Android Support Follows SDKs For JavaME and BlackBerry
Multi-Player Mobile Game Development Now Possible
New Developer Programme Will Offer Global Opportunities and Support
Burlington, USA and Tokyo, Japan – 27th April 2010, Zeemote®, an Aplix Corporation (TSE: 3727) group company, today announced the availability of its Android SDK enabling developers of Android games and applications to take advantage of analog control and navigation by integrating support for the award-winning Zeemote JS1 Controller.
The Zeemote Android SDK supports Android versions 1.6, 2.0 and upward and offers developers the opportunity to differentiate their application by adding unique and interactive controls offered with the Zeemote JS1 Controller.
Importantly, for developers, existing Android applications can be adapted in a matter of hours. Current Zeemote developers can download the SDK at zeemote.supportportal.com
. To become a new developer, register at www.zeemote.com/developers
. ** Bonus: Registered developers have access to download modified source code of the kwaak3 port project (What is kwaak3?) that integrates Zeemote JS1 game control for Android. **
By integrating Zeemote SDKs into their existing and future applications, developers can:
· provide a superior mobile gaming experience across multiple supported platforms (while maintaining compatibility with existing distribution channels)
● deliver true analog game control ( makes games stand out)
● enable multi-player mobile gaming (two controllers to one device)
● turn a TV-out featured smart phone into a mobile game console
In the next few weeks Zeemote will announce a developer programme, which will provide comprehensive support, promotion and unparalleled routes to market for game developers, including access to 100 million consumers a year.
Jim Adams, business development at Zeemote, said, “By adding the exciting Android SDK to our stable of supported platforms, we are able to give developers an excellent way in which to make their applications really stand out from the crowd. The Android community is proving itself to be wildly creative, pushing the boundaries of convention for mobile applications. When combined with the Zeemote JS1 Controller we expect to see some radical application creativity coming out of the Android community.”
