Logical integration

More than just an API connector
With io.Connect, the barriers between different languages are dissolved to allow integration between applications. We refer to this as “logical” integration. Unlike competing platforms, native applications in io.Connect have access to io.Connect services and APIs, including:

  • Link apps or group apps together for context sharing across user-defined channels
  • Authentication and authorization
  • Generate notifications from native applications
  • Collect user data for analysis in io.Insights

Native applications are equal participants
Simply launching native applications on your smart desktop is step one — but the support shouldn’t stop there. All applications launched by io.Connect share a customizable aesthetic—including native. With native UI components such as titlebars for Winform & WPF, JavaFX and Java Swing, your native applications match the look and feel of your HTML5 apps. They truly are equal citizens on the desktop.

  • Snap, group, and tab any windows
