VixML: A Simple Platform for the iPhone Platform

If you always wish to develop your own iPhone/iPod Touch applications but you don’t have enough SDK programming knowledge for this kind of devices you will most assuredly love VixML. This platform released by the developers of Viximo will allow

the designers to create basic iPhone applications (with full access to phone’s multi-touch interactivity functions) with a minimal amount of programming knowledge.

VixML toolkit includes an editor and simulation engine for building and previewing the coding designs. It is based on the XML markup language. It uses a number of pre-designated tags, the VixML WYSIWYG SDK and emulator. Those tags allow developers and designers to make their applications sensitive to some common iPhone user inputs, including shaking! So no need to touch any Objective C.
TechCrunch has covered the VixML launch and said that for now applications created using VixML can only be published to Viximo’s upcoming TrueFlirt app, which lets users create send to friends, and view “flirtatious” animations and mini-apps for the iPhone.

There are of course other interesting iPhone development platforms like:
  • Phonegap which is a development tool that allows web developers to take advantage of the core features in the iPhone, Android, and Blackberry SDK using JavaScript. The whole platform is a sort of container for web applications running on the iPhone that allows them to access the GPS, the camera, vibration controls and so on.
  • Big Five which is a web application gateway for the iPhone and iPod Touch that offers an API allowing developers to access native iPhone functions such as the GPS, and camera via JavaScript.
Here is a video showing a cool experience done with VixML I have got from VixML examples page.
