The 10 Coolest Cloud Startups Of 2013 (So Far)


Codename One

CEO: Shai Almog

Codename One is targeting the mobile device application development market with an eye toward establishing technology versatile enough to accommodate the full range of mobile platforms currently delivered through the cloud, as opposed to having separate platforms for iPhones, Android devices and Windows devices. As more players enter the increasingly competitive mobility space, the complexity is expected to increase.

The company’s SDK uses IDE plug-ins, a visual design tool and simulators for the various environments. Codename One, which has been in development for the past five years, is intended to provide "a single, coherent product" that can work within the development environments of all the major manufacturers.
