HTML5 development firm, appMobi releases HTML5 open source code for mobile technology development elements aimed at accelerating migration to HTML5.

The newly open sourced technology will include the appMobi cross-platform device APIs, which support HTML5 development for both Android and iOS platforms. appMobi will also release the source code for its much touted "mobiUs" browser, which allows HTML5 Web apps to perform identically to native apps. HTML5 developers are now also offered technology such as appMobi's "DirectCanvas", which accelerates HTML5 canvas rendering, physics calculations and sound by as much as 1500 per cent, providing native performance to HTML5-based games.

"We believe in the open Web and the importance of an open environment for mobile apps and services," said appMobi's CTO, Sam Abadir. "To help advance the industry's move from native apps to Web-based apps, we are sharing our mobile HTML5 knowledge with the global software development community. Among other benefits, the innovations in this open source release will improve the mobile Web experience through faster downloads, better offline usage and dramatic HTML5 game performance increases. "

The open source release of appMobi's iOS XCode and Android Eclipse projects will be of particular benefit to developers who want to extend existing native apps with HTML5 tabs or views. For example, a developer can easily add a photo sharing feature to a native app by mixing appMobi's enhanced PhoneGap with Facebook JavaScript APIs. With millions of existing JavaScript components and Web services, the possibilities are limitless, says appMobi.

appMobi's HTML5 open source, released on November 25, will join the firm's previous open source releases at the GitHub repository. Developers who wish to download the source code can visit appMobi's website at
