Remote control for virtualized desktops

A new cabal representing the interests of mobile application developers is to be launched at CES next week.

The association is being led by the former executive director of the US Digital Media Association Jon Potter.

Potter told Infoworld that the Application Developers Alliance will initially be focussed on mobile development for platforms including Apple iOS, Google Android, and RIM BlackBerry.

The group is aiming to recruit thousands of developer memebers. "We're going to be at the meetups all around the country, we're going to be at conferences, we're going to be talking to folks, we're going to be polling people," said Potter.

The alliances will offer member befits such as product-testing facilities offering access to multiple platforms and tools and will also be lobbying the government on behalf of industry issues.

"Our thought now is there's an interesting space in the application developer community that isn't really organized. There's developer interest in privacy as well as IP policies related to patents and copyrights,” he added. While the association is starting off in the US it is also looking at global memberships and affiliations. ®
