JERSEY CITY, N.J., Feb. 5, 2013

JERSEY CITY, N.J., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Today  Antenna Software
announced it had an extremely successful 2012, including solid customer and
partner growth and the notable launch of AMPchroma, a platform that integrates
its award-winning, patented technologies and enables businesses to take full
control of all of their mobile initiatives. AMPchroma proved a hit with
industry analysts, and was instrumental in garnering Antenna status as a
Leader in Gartner's 2012 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development
Platforms. Antenna was also buoyed by a number of new customer wins and
product renewals in 2012, and capped off the year by rolling out the first
major update to AMPchroma since the platform's launch early in the year.

Product Innovation
The first iteration of AMPchroma was truly unique – serving as the only
product in the marketplace to empower enterprises to handle every stage of
mobile projects from a single integrated solution. Antenna also marked the
launch with the release of timely market research about the mobile business
spending and activities of US and UK enterprises, which notably found that
businesses were juggling an average of four mobile projects across the
business and were working with at least three mobile vendors to meet their
needs.

In December, Antenna enhanced AMPchroma with the addition of an open and
flexible client that enables app developers to deploy applications built with
standard languages and third-party development tools –enabling them to tap
into the robust integration, run time, security, and management capabilities
of the platform. At the same time Antenna enhanced AMP Studio, its own native
cross-platform mobile development environment, with Java support. The new and
improved AMPchroma makes it easy for enterprises to get their apps to market
quickly – while taking care of the high-grade security, integration, and
management capabilities necessary for strategic business applications.
