Recursion Unveils Universal Android, .NET CF and Symbian Platform

Voyager Pervasive Platform Achieves "Write Once, Run Everywhere" for Application Messaging and Communications

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 10, 2008) - CTIA Booth #942 -- Recursion Software, Inc., an innovative provider of next-generation platforms and intelligent middleware, today at CTIA Wireless and IT 2008 announced a new release of Voyager, a pervasive software platform that blurs the lines between Android, Symbian, Microsoft .NET and Compact Framework (CF), and JEE. Voyager turns traditional software development on its head by allowing developers to natively write and maintain one code-set in either Java or .NET and publish the code to the device(s) of their choice regardless of the virtual machine they employ, instantly expanding an application's device and market reach. Combined with Voyager's existing support for more than 15 embedded operating systems, this release signifies Voyager's evolution into a pervasive platform for all "Screens of Life" (TV, PC, phone, car, ultra mobile PC). A free developer download of Voyager is available at

Voyager is a smart-client solution that picks up where browser applications leave off by forgoing a centralized server and embracing a true peer-to-peer decentralized architecture. Nodes become both an intelligent client and server that can publish and subscribe to an ad hoc mobile community over any wired or wireless network. Voyager enables extremely lightweight code to reside on the client so that transactions and persistence occur locally with or without a network connection, avoiding any single point of failure or scaling issues that can hinder even today's most popular mobile applications. Cross-platform decentralized peer-to-group messaging, as well as vehicle, phone and ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) emergency response applications are two prototypes being developed.

"Voyager has now achieved what many thought was not possible: a single, unified platform solution to the badly fragmented mobile landscape," said Bob DeAnna, CTO with Recursion Software. ".NET and Java developers alike now can access new markets and devices never before possible, including Symbian and forthcoming Android phones. Similarly, developers are able to code in the application language that makes most sense and deploy on most popular devices. We are extremely excited to see next-generation applications that can span not only heterogeneous mobile devices, but for the first time extend to cars, kiosks, scanners, UMPCs, basically the entire embedded and desktop worlds."

This release marks Voyager's seventh major revision. With iPhone and BREW integration currently underway, Recursion will follow with location and collaboration engines, universal collections, and GUI support.
