Apple and GE bring Predix industrial apps to iPhone and iPad
But the first generation of industrial mobile apps left more than a few things to be desired. As developers worked to push out as much functionality as possible to end users, consistency of design and ease of use fell by the wayside. Recently, Apple and GE announced a partnership to deliver more powerful industrial apps. The new Predix software development kit (SDK) for iOS means industrial operators will soon see sleek, native mobile apps for iPhone and iPad offering the fine-tuned user experience that typifies the Apple ecosystem.
The Predix SDK for iOS combines the ease of use of the world’s most advanced mobile operating system with the robust analytics capabilities of Predix, the app platform built for the Industrial Internet. It provides developers the tools to build powerful IIoT apps faster than ever, while incorporating the intuitive design elements that have made iPhone and iPad the world’s user-friendliest mobile devices.
