Rhomobile Announces Rhodes Elite Partners

Rhodes Partners Help Companies Build Cross-Platform Apps Quickly and Transfer Skills Along the Way

CUPERTINO, Calif., Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Rhomobile today announced the Rhodes Elite Partner network, an expanding group of select development shops around the world that are using the Rhodes cross-platform smartphone development framework to build native apps for their clients. Network partners are creating native mobile apps utilizing Rhomobile offerings including Rhodes, RhoHub, the world's first development as a service for mobile and RhoSync, a standalone server that keeps data current and available on users' smartphones even when offline.

"I am very proud to introduce the Rhodes Elite Partner network," said Adam Blum, CEO of Rhomobile. "These are development shops that are not only using Rhodes to build native smartphone apps for their clients, but enabling their clients through training and ongoing support to properly execute a mobile solution within their company."

The rising demand for cross-platform smartphone apps in the enterprise requires developers to create powerful, information-rich apps speedily and within budget. Rhodes allows web and Ruby developers to provide their clients with compelling apps without having to spend additional time and money training on Objective-C and other complex native language instruction. By using existing web development skills, building with Rhodes slashes development time while eliminating the daunting task of coding for multiple OSes.

"We use Rhodes and RhoSync to build native smartphone apps because it's Ruby so it's easy and very fast to develop, and with RhoSync we do not have to build a sync app which used to take a lot of time," said Jonathan Tarud, founder and CEO of Koombea. "Rhodes is also multi-platform out of the box, which ends up saving our clients tons of money in development costs."

Companies around the world can now find a development shop to build them a useful and functional app for all devices, receive training in the process and all within budget. With raised efficiency standards, development shops are able to concentrate on client needs and successful integration.

"With Rhodes and RhoSync, we have uncovered a whole new market with more opportunities for our company," said Alberto Padilla Luengas, founder of Innku. "Now we can offer great value for enterprises with competitive rates and a short turnaround. We have leveraged our web expertise in HTML and Ruby so we can focus on business logic and user experience."

Rhodes Features:

  • Built from the ground up to leverage smartphones in the enterprise
  • Allows developers to write app interface in Ruby and HTML and simultaneously build as native apps (not web apps) for all smartphones
  • Supports iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Symbian and Android
  • Makes developers five times more productive for even a single smartphone OS
  • Support for Push Synchronized Data on iPhone and BlackBerry
  • Built-in tools for test-driven development
  • Database-based event logging
  • Interactive debugger (Android/iPhone emulators)
  • Allows users to work with synced local data for rapid access and ease of operation when disconnected or offline
