HBuilder is an IDE that enables accelerated HTML5 app development. It’s the first of its kind in China and Dcloud, the team behind it, believes it’s among the best around the world.

Dcloud has figured out some ways to improve the performance of HTML5 mobile apps — closer to native apps. Also it enables better performance on low-end Android devices which account for a large part of Chinese smartphone market and will be the major market driver in the near future.

Unlike most on the market worldwide, HBuilder is for free and doesn’t plan to charge developers for any services related to app development. The team has a bigger plan.
