LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- Marmalade Technologies Ltd. are delighted to announce the launch and immediate availability of a brand new free license for their world leading, powerful cross-platform SDK, empowering app and game developers around the world to realize their creative and commercial vision without compromising on quality or performance across all mobile platforms.
Existing Marmalade customers also benefit from a comprehensive platform upgrade with BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Windows Store and Tizen platforms now included across all license types; and now Windows and Mac desktop, Roku and selected smart TV platforms available to subscribers of Marmalade's Indie, Plus and Pro licenses.
Marmalade's free SDK license enables developers to create apps and games for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows Store, BlackBerry and Tizen using a single codebase, delivering native performance on any device. As well as Marmalade's famous C++ SDK, all Marmalade developers have access to Marmalade Quick, Marmalade Web and Marmalade Juice - which gives developers the ability to recompile their Objective C iOS projects natively for Android. The free Marmalade SDK license also boasts a wide range of pre-integrated extensions including billing and IAP APIs for all major app stores, plus many leading advertising, social, game services, graphics, physics, analytics and database services.
Harvey Elliott, CEO, Marmalade Technologies Ltd: "Following feedback from our developer community, I'm delighted that we are now able to give all developers the world over the ability to experience the full power of the Marmalade SDK for free. We know from our community that maintaining native performance for apps across different platforms is a top priority, and now all developers can use a free version of the Marmalade SDK, meaning no compromise on performance whatever their platform and freeing them to concentrate on making fantastic apps and games."
App performance is a genuine concern for developers when considering a cross-platform strategy, as highlighted in a recent survey by app market specialists research2guidance. In their recent Cross Platform Tool Benchmarking 2013 report, research2guidance rated Marmalade top for performance across all cross-platform tools, with 88% of Marmalade users rating the performance of apps created with the Marmalade SDK the same or better compared to OS specific native SDKs.
Ralf-Gordon Jahns, Managing Director, research2guidance: "The market for cross-platform tools (CPTs) is becoming very crowded. Our CPT benchmarking shows that solutions differ a lot in terms of performance, support quality, skill requirements and costs and that there are only a few tools that stand out from the mass, Marmalade being one."
