Kryos Velocity Enables Rapid Development for Location Based Applications for BlackBerry Smartphones

With the latest release of their Velocity Mobile Platform, Kryos enables enterprises to rapidly develop and deploy applications that leverage on board GPS hardware, among other new features.

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 10, 2009) - Kryos Systems Ltd., an award winning software and services company and producer of the Velocity Mobile Platform, announced today the launch of Velocity version 1.2, the latest iteration of their integrated development environment specifically designed for building and managing enterprise applications for BlackBerry(R) smartphones. In addition to adding GPS support, Velocity 1.2 offers a number of key features including: device side scripting and validation, graphing, and BlackBerry(R) OS 5.0 support for the latest BlackBerry smartphones including the BlackBerry(R) Bold(TM) 9700 and BlackBerry(R) Storm2(TM) 9550 smartphones.

"With the introduction of graphing and GPS support in Velocity 1.2, businesses are able to tightly integrate these features into their applications to further enrich mobile reporting and workflow applications," said Rick Hugie, Kryos CTO.
