UI component and developer tool provider Telerik today announced Icenium, a browser-based integrated cloud environment that simplifies cross-platform mobile development by eliminating developers’ need to manage multiple development environments.
With Icenium, there is no need to download, configure or manage multiple SDKs, compilers, software packages and tools. Developers can build iOS apps without owning a Mac or using Xcode, and can build Android apps without using the Android SDK or Eclipse. Developers access the SDKs through the cloud via a browser.
Telerik joins other companies in providing cross-platform mobile-development solutions, but the company said Icenium differs from the other providers’ solutions by using the cloud to decouple the coding environment from platform dependencies.
“Icenium integrates all the best aspects of having a local development environment with all the best aspects of leveraging the cloud to remove platform dependency,” said Doug Seven, executive VP at Telerik. This enables developers to focus on app development, he said, instead of spending time managing platform-specific development environments.
Icenium’s tool set includes Icenium Graphite (an installed version for PCs), and Icenium Mist (a browser-based version). Both contain tools for coding, simulating, debugging and deploying to devices. Developers can also get support for publishing apps to the App Store or Google Play.
Icenium also includes Icenium LiveSync, which lets developers review changes made in real time across all connected devices without having to recompile for every change and device.
