Appforge announce Crossfire - support for .NET platform

AppForge have announced the forthcoming availability of Crossfire. Crossfire is AppForge’s mobile and wireless application development environment for Visual Studio .NET 2003 and the .NET Platform. Developers can write .NET platform-based applications which can then run on Series 60 and UIQ.


Press Release:

AppForge Announces New Product To Support .NET Platform

ATLANTA (Oct. 28, 2003) – AppForge, Inc., a leading provider of software products and services for the handheld, mobile and wireless industry, today announced a new product line called Crossfire. Crossfire is AppForge’s mobile and wireless application development environment for Visual Studio .NET 2003 and the .NET Platform.

With Crossfire, developers can write .NET platform-based applications quickly and distribute those applications on most of the leading mobile and wireless devices including Palm OS, Pocket PC, Symbian UIQ, and Nokia Series 60 powered PDAs and Smartphones.

With the growing adoption in the industry for .NET, AppForge is adding the Crossfire product line to support this community of developers. AppForge will continue to market MobileVB, its current development platform for Visual Basic 6.0, allowing companies to extend legacy enterprise applications to mobile and wireless devices.

Microsoft .NET is a set of software technologies for connecting information, people, systems, and devices. This new generation of technology is based on Web services—small building-block applications that can connect to each other as well as to other, larger applications over the Internet.

“With Crossfire, .NET Framework-based applications can be distributed on the leading mobile and wireless devices,” said John Montgomery, director of the Developer and Platform Evangelism Division at Microsoft Corp. “By supporting Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 and the .NET Framework, AppForge will enhance the developer experience for the mobile and wireless industry.”

"We have been working very closely with System Integrators and Enterprise Developers who have asked us to support .NET in our mobile application development software," said Gary Warren, CEO of AppForge. "It is critical for them to target all of the leading mobile devices efficiently, and AppForge is the only company that enables cross-platform development with Visual Studio .NET."

Pricing and Availability
The suggested retail price of AppForge’s Crossfire is US $899. The product will be available in December 2003. Licensees of the AppForge Enterprise Developer Seat can obtain Crossfire at no additional cost. Discounts for other AppForge licensees are available. Please visit the AppForge website at www.appforge.com.
