appMobi Open Sources Its Mobile Platform During Black Friday
mobiUs Web App Browser is a mobile browser that simulates a native application, allowing access to all hardware features of the device and it runs apps with or without an Internet connection. mobiUs uses HTML5’s Canvas to render applications. It is currently supported on iOS, but an Android version is planned for January 2012.
HTML5 Game Acceleration attempts to make HTML5 fast enough for games by using a DirectCanvas object that is not impacted by the overhead of reflowing text, mapping hot spots, and creating indexes for reference links. appMobi claims a 500% performance increase in a benchmark with multiple animated entities.
Currently, there are about 27,000 users using appMobi and 40,000 projects under development.
