Native UX & Performance
Access to all native APIs and advanced compiler technology allow you to deliver a beautiful user experience with native performance.
This is how it works
Java bytecode to native
RoboVM translates Java bytecode into native ARM or x86 code. Apps run fast directly on the CPU. No interpreter involved.
Native API and hardware access
RoboVM includes a Java to Objective-C bridge that makes it possible to call into the native iOS CocoaTouch APIs. Objective-C objects can be used just like any other Java object.
Easily share code between desktop, Android and iOS apps. The standard classes (java.lang.*, java.util.*, etc) included in RoboVM are based on Android’s runtime.
The compile time tools are GPLv2 licensed. Runtime code is licensed under business friendly licenses, mostly the Apache License v2.0.
RoboVM comes with Eclipse and Maven integration. Use the tools you’re used to from the Java world.

We are really happy with RoboVM. From the day we first tried the beta, it has “just worked,” exactly as advertised and our first app was a breeze to get running on iOS in addition to its Android counterpart. The support team is fast to respond to any queries on the most common forums. We will definitely use RoboVM again!Chris Fogelklou
