Resco spol. s r.o.[2] is an IT company with headquarters in Bratislava, Slovakia that was founded in 1999 by Radomir Vozar, Eduard Kirchner and Marcel Saffa.[citation needed] Resco operates in the mobile IT industry with its main focus on mobile application development tools, applications and games. As of 28/02/2011 the company serves customers from 99 countries.[citation needed]

Developer division[edit]

Resco Developer Division specializes in development of user interface controls, libraries and developer tools dedicated to mobile application development.[3] All products are integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio and allow the cross-platform development of mobile client applications. The company provides technical support for all products.

Applications division[edit]

The applications division develops system utilities, multimedia applications and games.[citation needed]

History and development[edit]

The applications department is Resco’s eldest division dating to 1999.[citation needed] The developers previously focused on platforms such as Palm OS, Pocket Pc (Standard) and Pocket PC (Professional) known today as Windows Mobile. Blackberry’s RIM OS was not yet included. Applications included Resco Explorer, Resco Photo Viewer, Resco Radio and Resco Audio Recorder, which received awards from PDA journals such as Pocket PC Magazine.[4] In 2004 Resco published their first application for Nokia’s Symbian OS (Resco Photo Viewer for Symbian). The genesis and growing popularity of new mobile platforms in 2009 and 2010 has become a motivation for Resco to completely change the company's heading and strategy.[citation needed] The development on four former mobile platforms was stopped and at the end of the year 2010 Resco introduced their first application for Android and Windows Phone 7 (Resco Radio).[citation needed] All of the Resco’s applications for Windows Mobile, Symbian OS and Palm OS are still being sold.

Current focus[edit]

Currently, Resco’s application division focuses on two main smartphone mobile platforms: Android OS & Windows Phone 7.

Applications[edit]

Resco Explorer is the company's primary application.[citation needed] It works as a file explorer, task manager, network browser, ftp explorer, zipper and viewer with limited support for social networks. The first version was released in 2001.[citation needed] Now it is owned by more than 100,000 mobile users worldwide.[citation needed] The last update is dated on September 7, 2010. Resco Explorer is available for Windows Mobile and Palm OS only.

Photo Manager (formerly Photo Viewer) is the company's second application first released in 2003.[citation needed] The application works on Windows Mobile, Symbian and Palm OS devices.

Resco Radio was first released in 2006 for Windows Mobile.[citation needed] At the end of 2010 the Resco team released versions for Android and Windows Phone 7.[citation needed] The application can play internet radio streams, record, and display lyrics.

Resco Keyboard Pro is available only for Windows Mobile and replaces the device's built-in keyboard. The application is being sold mainly for companies whose employers use Windows Mobile devices for work.
