The Team

MoSync AB is an Open Souce software company, founded in late 2004 by an international team of mobile entrepreneurs, passionate about simplifying development of mobile applications and services, opening up the mobile space to more people around the globe. The company is located in Stockholm, Sweden and has a development office in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

The vision for our flagship products, the MoSync® SDK and MoSync® Reload, and  is to make it easy, fast and cost efficient to develop and distribute mobile applications over a broad range of devices, platforms and distribution channels. Our goal is to enable developers to spend the majority of their time and effort to develop the actual applications, and less in adapting to platforms and hardware in an increasingly heterogenuous world.
