Launched Today: Open Peer SDK for iOS & Desktop

Hookflash Platform - Open Peer iOS SDK

WebRTC Expo, San Francisco CA, – November 29, 2012—In 2010 at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference Steve Jobs announced, “we’re going to the standards bodies tomorrow and making FaceTime an open standard.” A great vision of tremendous value to tens of millions of users, unfortunately, it didn’t happen.

Today, Hookflash announces availability of the Open Peer Software Development Kit (SDK) for iOS, providing developers with Peer-to-Peer mobile voice, video and messaging on Apple’s iOS mobile platform. Open Peer iOS SDK aims to realize Jobs’ vision,” explains Hookflash CEO Trent Johnsen. “Developers can now use the Open Peer SDK to provide their customers with high quality voice, video calling and messaging in their own iOS apps”

People just want voice, video and text communications embedded in whatever they’re doing, that’s what Open Peer does. What is important here is that Open Peer enables developers to integrate real time communications into their iOS and desktop applications today and use it as P2P signaling for WebRTC / RTCWEB in browsers in the near future. Seamless high quality, low cost communications between any web enabled devices regardless of operating system, Open Peer.

The company simultaneously announced the availability of Hookflash Cloud Services (HCS), hosted cloud services to support Open Peer deployments based on the Open Peer SDK. Hookflash Cloud Services pricing is designed to support both large enterprise and carrier deployments as well as independent developers with affordable, scalable plans.
