Tiggr Lets You Create Mobile Apps in Minutes [Video]

My interview with David Spark during Mobilize conference in San Francisco, Sept 26-27, 2011.

Aren’t you glad you don’t have to program in assembly code?

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to do any programming at all?

At the GigaOM Mobilize conference in San Francisco I saw a demo of Tiggr, a Web-based mobile app builder for both Web-based and native mobile apps, created by Exadel.

Exadel Senior Systems Engineer Max Katz walked me through the five-step process of creating a mobile app. In the demo he showed me, he created a Twitter search app.

  1. Prototype and build the UI with jQuery mobile components. For example, drag and drop the buttons and the windows with all the content into the phone’s display.
  2. Define the service and connect the UI to the Twitter REST API.
  3. Put the app all together with events and actions. For example, when a certain button is clicked you want to invoke a specific service.
  4. Test the app at any stage within the browser or phone.
  5. Export the app as either source code and continue working outside. Or if you’re finished you can retrieve the binary for Android and iOS and upload it to the respective app market.
    Pretty impressive.

This video is the sped up version, but I saw him build the app in just five minutes.

  1. Creating native and HTML5 apps is no longer a problem. Due to user friendly and flexible online app building platforms it is really easy to get an app in the Appstore and Google Play even if you have no programming skills. Among the services I used myself I would recommend Snappii as their opportunities in mobile app development seem to be endless and can suit any business needs.
