Simulation technology specialist Zimusoft has released UmbrellaSDK, a new cloud-based integrated development environment (IDE) for iOS and Android application development. Staking a claim for recognition as the first cross-platform mobile development tool that runs entirely in the browser, developers will not need to download or install any data or code to use this new tool.
Using the "everything under one umbrella" tagline, from its cloud-based home this new tool provides a code window, assets for application construction, and on-screen simulators to help tune use case scenarios post deployment.
Zimusoft says that UmbrellaSDK makes it possible to code and deploy apps to an iOS or Android device instantly with no provisioning required. The code editor and all the mobile simulators (for iPhone, iPad, and Android) are included. Developers are urged to try the product and use their browsers to type code, run it in the onscreen mobile device of their choice, and then publish it to the App Store or Android Market.
