Pixate, a mobile application engine, helps developers design and code native apps using its software and allows for streamlined changes to CSS style and graphics. The company's main product, Pixate 1.0 for iOS, launched in January. The company plans to invest its new funding in expanding its staff of engineers to bring the software to Android and Mac platforms, release a full free version of the program, and improve samples and guides for developers, CEO and Co-Founder Paul Colton said in a company blog post. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based startup also plans to launch Pixate Labs, where it will publish beta versions of its software and other prototypes or experiments.
