"Intel XDK is most suitable for developing Android applications."

What do you like best?

It is a one-step solution for development across cross platforms. Intel XDK helps me to develop a common solution for applications which are used in cross platforms. With this XDK I can write only one single code for running it on different platforms.

It can be used for developing hybrid apps which can be used on cross platforms. It also tests, previews and deploys HTML5 web applications for multiple platforms. Cordova platform is used by Intel XDK for compiling online applications which can be used for different platforms. It can be freely downloaded for Linux, Windows and Mac.

What do you dislike?

Though it is fairly good to use but its functionality is far behind its comprehensive documentation. It is very difficult to search and find in its documentation.

You can use it only if you are good at working with HTML, CSS skills and JavaScript. If you can manage to make a website on your own, then only you can work with Intel XDK.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Intel XDK is a boon for Application or game developer and a must have for developing apps from simple to very complex apps.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have realized that Intel XDK aims to compile the common source code which can be used on cross platforms on every operating system. Its development process is quite simple which combines all possible platforms into a unique package. Henceforth, it provides multiple functionalities which suit your needs.

Many functions which primarily belong to mobile OS such as camera, contacts, file, notifications and various others can be accessed through this kit using certain APIs. UI designer, debugger and emulator are some of the basic APIs used in Intel XDK.

"Construye facilmente aplicaciones móviles"

What do you like best?

Si tienes conocimientos de desarrollo web, con HTML y Javascript, es lo que necesitas para construir aplicaciones móviles (para teléfonos celulares) ya sea para iOS o para Android, sin necesidad de una cantidad enorme de aprender nuevas funciones, lenguajes o códigos complicados. Incluso tiene más opciones para construir aplicaciones para otras plataformas. Además es gratuito el software.

What do you dislike?

Me parece un gran descalabro que esten depreciando la compilación de las aplicaciones móviles en su servicio en la nube. Creo que eso hace más complejo un proceso que habían logrado hacer muy sencillo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Prueben el software de Intel XDK, que además de ser gratuito, tiene muchas funcionalidades, y hace sencillo un proceso que, fuera del software, es complicado y tortuoso.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Desarrollo sencillo de aplicaciones móviles que pueden llegar a ser muy potentes.

"Awesome Tool for Rapid App Development"

What do you like best?

I love Intel XDK because it is free and allows you to write once and publish everywhere. If you have experience writing mobile responsive webpages then learning curve is pretty small. It also makes use of the PhoneGap SDK so if you're already comfortable using that using this tool will be a breeze.

What do you dislike?

While its great to be able to utilize your web programming skills to build apps, it does require a bit more leg work to interface with mobile phone hardware such as the GPS, Accelerator ect. Also, since you are using phonegap plugins to accomplish this your load times and system resources will be more demanding than if you were to write the same app in Java (Android) or Objective C (Apple).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a web developer and want to get into App development, but don't know where to start, this is the product for you. Intel XDK is great for simple apps and even more large scale or complex Apps. The only catch is that it only supports the use of Client side programming (Scripting/CSS/HTML) so no PHP or ASP.NET

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For small businesses it can be expensive to write apps and deploy on multiple platforms. With Intel XDK you can write once and publish on all platforms with very little extra work. The software suit even include Android and Apple CSS templates to give your App that native feel.

"Intel XDK"

What do you like best?

It's very easy to use and get started. Provides support for multiple platforms such as Android, iOS, Windows, etc. You can start a project either using Cordova which allows you to use their APIs to access phone's hardware and sensors, (GPS, Bluetooth, Camera, etc.) or you could use a standard HTML5 which you will then need to use HTML's API and having to host your app on a web server.

I really like the fact that they provide simple prebuilt templates for UI and games so you could have a look around before you get started.

What do you dislike?

The general client itself needs a bit of work. The design could be improved and it is sluggish at times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Overall it a good application. If time is more important to you than quality then a hybrid frame work like Intel XDK should be a good start for you. It is also available for free so you don't need to pay additional payments.

"Intel XDK - a turbocharged PhoneGap Build"

What do you like best?

Although Intel XDK is a pretty full featured IDE for building hybrid mobile applications (it includes templates, a WYSIWYG design editor, Brackets-based code editor, app preview & simulator) the most amazing features I love to use it is the remote debugging and in-cloud build system. If you're not fixated on a mobile app development IDE yet, you should definitely give the editor a try, but I much more prefer NetBeans for code editing and Google Chrome for UI testing & debugging. However when it comes to testing the application "for real" (including Cordova features), Intel XDK takes the cake; it comes with Weinre support for detailed remote debugging and it's own app for testing your application on real devices allowing quick updates without a need to build and push binaries to your test device. It's also worth mentioning that at the time of my review, the cloud based build system supports an unlimited number of private apps unline the competitor PhoneGap Build by Adobe, which only supports one.

What do you dislike?

I'm not a fan of the Brackets editor, but Intel XDK doesn't force you to use that, you can just use an externall application to edit code, so it's not really a dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you like PhoneGap Build, you're going to love Intel XDK. Also if you're a Cordova developer, you're gonna love the remote debugging features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Setting up a cross platform Cordova development environment can be a pain, and I'm not really talking about the Windows/Linux and the Android SDK. On the other hand, Apple loves making developers' life harder by inventing never-before-seen hurdles and restricting the iOS build environment to Mac OS X and by extension, Apple hardware. Well, not anymore - Intel XDK does your Android, iOS (and other platform) builds in it's cloud, without the need of setting up any platform SDKs on your box. So screw you, Apple and your evil vendor locking techniques ;)

"Export JS apps to native android or ios apps"

What do you like best?

I can use IntelXDK as IDE for programming JS apps or even games, I can test my apps trought IntelXDK and the best think is, that I can export my javascript apps to another platforms. I can export my js game to native android/windows phone/ window/iOS app. I can use crosswalk project. I can use cordova plugins, when I export to android apps.

What do you dislike?

The performance of overall IDE is not the best and exported apps are not as fast as original native apps made with Java.

Recommendations to others considering the product

IntelXDK is gret if you are JS game or app developer and you want to publish your apps on Google play or Apple store. You can use all cordova plugins and it is possible show ads in your apps, for example admob, or smiliar.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this tool for export my Construct2 js games to native Android games.
