How the idea for this product came was pretty interesting. During our bootstrapping days we were doing lot of service work to keep the lights on. We had done some Mobile App development for Celebrities. During those time i.e few months ago. I had gone to a very dear friend of Mine Akash Gupta who is a Music Composer, we often discuss technology together. He was launching his new album. He showed me an Android App which he had developed from a site which provided a Wizard, but he received the App Offline. I thought that maybe this could be generated on the fly.
HTML5 could be definitely done and APK Generation on the fly will have to be tried out. The user experience of building the App, very much like a PowerPoint presentation. It can be for an event, launch, for an artist to show case his work, celebrity, shop owner, personal app or even a corporate who wants a mobile presence or a Musician who just wants to share his audios and videos. Giving it to a service company meant that it would cost the person who wants to get the app developed thousands of dollars per device. Our discussion stayed with me …..That night post the party I went back and started working on the prototype to create a mobile App on the fly builder, by morning 7’O Clock the prototype was ready and so was our product born. Post that it went into production and took us quite a while to create a wizard and add management features over that. Now its live.
Using AppClay our On the Fly HTML5 and Native Android App Builder anybody who does not have any technical knowledge or coding experience can create a mobile app on the fly. At the end of the wizard if you have opted for an Android Native App you will get a APK file if you had opted for HTML5 your receive a link.
