MoSync is a cross-platform  Mobile App development environment where we can build apps for native UI, Web UI as well as hybrid UI for Windows Phone 7.5, Windows Mobile 6.x , Microsoft SmartPhone 2003 library, Pocker PC , Android  & iOS (iPhone & iPad for Mac OS X). MoSync SDK comes with a built -in Eclipse IDE to build up apps in HTML5/js or native C/C++ API.  To start development with MoSync SDK 3.0 , download it here.

  • Before installing MoSync Reload SDK 3.0 , you need to install first Node.js 0.6 version in order to run MoSync apps. If you are first time coder in MoSync  SDK 3.0, better to start with MoSync SDK 3.0.
