AppForge Debuts Crossfire 5.0 for Microsoft .NET Device Developers

1/21/2004 - AppForge, Inc., the leader in multi-platform mobile and wireless application development solutions, announced shipment of Crossfire, AppForge's mobile and wireless application development environment for the Microsoft .NET platform. Crossfire enables the growing community of .NET developers to design, develop and deploy custom applications for mobile devices with greater speed and efficiency.

Using Crossfire, developers can create a single application, and then deploy it to any number of Palm OS, Pocket PC, or Symbian devices including PDA's, Smartphones, and industrial devices. Crossfire also provides versatility and flexibility by providing built-in database support, and integration with all the leading database synchronization solutions.

AppForge Crossfire 5.0 also offers a subscription program under which customers receive continuous updates to insure that applications will run on the latest mobile devices, thereby future-proofing them against the changes in mobile devices that are occurring nearly every day.

"With new mobile devices released weekly, and new uses for these devices discovered daily, it is difficult for an enterprise to remained standardized on any single brand or model,” said Gary Warren, CEO of AppForge. “Under AppForge's subscription model, enterprises can be assured that they will be able to run their mobile applications now and in the years to come.”

"AppForge has responded to the changing needs of our customers and we are very pleased with this product," Warren continued. "Crossfire dramatically reduces the time and expense of developing mobile and wireless applications for multiple devices.”

“We have been able to deploy more mobile applications than we originally expected, due to the increased productivity of the AppForge development tools,” said Rick Deland, Director of IT for Anderson News. “We are looking forward to implementing AppForge Crossfire into our .NET strategy.“

For existing MobileVB customers, Crossfire includes legacy support for MobileVB and Visual Basic 6, with additional language support coming soon. For more detailed information about Crossfire 5.0, visit the AppForge website at
