INFRAWARE Develops Android-to-Tizen Game and App Conversion Technology to Boost Tizen Ecosystem
- Supporting app developers to expand from Android to Tizen with ease
- Promoting fast and steady growth of Tizen ecosystem
SEOUL, South Korea, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative solutions for the Tizen operating system are quickly emerging with the official release of Tizen 2.0 Magnolia at MWC 2013 and the upcoming Tizen Developer Conference 2013 scheduled for May 22-24. INFRAWARE, an innovative mobile software and service company that helps people work and play better, today unveiled Polaris App Generator (PAG) that can transform Android games and applications to seamlessly run on the Tizen operating system (www.youtube.com/infrawareinc). The company will also announce its plan for the publishing service for Tizen games and applications converted through PAG technology next month.
INFRAWARE's PAG is based on its unique Polaris Android Framework (PAF) technology developed after long research in Dalvik Virtual Machine. PAF is a platform technology that allows Android applications to run on non-Android platforms including Tizen. It enables games and applications converted to Tizen, with the extension .tpk, to smoothly operate on diverse devices using the Tizen operating system.
Also, INFRAWARE is planning to provide a publishing service for converted games and applications in the Tizen Application Store. Developers who collaborate with INFRAWARE for their app conversion can take advantage of the company's proven track record of success in localization and publishing. INFRAWARE, together with its affiliate company, Selvas, specializing in mobile game development and publishing, will support developers in the new mobile operating system building up Tizen's ecosystem.
"INFRAWARE will support the new mobile operating system and its steady growth with our innovative technology and know-how," said Min Cheol Kwak, CEO of INFRAWARE. "Also, with Tizen and other newly emerging mobile platforms, we are committed to exploring and promoting continuous growth in efficiency and market expansion opportunities for game and application developers through technology and service efforts which minimize their additional costs."
Samsung has expressed their vision for the Tizen ecosystem with planned launches of Tizen smartphones in the third half of 2013. More information about PAG can be found at: http://www.polarismobile.com/eng/index.aspx.
