Mobile software development marketplace Verious is transitioning out of beta, announcing the general availability of an online marketplace and license management services designed to simplify app project builds. Targeting independent programmers as well as technology providers, brands, enterprises and small businesses looking to roll out their own mobile solutions, the one-stop Verious marketplace touts a range of pre-built and pre-tested app components, source codes, SDKs and related technologies enabling developers to more quickly and cost-effectively create cross-platform apps optimized for operating systems including Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS and Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android.
The patent-pending Verious license management platform supports annual and lifetime component licensing, per-user licensing and an array volume-based models. Partners also can offer premium components, SDKs and pre-built apps on a free trial basis. Verious also touts a Small Business Solutions Center, enabling SMBs to customize pre-built white-label apps from a range of providers, with prices starting at $99.
In tandem with its beta exit, Verious announced a new partnership with online employment platform Elance, adding more than 25,000 mobile professionals to the Verious component developers network. Enterprise IT heads and small business owners can now leverage the Verious platform to outsource app projects to pre-screened, qualified Elance developers.
