App development platform appMobi announced today that the apps created using its platform have been used over 100 million times by users. As of today, more than 50,000 app developers are using appMobi’s XDK product, a cross-platform development kit, to create HTML5 applications. Various types of apps been designed through the appMob platform, in categories including media, games and retail.
In an article by Justin Lee, the author conveys that the apps created using appMobi can be published to the iOS, Android app stores, Facebook, and can be used by mobile web users on any device.
The numbers announced today – 100 million uses and 50,000 developers – represent a 500 percent increase in the last year. According to the AppMobi CEO Dave Kennedy, the company’s growth is due to the app industry moving to DIY HTML5 tools, rather than native app development. Native app development platforms, by their nature, are proprietary. HTML5, on the other hand, is universally compatible, meaning developers can use one code base and make it run on any devices or platforms out there.
