Brew Software Develeopment
Mobisoft Technologies believes that high performing technical players are always surging ahead of the competition by doing one thing right – using information technology to build competitive advantage and market share. We use top rung technology and systems integration to provide technology R&D, IT diagnostics, systems integration, technical architectures, business intelligence and infrastructure consulting among others.
We work with more than 2500+ handsets and work with all major US, Canadian, European and Asian carriers. Among the applications that we have developed/ported are some very popular games, mapping applications, city guides, puzzle games, and corporate mobile applications. All these applications are widely distributed by Major US carriers (ATT, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular, Alltel etc.). We also work with major European carriers such as Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile etc. We have over 20 years of experience in mobile technologies in designing mobile applications, mobile phones programming - some of us at Mobisoft Technologies even designed cellular phones, pagers, GSM/ CDMA base stations and cellular switching equipments themselves for companies like Motorola, Nokia and Panasonic.
Brew Applications Development by Mobisoft Technologies
Mobisoft Technologies is one of the few outsourcing companies that can develop software on Brew platform. We have developed numerous applications for Brew Handsets for Verizon, Alltel, and US cellular networks. We have developed and/or ported a variety of applications for Brew such as Mapping, directions, mobile games, entertainment applications, medical applications and created advertisement supported games etc. We have licensed original ARM compilers for the development team for generating necessary mif files. In addition, we are very capable of doing mandated pre-True Brew Testing (TBT) on handsets for certification and acceptance by the carriers.

2. Qualcomm for Distribution and Billing
Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless (BREW) is a development platform allowing software developers to create applications that operate on all handsets utilizing QUALCOMM CDMA chipsets. BREW offers a number of key advantages over other software environments, like secure application licensing, integrated billing, and down-to-the-metal APIs for high-performance applications. Mobisoft Technologies' executive team has been involved with CDMA technologies from its inception in 1993, and Brew's arrival in 2001. Rapidsoft team can not only develop Brew applications, but guide through the methodology required to bring an application to a carrier for distribution.
ARM (TM) RealView Compilation Tools for BREW
We use real Brew Compiler licensed from ARM. ARM® RealView® Compilation Tools for BREW are specifically designed to target the BREW environment. This toolkit, when used with the BREW Software Development Kit, will create the final image of your BREW application that will run on all BREW enabled ARM Powered® platforms. The RealView Compilation Tools for BREW contains the code generation tools from the ARM Developer Suite™ (ADS). ARM Toolset includes:
- C and C++ compilers
- Libraries for ARM and Thumb™ instruction sets
- File conversion utilities
- Online documentation
These tools provide seamless interoperability with QUALCOMM chipsets and operating environments Please note that the RealView Compilation Tools for BREW are only available with a Node Locked license and no temporary license is supplied.
True Brew Testing (TBT)
Brew is not just a development system - but a distribution system as well. Brew is a development/deployment environment for embedded applications, abstracting hardware so one application can run on multiple devices, and offering customer-downloadable apps and content on demand. But unlike other platform, Brew applications can only be distributed through carrier controlled channels and must go through carrier/ QUALCOMM mandated third party - True Brew Testing (TBT) before deployment. That makes development for Brew tricky, expensive and very complicated. But, BREW is involved with both major domestic carriers (such as Verizon Wireless, boasting over 45 million subscribers) and overseas carriers - so efforts can be rewarding since barriers to entry are high keeping amateur developers away.

Brew is Great For Interactive Mobile Games
Brew is known for its crips graphics and clear details in the gaming applications. Below is an example of a Mobile game developed both in Brew as well as in J2ME. You can clearly see more details in the Brew games and also colors are more relistics.

2. Same Game in J2ME
Regardless of what device or platform you like - Mobisoft Technologies will be able to help you in your applications.
Brew Key Features
BREW is really more of an operating system, a layer that abstracts away hardware concerns and whose application programming interface (API) lets you quickly assemble programs out of the building blocks provided. Qualcomm built BREW on top of its own chipsets, so that the current editions run only on its Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) handsets, and over providers who offer CDMA service—which list includes national providers like Verizon and U.S. Cellular. However, Qualcomm claims on its website that other technologies like Global Standard for Mobile communication (GSM) “can and will be supported.”
What can Brew do for a mobile applications. Just look at some great features of Brew:
- User interface dialogs and controls for menus, time and date, and text entry.
- A three-dimensional graphics engine.
- Camera control for snapshots and movies.
- Address book and telephone functions.
- Web interface functions, including HTML rendering.
- Position detection using cell-network info or GPS—if the handset has the hardware.

Brew Distribution System (BDS)
Once a BREW application is developed, it needs only to be setup on the BREW Distribution System ( BDS ), where developers and operators can set the charges at will. BDS automatically bills users on their existing monthly statements, and the application developer receives a portion of this profit. Any application once developed for BREW can work just the same on any BREW handsets worldwide. So there is no need to build many versions of the same application.

Rapidsoft Services For Dealing With US Carrier Certifications, Distribution and Application Deployments
US cellular environment is very different from Europe and Asia. Unlike Asia and Europe, US phones are locked phones and any application distributed must meet carrier guidelines, content policies and securities environments. With our experience of working with major carriers, we can hold your hand through complex maze of network operator policies of each US cellular operator. Our 20+ years of experience in cellular industry differentiates us with the crowd of novice developers and companies.
Rapidsoft can guide you with distributing your applications through various networks. Because of our relationships, we can deal with content guidelines, and security requirements of each carrier, and will guide you to acquire necessary credentials as applicable from various vendors such as Verisign, Thwate etc. as needed depending upon the phone and carrier requirements. Rapidsoft uses its own signed certificates on our phones for testing.
CDMA applications, if applicable, require True Brew Testing (TBT) certification before they can be offered for distribution and installations. Rapidsoft can guide you through complex process of Qualcomm mandated process of TBT certifications through testing laboratories.
