Rhomobile releases new smartphone mobility applications

Include Rhodes smartphone app development framework and RhoSync Enterprise Smartphone Server

By CBR Staff Writer

Rhomobile has released new smartphone mobility offerings providing enterprise smartphone apps with capabilities including push and sync data required for enterprise mobility efforts. The new offerings include the Rhodes smartphone application development framework and RhoSync Enterprise Smartphone Server.

Rhomobile said that the RhoSync is a standalone server that keeps enterprise application data current and available on users’ smartphones. The company claims that Rhodes integration with RhoSync makes it the only smartphone framework to feature sync.

According to Rhomobile, the RhoSync server uses smartphone APIs (BES Push and iPhone 3.0 SDK Push) to optimise synchronisation enabling real-time updates of backend application information. It also uses a background paging technique to synchronise information down to the smartphone, while giving the user the perception of immediately retrieved data.

The company said that the Rhodes framework allows developers to code native smartphone applications in HTML instead of in Objective-C or other native device operating system languages. It also allows for the creation of native mobile applications that take advantage of device capabilities such as GPS, PIM data, and camera.

Adam Blum, CEO of Rhomobile, said: Modern smartphones offer the power, connectivity and advanced capabilities to make the dream of a mobilized enterprise workforce a reality. Rhomobile solutions including Rhodes and our RhoSync Enterprise Smartphone Server provide the missing pieces required to utilize these tools in enterprise efforts.
