Open Peer iOS SDK aims to realize Jobs' vision," explains Hookflash CEO Trent Johnsen. "Developers can now use the Open Peer SDK to provide their customers with high quality voice, video calling and messaging in their own iOS apps" People just want voice, video and text communications embedded in whatever they're doing, that's what Open Peer does. What is important here is that Open Peer enables developers to integrate real time communications into their iOS and desktop applications today and use it as P2P signaling for WebRTC / RTCWEB in browsers in the near future. Seamless high quality, low cost communications between any web enabled devices regardless of operating system, Open Peer.

The company simultaneously announced the availability of Hookflash Cloud Services (HCS), hosted cloud services to support Open Peer deployments based on the Open Peer SDK.
