New App Creator Simplifies Application Development, Distribution and Maintenance

GUILDFORD, England, July 16, 2010 - Volantis (www.volantis.com) today launches Framework 6.0, a
significant expansion of its core mobile content delivery platform
(www.volantis.com/framework) . This latest release allows developers
to build superior websites and applications using HTML5 and CSS3, without
needing to rely on more complicated Java programming.

Key components include a new app creator, an enriched HTML5 and CSS3
toolkit, better device portability and improved page rendering. The new app
creator allows developers to deploy applications that can run across native
and web clients and be packaged up for both Apple and Android app stores.
Developers will now be able to create an application once, distribute
everywhere in one go and maintain it over time, removing the need to
distribute individual updates.

The improved feature toolkit will allow HTML5 developers to produce a
more compelling user experience, allowing all applications and websites to
utilise, gradient, 3D transforms, cover flow, reflections and opacity amongst
other properties. The toolkit also ensures that developers are able to
produce sites and applications far more simply and quickly, without having to
build individual versions for different browsers and handsets.

The new release also addresses some of the portability challenges which
developers face as a result of the differences in new HTML5 browser
standards: the introduction of new features without warning and the discovery
of "bugs" in newly manufactured mobile devices. Framework 6.0 is able to
implement workarounds and fixes to all of these difficulties, while also
ensuring the application or site is compatible with the 7,000+ devices in
Volantis' database.

"HTML5 offers great potential for developers to produce web-based
applications which offer a rich media experience. However, as browser vendors
implement different features for HTML5, end-users might not be able to take
full advantage of their device's capabilities," comments Mark Watson, CEO of
Volantis (www.volantis.com/mark-watson) . "For developers, this
usually means designing applications that have to be tweaked to overcome the
bugs unique to each manufacturer's version of HTML5 and CSS3 employed. With
Framework 6.0, developers can produce browser-based and native applications
with highly customisable, out-of-the-box user interface components, which
fulfil the potential of the latest handsets as well as rendering across
legacy devices."

The platform will be available immediately within commercial releases.
