Crossfire Jolts AppForge with Productivity Award from SD Magazine

3/22/2004 - AppForge, Inc., leader in multi-platform mobile and wireless application development solutions, was awarded Software Development Magazine's 14 th Annual Jolt Productivity Award for its mobile and wireless application development environment for .NET called Crossfire. AppForge was one of three winners along with IBM and Sybase in the mobile development tools category.

AppForge was chosen as one of the 92 finalists from over 300 nominations by a team of Software Development editors, columnists and industry gurus who felt that AppForge Crossfire significantly jolted the industry by creating a software product that is faster, easier and more efficient.

"More than 80% of our customers have reported significant increases in their mobile development productivity since switching to AppForge Crossfire," said Gary Warren, CEO of AppForge. "I'm not surprised that we won a productivity award, but I am very pleased that an industry leading publication like Software Development recognized the same productivity benefits that our customers have been reporting."

AppForge Crossfire enables the growing community of Microsoft .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, significantly increasing development productivity.

For many years, Jolt cola has been the drink of software developers for sustenance during development project marathons and has been the sponsor of the annual awards presentation for the past 13 years.

"This competition continues to evolve," boasted Editor in Chief Alexandra Weber Morales. "Witness the diverse finalists in the mobile development tools category, showing how viable this burgeoning category of applications has become."

Technical Editor Rosalyn Lum added, "Products nominated this year were truly exciting, representing the spirit of innovation that's still jolting the industry, despite a very challenging technology environment."

These awards were announced on March 17 at SD West 2004 in San Jose, California. Software Development Magazine will feature the Jolt award winners in the June issue.
