Kynetx Developer Program Vision Comes to Life with More Than 800 New Apps

The platform is a rules-based language that allows developers to build new web experiences

Kynetx is a client-side revolution with its unparalleled development platform and program. At the heart of the platform is a rules-based language that allows developers to build entirely new web experiences that are cross-site, cross-platform and respond to context in the user’s environment. By leveraging this platform, the Kynetx developer program has already garnered more than 300 developers resulting in over 800 applications.

“Unlike any other platform, Kynetx offers developers the technology to easily resolve data mismatches coming from fractured sources of information. This capability results in a new breed of apps that act as powerful context-aware mash-ups,” says Stephen Fulling, Kynetx co-founder and CEO. “Information is only powerful if it touches you when and where you need it…in context. Kynetx gives developers the tools they need for connecting the dots.”

Richard Miller, a lead developer at FamilyLink.com, used the Kynetx Development platform to create a prototype application with the power to extend FamilyLink’s functionality to sites across the web, including Facebook, Gmail, LinkedIn, and Twitter. In just a few days, he crafted the prototype application that extends the experience of FamilyLink users when looking for relatives, adding relatives or communicating with them beyond the FamilyLink site.

“This is exactly the kind of viral growth and entrepreneurial innovation we were hoping would come out of our Developer Program,” Fulling continued. “Richard read a blog post about us, signed up, and was writing a ground-breaking app in minutes. The Kynetx Developer Program offers unparalleled tools and infrastructure to help unleash developers’ imaginations. Clearly, that’s what Richard Miller has done.”

Kynetx recently increased its “mash-up” capabilities with new Twitter API support. The Kynetx Rules Language now integrates with the Twitter API, using Twitter’s OAuth scheme, giving developers the ability to create Kynetx applications that can easily access Twitter data.

“The Twitter upgrade opens a myriad of possibilities for our Developer Program,” says Dr. Phillip Windley, Kynetx CTO. “Using Kynetx, you can create and deploy an app in minutes that understands and responds to Twitter data on any website or web-enabled device.”

Kynetx also offers semi-annual conferences designed for developers to explore ideas and learn from the experts, face to face. The next Kynetx Impact conference is scheduled for April 27th-28th in Salt Lake City. More information and registration can be found at www.kynetx.com.
