Software above the level of a single device.

Appvoyage: Boldly going where no developer ever thought was possible.
Appvoyage is of the future. A future where Apple and Google won’t to compete cannibalistically for market share by leveraging SaaS offerings like their app stores for the iphone and android. It is the concept that will break though walled gardens and technical barriers. It is the future and it is here!
So, what is Appvoyage? As a pioneer SaaS offering, Appvoyage allows RIA developers to target the increasing rich mobile apps market, through a comprehensive resource mashup . Using existing frameworks, developers can import content and/or functionality specs from the web, utilise the proprietary AppPod features to make the content more portable across mobile devices and then publish them to multiple app stores, or on the web, as a service.
This might have many implications on existing business models for app stores. Will iTunes / Android Market fully endorse the interoperability powering apps developed through the Appvoyage AppPod? I guess, for now, the ‘future’ is still under development. If Appvoyage can get over its teething issues and generate enough adoption by the RIA development community, perhaps this service will truly set the pace for ‘Software above the level of a single device’.
