The XenApp 6.5 Mobile Application SDK provides a rich tool kit for developers to write touch-friendly, mobilized applications that are hosted on Citrix XenApp and delivered to any device with Citrix Receiver. These mobilized applications are able to leverage a wide set of mobile device functionality including GPS, sensors, cameras, and device buttons in the same way that locally running, native applications do.
The Mobile Application SDK is targeted for use by enterprise developers, System Integrators, and ISVs to create new mobile-friendly applications to be hosted on XenApp. These applications leverage Citrix customers’ existing Citrix infrastructure and enables them to deliver mobilized, touch-enabled applications while keeping sensitive corporate data secure in the data center and not cached on an easily lost, misplaced, or stolen mobile device.
The SDK has over 50 APIs available along with a number of programming language bindings supported out of the box. These API’s allow developers to produce specific mobile-friendly UI’s for new and existing enterprise applications that match the capabilities of smartphone and tablet devices.
The Mobile Application SDK includes the following components, which can be downloaded here:
- XenApp 6.5 Mobility Pack, which installs on XenApp 6.5 to enable new mobility features
- Development framework – C / C++ /.NET, COM, which installs on the developer workstations
- Code Examples, Documentation, Developer Forum, and a Support Wiki
