Xform Computing, the Leader in Cloud-Powered Apps for Mobile Devices, Rolls Out the VirtualChrome App with Built-in Support for Flash, Java and Extensions on iPad

From Facebook Flash Games To Enterprise Java Apps And Productivity Sites, VirtualChrome's Cloud-Powered Browsing Delivers Features iPad Users Are Demanding

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Xform Computing, leader in cloud-powered apps for mobile devices, announces its VirtualChrome iPad app is available in the iTunes App Store.

Using the power of cloud computing, the VirtualChrome app lets users run the real "desktop-class" Chrome browser via a virtual system.

"Anyone who has used an iPad knows its limitations," said Kroum Antov, CEO of Xform Computing, "which include lack of support for Adobe Flash, Java applications, Chrome Extensions, and the Chrome Web Store. VirtualChrome delivers these key capabilities on iPad today."

Flash on iPad is now possible using VirtualChrome App: Users can play Flash games like FarmVille2 or Zynga Poker inside Facebook.com with existing points and status, ClubPenguin, Webkinz, Entanglement, and thousands more. The app also supports Flash productivity sites like Sliderocket presentation editing and Adobe online services such as Acrobat.com CreatePDF.

VirtualChrome also supports Java on iPad including Applets, JNLP and JAR files. Java is at the heart of many interactive websites and applications, but does not work natively on iOS. With VirtualChrome users can play Runescape on iPad, PartyPoker, GameTableOnline and more.

Thousands of commercial and enterprise Java applications can be instantly deployed on iPad using VirtualChrome. Examples include: Scottrade Pro and similar Java-based stock trade applications; United Airlines Unimatic scheduling program; and Zoho Meeting feature to host a Web Conference screen share on iPad.

Chrome Extensions are another capability of VirtualChrome, allowing browser-integrated features like Evernote Web Clipper on iPad, Adblock, or Stylish themes. These Extensions as well as Web Apps can be browsed and installed from the Chrome Web Store.

All connections are encrypted for maximum security.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Whether you develop apps or manage business critical apps that help fuel your business, what happens when users experience sluggish performance?
