Mobile platform provider Kony Solutions has launched KonyOne, which it describes as: "the only platform that enables a single application definition to deliver both native applications and mobile web (HTML5 and non-HTML5) across phones, tablets, kiosks and desktops". Kony has also introduced a number of enhancements to its platform, to increase the level of support for HTML5.
The KonyOne platform offers native support for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, Java ME, Symbian, and webOS, along with simultaneous support for the mobile web, and, says Kony, provides a secure, scalable and extensible mobile middleware runtime platform that can be seamlessly integrated with existing services. It also suports the following HTML5 updates:
“At Kony, we believe the future includes native, mobile web, and HTML5 hybrid or ‘mixed mode’ applications,” says Kony CEO, Raj Koneru. “Using the KonyOne platform, developers are able to use a single code base to create optimised applications for any device, operating system or browser. They can create native, mobile web, or HTML5 applications, or any combination, to achieve the best individual user experience.”
Kony has introduced several enhancements to its platform to provide complete HTML5 support, supporting updates including touch-specific features, CSS 3.0 specifications, and widget enhancements.
