Gluon develops Java-based solutions. We are laser-focused on realizing the dream of ‘write once, run anywhere’ Java for a new generation of mobile devices.
Our Gluon Mobile library can massively improve time-to-market for applications, by providing APIs for modern ‘material design’ user interfaces, accessing mobile device features, connecting to web services, and synchronizing state across many devices.
Our Gluon CloudLink service provides the backend for synchronizing your application state across your deployments, regardless of the device.
