Tiggzi: Making Mobile App Building Easy
You know what they say about cloud-based applications – the sky is the limit.
A fairly new application is on the scene and promises to raise the bar on the uses of a technology called REST APIs.
Tiggzi is a cloud-based builder for HTML5 that allows the everyday Joe Citizen to build a mobile app with ease. Currently, the mobile app development is restricted to iOS and Android mobile applications. It will soon include Windows based phones and on the Blackberry. The created app would then be able to be accessed by all of Tiggzi’s supported mobile platforms, including the option to create a webpage that is mobile browser friendly.
Exadel is the creative force behind Tiggzi. They are among the innovators of cloud-based applications. With its headquarters in San Francisco, Exadel has sprouted offices in New York, Chicago, Belarus, Russia and Ukraine.

“One of the great things about Tiggzi is that there is no installation of software or use of disk space required, it’s in the cloud.” David said as he begun navigating through the Tiggzi application from his laptop.
The whole thing kicked off when he clicked on the “create an app” button. David opted to choose the visual editor. This is an excellent tool for both the tech and non-tech savvy person looking to expand access to their website or other online business.
“Here we have a choice between building a mobile app or specifically for iOS or Android. For those operating systems, we create what’s called a hybrid app that acts like a native app that can be added to App Store or the Google Market.”Continued on the next page
