Xform Computing, the Leader in Cloud-Powered Apps for Mobile Devices, Rolls Out the VirtualChrome App with Built-in Support for Flash, Java and Extensions on iPad

From Facebook Flash Games To Enterprise Java Apps And Productivity Sites, VirtualChrome's Cloud-Powered Browsing Delivers Features iPad Users Are Demanding

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Xform Computing, leader in cloud-powered apps for mobile devices, announces its VirtualChrome iPad app is available in the iTunes App Store.

Using the power of cloud computing, the VirtualChrome app lets users run the real "desktop-class" Chrome browser via a virtual system.

"Anyone who has used an iPad knows its limitations," said Kroum Antov, CEO of Xform Computing, "which include lack of support for Adobe Flash, Java applications, Chrome Extensions, and the Chrome Web Store. VirtualChrome delivers these key capabilities on iPad today."

Flash on iPad is now possible using VirtualChrome App: Users can play Flash games like FarmVille2 or Zynga Poker inside Facebook.com with existing points and status, ClubPenguin, Webkinz, Entanglement, and thousands more. The app also supports Flash productivity sites like Sliderocket presentation editing and Adobe online services such as Acrobat.com CreatePDF.

VirtualChrome also supports Java on iPad including Applets, JNLP and JAR files. Java is at the heart of many interactive websites and applications, but does not work natively on iOS. With VirtualChrome users can play Runescape on iPad, PartyPoker, GameTableOnline and more.

Thousands of commercial and enterprise Java applications can be instantly deployed on iPad using VirtualChrome. Examples include: Scottrade Pro and similar Java-based stock trade applications; United Airlines Unimatic scheduling program; and Zoho Meeting feature to host a Web Conference screen share on iPad.

Chrome Extensions are another capability of VirtualChrome, allowing browser-integrated features like Evernote Web Clipper on iPad, Adblock, or Stylish themes. These Extensions as well as Web Apps can be browsed and installed from the Chrome Web Store.

All connections are encrypted for maximum security.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy).

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...
