Drund Gives Devs and Users All-in-One Tool for linked Devices

Today, dev shop Azork has launched Drund, a broad, agnostic development and management platform for apps across all associated devices and browsers.

The platform also has an part for users, allowing them to “manage their online life from any Internet connected device,” according to a release.
Cross-platform development, especially in the mobile sector, is incredible of a rare and difficult promise to make. Developing not only for the two most accepted mobile OSes but also for desktops and web browsers is a time- and resource-consuming consuming proposition; but leaning on “all-in-one” dev tools can sometimes lead to messy results and spaghetti code.
Drund makes the promise of “single platform development,” saying that Devs can create each app just once and deploy it to any web or mobile browser — counting IE, FireFox, Chrome, Safari, and all the mobile browsers, too.
Approved, the app won’t be a inhabitant mobile or desktop app; still, even having a mobile app that works across all kinds of devices and all browsers is a fairly major success. In other words, if Drund even works a tiny bit, it would help to remove a lot of the hassles of multi-platform development.
There are no contribution fees for using Drund as a developer. This poses an attractive benefit to devs who currently shell out 30% of profits to the App Store for iOS app revenues; using Drund and creating mobile-web apps, they would completely bypass the App Store and the revenue split with Apple.
On the other hand, the disadvantage is that devs entirely bypass the App Store — and the Android Market, for that matter. As web apps, even mobile web apps, these bits of software lose the immediate access and exposure of the verified native-app marketplace.

The User Side

For users, Drund sounds it fits completely with the cloud-computing concept of web apps (as opposed to websites) that approach in marketplaces and stores and that can be ported from one device to another. The company says Drund gives users “the ability to put [their apps] all in one place that can be accessed anywhere the Internet is obtainable, from any device, on any platform, and without installing software.”
The Drund platform for users also aggregates social media data, as it includes apps for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, YouTube, Tumblr and more. And Drund TV and Drund Music means you can also access Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, Pandora, Rhapsody and Napster from your account.
in brief, this means that users can login once and way in, use and manage all their apps from any connected device — a boon for app-ophiles, gadget freaks and others. And in put into practice, Drund looks a lot like the web-based OSes we’ve seen a lot of over the past duo years, with a responsive and known interface.
