“We’re having a Block Party and everyone’s invited,” says Siebrand Dijkstra, AppMachine CEO. “With our new Pro version, we’ve added power-user blocks that address the top half of the market. The original AppMachine addressed non-developers, with ease of use, elegance and simplicity. Now any app can be literally ‘snapped’ together – for small business or big enterprise usage.”
The AppMachine platform will now be divided into 3 versions –Basic, Plus and Pro. Basic will address entry-level users looking for quick distribution of high performance HTML5 web apps. The Plus version delivers both web and native apps and adds a dozen additional app building blocks to those in Basic. Pro takes the game to a new level – allowing developers and partners to extend the platform with new private or public encapsulated blocks. These blocks can then be optionally distributed in the upcoming AppMachine Block Store.
Untill now, you could see your app evolve live in the app previewer on your smartphone. From now on, AppMachine also offers you a live simulator in the browser where you can see every change you make. You can even operate your app in the browser by clicking on the simulator. You can see here how it works.
Besides from releasing the Pro version, we also completely changed the design of our website and app designer. Read all about How AppMachine works and work on your app with our new designer. We hope you like our new look & feel!
