Has anyone played with icenium.com
I got a trial account and was trying to get some games to work in it, with little luck so far. I haven't tried the phonegap or cocoon exports yet. Was curious if anyone had tried it.
This looks interesting... Does it hardware acellerate?
Sigh, one more :O

That's why HTML5 failed to deliver mobile gaming, support tools to give better peformance with CocoonJS, appMobi, then a new challenge comes is Icenium.
but it seems to be more appcentric and less game oriented.
Better only stick to one or two.
IMHO cocoonJS seems to be the most promising wrapper. Can't wait from something more from ludei.
Im bothered about Apple rejected CocoonJS launcher because these stupid apple employers had no idea what is CocooJS, they were checking it and it doesn't do nothing, they labeled it useless and rejected. Ludei is working hard to get approved its app.
We don't really have time to support every single framework out there. Also, if it doesn't specifically mention games, it's probably just a wrapper around the default browser like PhoneGap is - which means you're stuck with all the performance problems of PhoneGap too.
Looks like they are using phone gap and kendo ui to do things. But I agree that cocoon looks best so far.
What I read about AppGyver is that they are taking HTML5 apps closer to native feel. I don't know about the performance, but this is a solution to keep an eye on.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Most of these products are the same. They have templates to run a native browser control and then display local files with some custom CSS.
My problem with most of these is that they are all focused on the look and feel of the platform and how buttons display etc.
What we are looking for are companies that focus on improving GPU integration and canvas performance tuning.
So much wrappers/adapters like these only indicate that HTML5 is failling hard on mobile, specially for games. I can't see it any other way.
But it?s getting better:
I think there?s a lot of reasons to be optmistic: Chrome is now the default browser with Android 4.1, the new mobile safari seens to be fast as hell and with the Nexus 7 I think there will be a lot of new devices with fast processors in the low budget market.
Yeah at last things are moving....
