Marmalade also upgraded support for BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Windows Store and Tizen for all licence types. In addition, Indie, Plus and Pro customers now have support for Windows and Mac desktop, the Roku TV streaming technology and selected smart TV platforms.

As well as the SDK, developers have free access to Marmalade Web, the Marmalade Quick rapid application development kit, and Marmalade Juice, which allows developers to recompile Objective-C projects for Android.

Marmalade Technologies CEO Harvey Elliott (pictured) said offering the SDK for free was a response to developer feedback.

“We know from our community that maintaining native performance for apps across different platforms is a top priority, and now all developers can use a free version of the Marmalade SDK, meaning no compromise on performance whatever their platform and freeing them to concentrate on making fantastic apps and games,” he said.
