AppMobi has launched its public beta for PlayMobi, a tool for HTML5 game development and deployment for iOS, Android and Facebook, which also offers "1touch" cross-platform in-app purchases for different payment systems. Calling the feature "an industry first," AppMobi says PlayMobi games automatically complete transactions for the appropriate payment system based on the device, such as iTunes for iOS, Google Payments for Android, Credits for Facebook, and Paypal for Open Web (web games outside of Facebook). The company believes that by providing a JavaScript programming interface that supports e-commerce across the platforms, PlayMobi's "1touch" system will eliminate the annoyances developers face when implementing in-app purchases for multi-platform projects. PlayMobi also allows for multi-device play, so a user can carry their profile, progress, scores, and achievements from the Facebook version of an HTML5 game to his or her iOS/Android device, or vice versa. Additionally, PlayMobi features community features (e.g. leaderboards, user logins with Facebook connect), analytics tools, and more. AppMobi is offering the SDK free of charge to a limited number of developers during its beta testing phase.
