Add Community Functionality To Your Mobile Development Project
Developing applications is made much easier using ready made frameworks – libraries of code which contain a core set of ready made functionality.
UVA Mobiltec have announced their Mobile Community Framework which allows developers of applications for mobile devices to community enable their projects using a cross platform SDK – supported platforms include iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, Symbian, and Blackberry. By providing a framework which is cross platform UVA Mobiltec have addressed many of the problems facing developers today – with so many different platforms available. Users benefit too as they don’t have to make sure they are running the same operating system as their friends.
“In simple terms, MCF is the general purpose communications layer that enables Smartphone Apps to become both Group and Community Apps that are peer-proximity aware and enabled.”
One of the stand out features of the development platform is that the framework includes proximity awareness so not only can applications be enabled with social community functionality but they mobile devices can also indicate if friends are physically nearby and vice versa – subject to controls which can be customised.
Additionally, the framework is opportunistic – so it looks out for the best connection to get the data across, including Wi-Fi connections.
The framework is free for developers. To learn more visit UVA Mobiltec.
