrid App Party with openBuild
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
appMobi (www.appmobi.com) today announced openBuild, a free cloud service that allows any developer to compile HTML5 code into a distributable "hybrid" app. Many of today's most popular apps, like Netflix, the New York Times and Facebook (News - Alert), are actually hybrid apps, developed with HTML5, and deployed in a thin native "wrapper" so that they can be distributed in various app stores. openBuild creates ready-to-sell binary apps for a plethora of app stores, including mobile app stores like the Apple (News - Alert) App Store?, Google Play (Android™), Amazon and Barnes & Noble NOOK®. openBuild also supports desktop app stores: Facebook, Chrome™ Web Store, Mozilla® Market and Intel (News - Alert) AppUp®.
With openBuild, appMobi initiates its support for the popular Heroku cloud application platform. Using the openBuild packaged Ruby library (called a "gem"), developers can create completely scripted cross platform app builds from within Ruby-based environments like Heroku and EngineYard, or even from their own computer. Unlike other hybrid app build services, like Adobe's (News - Alert) PhoneGap:Build, penBuild is completely free, and there is no limit to the number of apps that developers can build or publish. A fully featured Heroku add-on that integrates appMobi's Web services into Heroku's platform is under development as well.
Heroku developers can get openBuild at http://www.appmobi.com/openBuild.
