SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/26/11 -- Kony, the leading mobile application platform provider, announced today that the Kony Platform now supports the iPad 2 and Apple's iOS 4.3. These additions enable enterprises to take advantage of the unique, native device capabilities of the iPad 2 and Apple's iOS 4.3 for their new and existing applications. These capabilities include video communication, multi-tasking and multi-touch features. With this new support, Kony clients can continue to implement ubiquitous, future-proofed mobile application deployments and seamlessly navigate the ever-changing mobile landscape.
"The exploding popularity of the iPad and Apple devices in general shows no sign of abating. Our clients need to be everywhere their customers are, without dealing with the headache and overwhelming cost of creating, deploying and maintaining mobile applications," explained Raj Koneru, CEO of Kony Solutions. "By announcing support for the iPad 2 and iOS 4.3, we're demonstrating once again to our customers that with Kony, they can effortlessly keep in lockstep with today's, and tomorrow's, hottest device and OS without compromising the user experience or investing additional IT resources."

"Our team is constantly innovating and responding to the changing marketplace -- anyone in the mobile industry knows that today's hottest device can easily be yesterday's news in a matter of months. Any application developed on our platform is future-proofed and positioned to take full advantage of the cutting-edge features offered by each new device and OS."
