ROBLOX Brings Top Desktop Gaming Experience to iPad and iPhone

ROBLOX Mobile Lets Young Developers Share Their Game Creations on iOS Devices

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 -- ROBLOX, one of the largest user-generated content sites in videogames and the #1 entertainment site for kids according to comScore, has released its ROBLOX Mobile app, allowing users to play ROBLOX on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. The app is available in the iTunes store for free and brings a substantial subset of the ROBLOX desktop experience to mobile, including the ability for ROBLOX users to discover and play user-created levels, browse user-built models, and purchase user-crafted avatar clothing.

To date, ROBLOX builders have created approximately 9.8 million levels, with many of the most popular logging upward of 15 million plays each. ROBLOX Mobile is one of the first and most highly visible iOS apps to feature user-generated content, offering a curated selection of over 100 user-created levels. This spotlight gives ROBLOX builders a new stage to showcase their creations, and ROBLOX players a new platform to consume this content.

"Many ROBLOX builders are teenagers or younger, and ROBLOX Mobile gives them the power to launch their level on the iPad and start playing with friends in minutes," said David Baszucki, CEO. "Game enthusiasts are spending more and more time playing on tablets and phones. Now we can offer ROBLOX builders an easy way to leverage that movement and reach a new audience."

With cross-platform compatibility, ROBLOX Mobile users join game servers populated with other iOS device users and with players of the ROBLOX desktop application (which is available for free on both PC and Mac). This connects Web and mobile ROBLOX users in one shared virtual world.

ROBLOX's online community offers a productive environment for users to spend free time, as they develop programming, promotional, and entrepreneurial skills. Builders can use ROBLOX Studio, a 3D editor, to model anything they can imagine, constructing these models out of virtual blocks. These creations can then be published to the ROBLOX website and shared with other builders. Many creators have built entire virtual worlds out of components published by the ROBLOX community.

The feature-packed ROBLOX mobile app allows users to play ROBLOX games, manage their social network, access their ROBLOX inbox, interact with their ROBLOX groups, browse and purchase items from the ROBLOX catalog, customize their character, and leverage in-app purchases to buy premium subscriptions and virtual currency.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
