The world of computing has expanded beyond desktop and servers to include phones and tablets and is still evolving to wearables and the Internet of Things. Besides new form factors, there are now multiple operating systems on multiple architectures, new channels for selling and distributing software, and more ways to monetize your efforts.
Intel would like there to be more apps on every form factor, on every operating system, running on every architecture (obviously including Intel’s). The Intel® XDK team’s mission is to make it easy for people to create and publish apps that run on any architecture. The Intel® XDK build system can package HTML5 apps as hybrid apps that can be submitted to multiple stores. You can also create web apps and websites.
In our mission to ‘make it easy’, we’ve integrated a complete set of capabilities that let you start in a variety of ways, modify, emulate, debug, test, profile, and build an app that transcends operating systems, architectures, and form factors. Being ‘free’ is a part of being easy. We do require registration so that we can associate you with your cloud files and that you agree to the license terms.
Check out the BUILD tab, maximize the availability of your app by submitting it to multiple stores, then tell your friends!
