Today we’re taking real time video on mobile by storm with the launch of our PhoneGap plugin. Don’t want to code in a statically typed language (Objective-C)? We got your back.
For a long time we’ve provided a video chat API for web apps and we’ve seen interesting applications. Remote photo-booth, online collaboration, consultation apps, you name it!
A few months ago, we opened up a whole new realm of possibilities with an iOS SDK and even more interesting applications emerged. Unfortunately, iOS developers and web developers dance to different tunes and web developers watched in envy as iOS developers greedily hacked away on mobile applications with OpenTok API. Remote controlled robots, live event broadcasts, mobile consultations, etc.
Start with our PhoneGap github page. Go through the readme, it has installation instructions. It only took me 4 minutes, and I have video to prove it. Try it out, let us know what you think!
If you catch any bugs, tweet at me and I’ll squash it.
