Appery.io is the only cloud-based mobile platform with visual development tools and integrated backend services (MBaaS). With Appery.io, you can very quickly build responsive web/HTML5 apps and mobile apps, complete with UI and backend logic or data. Here are just 10 of the many reasons why our customers use Appery.io for their mobile apps.
1. Develop in the cloud
Appery.io is cloud-based, which means there is nothing to download, install or maintain, plus you can develop from anywhere. Start building your app in a few minutes by focusing on your app, not the tooling. Because your projects are in the cloud, collaborate easily with team members while leveraging role-based permissions.
2. Build complete apps fast
Build your app fast using the visual drag and drop editor and seamless integration with backend services: database, push, and server code or any REST API. With the App Creator Express you can build a complete app with a database in minutes!
3. Build once, deploy to iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and the Web
With the Appery.io cross-platform approach, reach ALL your target users quickly by deploying to all devices types from a single code base.
4. Deliver native experience
Deliver a native experience with access to native device APIs such as the camera, GPS, accelerometer and more with the popular PhoneGap framework included in every Appery.io app.
5. Easily customize
6. Integrated backend services (MBaaS)
Instantly add integrated backend services to your app: cloud database for app data or user management, push notifications to engage your users, and server code for creating server side custom app logic. There is no need to deploy or maintain any servers, you focus on your app while we maintain the infrastructure. Provide branded admin access to your app to clients and administrators through the customer console.
7. Connect with any 3rd party APIs
Quickly connect to any 3rd party REST APIs with the Appery.io visual mapping editor to easily bind services to the UI, or leverage our catalog of prebuilt API plugins.
8. Quickly test your app
Instantly test your app in the browser or use the Appery.io Mobile Tester app to test native features without the need to install the app on the device.
9. Simplified Enterprise integration
With the Appery.io Enterprise Integration Server, you can quickly connect to any enterprise data source even if it does not yet offer a REST API. Integrate Appery.io into your Continous Integration platform by using webhooks, provided for each significant event in the platform.
With support for jQuery Mobile, AngularJS, and Bootstrap, (and soon Ionic) you can develop mobile and responsive web apps rapidly while leveraging your existing skills.
