Ludei Launches a "PhoneGap Killer"

The HTML5 vs Native Debate Is Over: Ludei Takes HTML5 Apps Into Native; Ludei's CocoonJS Platform Outperforms Adobe's PhoneGap Solution by 10X

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2014) -  Ludei, the company that fixed HTML5 performance for games, today launches a similar solution that delivers significant improvement to cross-platform apps built in HTML5. Ludei introduces an update to its CocoonJS platform, delivering 10 times the speed and performance of Adobe's PhoneGap, and introducing the first true PhoneGap alternative for the developer marketplace.

Ludei has been helping more than 20,000 game developers publish HTML5 on iOS, Android, Amazon, and other platforms, with native-like performance and features. Now, the company opens its CocoonJS platform to every app developer, immediately expanding its addressable market to more than 1M developers worldwide.

"Performance in HTML5 is no longer a problem for developers," said Eneko Knorr, founder and CEO, Ludei. "Ludei's proprietary acceleration technology enables HTML5 apps and games to run at 60 frames per second on every mobile device. Now, finally, HTML5 is ready for cross platform app development."

"Code once, run everywhere" becomes possible with HTML5

Thousands of HTML5 app developers have been using Adobe's PhoneGap, locked into a system that requires considerable developer compromises in performance. With Ludei's new platform, developers now have a faster and better alternative.

Ludei also solves the challenge to run WebGL content on iOS devices -- an iPhone or iPad -- by allowing WebGL developers to publish apps and games featuring the 3D content demanded by consumers, using WebGL.
