Intel XDK is a cross-platform environment for mobile application development that lets people create apps for mobile phones and tablet computers using only JavaScript and HTML5.

Single Code Base

Intel XDK provides one code base to create mobile applications for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8, Amazon, Tizen and Nook. The aim is to make one source code compatible across multiple mobile operating systems. The platform tries to simplify the process by embracing all target platforms possible and puts them into a single package. Intel XDK mobile applications are written in HTML, JavaScript and CSS. Mobile apps written using web languages are referred to as hybrid apps. The objective is to provide an app development environment for all mobile and native web developers, thereby enabling cross-platform app creation.

Solves Quite a Few Problems

The platform tries to solve several major issues of enterprises and individual developers. All types of web developers who are familiar with JavaScript, HTML and CSS can develop apps. There is no need for learning new languages or acquire special skills. The development costs go down as freelance employees and enterprises only have to hire developers with a single skill set. The development speed, on the other hand, goes up. Intel XDK blends debugging, testing and tool building into an integrated solution, which increases developers’ productivity. There is no time wasted switching between different tools.
