Udupi based mobile app development company Robosoft has raised Rs 22 crore funding from Kalaari Capital (earlier IndoUS Venture partners). The company plans to use the investment raised to move towards a full service model, strengthen its operations in new markets and for hiring new sales, design, and engineering talent.

Founded in 1996, Robosoft develops apps across iOS, Android, Windows, BlackBerry and Mac platforms. The company claims to have developed more than 1000 applications which have clocked a cumulative download of more than 100 million. It has developed apps for media brands such as IBNLive, Hindustan Times, Times Internet*, NDTV, OneIndia, Conde Nast, Business Standard, CricBuzz, and Dainik Bhaskar among others and other brands like Vodafone, One97, Nokia, Microsoft Game Studios, Reliance, Popcap Games and Pearson among others.

In 2007, the company setup its own app subsidiary called Global Delight, through which it currently offers iOS and Mac apps. Some of the titles include Voila for Mac (screen capture app), Boom for Mac (volume booster app), Camera Plus Pro (photo filter iOS app) and Game Your Video (video editing iOS app).

In the following year, it setup a mobile games subsidiary called 99Games, through which it offers games for iPhone, iPad and Android. Some of the titles include Wordsworth, Prison Mayhem, Sudoku Seasons, Empire Builder, Jim & Frank Mysteries, and Dream Star among others.

In November 2011, Robosoft had informed that it was working on localized version of Android operating system with support for Indian languages and in April 2012, it had partnered with the Bangalore based United Telecoms’ WIWO Mobiles to launch its first Indic Android phone, Wiwos Super. (Read our review here). In April 2013, Robosoft CEO Rohith Bhat had informed Medianama that it had done local Android customization for Hindi and four South Indian languages, however the handset didn’t do particularly well from a market acceptance perspective.

Besides this, Robosoft also seems to offer a hospital management system ‘Robolife’, an educational administration solution ‘RoboVidya’ and a fleet management system ‘RoboFMS’.
