Introducing BridgeIt!


ICEsoft is pleased to announce the availability of BridgeIt!

BridgeIt enables any HTML5 web application to access a wide range of native mobile device capabilities using a very simple JavaScript API. BridgeIt is supported on the most popular mobile platforms, such as Apple iOS, Google Android, and Microsoft Windows Phone. Using BridgeIt, HTML5/JavaScript application developers can leverage such native-device features as:

  • Camera for photo and video recording
  • Barcode scanning (using the camera)
  • Contacts list
  • Location tracking
  • Microphone for audio recording
  • Cloud-push for creating native device notifications from within the web-app.
  • …and even an Augmented Reality service.

No native development, packaging, or app store publication is required.

While this is exciting news for HTML5 JavaScript developers, there is also exciting news for ICEfaces developers, as ICEfaces 4 will include mobile components that provide access to the BridgeIt native device features for JSF developers, without requiring the use of any JavaScript!

HTML5 JavaScript developers can start using BridgeIt today! ICEfaces developers should look for the new mobile / BridgeIt components to be included in the upcoming ICEfaces 4 Beta release.
