Illumination Software Creator hits 4.0, adds platforms

updated 11:00 pm EDT, Wed July 6, 2011

Will be available as free update in August

Radical Breeze's software development environment Illumination Software Creator will reach version 4 later this summer, and will expand its range of platforms for which it can build apps from the existing Mac, Windows, Linux and iOS, Android and Flash (as well as lesser mobile platforms like the Nokia Maemo tablet) to include HTML5 web apps, WebOS and Windows Phone 7 apps as well. A new image library facility will now allow art assets to be used across all platforms.

The software specializes in visual programming, offering those with little or no background in building apps a method that allows either cross-platform (Mac, Windows, Linux) or platform-specific applications for advanced developers. The ability to rapidly create prototypes or functional web apps makes the software-creation process more streamlined and open to the possibility of adding platforms rapidly if demand warrants it.

The update will be available in early August and will be a free upgrade to existing users. The software normally sells for $50 from the developer's website, the Mac App Store and the Ubuntu Software Center. The Mac version requires OS X 10.6 or later.
