LOS ANGELES, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The new app store for the free semYOU app computing system heralds the future of software use: a large number of ad-free, no-cost apps offering entertainment, tools, games and management are now available at www.semyou.com. The apps are based on the latest Microsoft Silverlight technology and offer all the advantages of cloud computing. Startup semYOU thus represents true competition against Google's Apps Marketplace.
Applications are now available on local computers, easily, free of charge and on demand: a mail program, media player, word processing tools, games or social networking - in the app store, located at www.semyou.com, users will find a free app for just about any purpose. The only requirement is an internet connection and a semYOU account. After login, all applications can be run in three different ways: via the semYOU web desktop, directly via the app store or through a local link on desktop PCs, notebooks or netbooks. At the same time, all users benefit from the advantages of cloud computing: all applications only need to be loaded once. Thereafter, new versions are automatically available, with manual updates no longer required. Personal data is stored on a secure online drive for convenient access from anywhere.
The new app store will initially offer 25 applications. The offering will be gradually expanded over the next several weeks. While in Google's Apps Marketplace all applications must be installed using the not yet widely accepted Chrome browser, semYOU apps can be used with any browser. Thanks to Silverlight technology, for the first time, web applications can offer functions that have so far been reserved only for rich client applications. Unlike other app stores, the new semYOU app store is not exclusively geared toward smartphone use but can be used on local PCs as well.
"With semYOU, we're taking software use in the private and business spheres in a completely different direction," explains Volker Jahns, CEO of semYOU GmbH. "Unlike Google and Apple, we don't see the less capable HTML 5 as the standard of the future. Instead, we're betting on Microsoft's superior Silverlight technology. Soon, we'll also be releasing an Enterprise Suite from semYOU with software for businesses." This will allow companies as well - in conjunction with the semYOU Tool Suite - to create their own private clouds based on IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) or PaaS (Platform as a Service) By the time the next semYOU version is released, external developers will be able to easily develop their own apps using our software development kit (SDK) and upload them to the system.
