New features in Tiggzi December release.
Two tutorials that show how to build a search mobile app connected to Tiggzi backend services:
- Building a Mobile Search App with Tiggzi Database
- Building a Mobile Search App with Tiggzi Database, Part 2 (using regular expression)
Do keep in mind, it is still a beta (early beta) so some features will not work or not yet implemented (from the Flash builder). But do give it a try (there is always the Free plan) and let us know what you think, we really want to hear your feedback.
To create an app in the new builder, click Create more options:
Then check Open in new (beta) app builder option:

Also, do keep in mind:
- Any already existing projects will only open in the current Flash builder.
- Any new projects, once created in the new builder, will only open in the new builder.
Mobile Camp Los Angeles on October 18 is a super awesome event in Los Angeles area. It’s a one day event organized by user groups in the Los Angeles area and is packed with amazing speakers and sessions.
I will be there, and will be doing a talk on cloud-based Tiggzi app platform. I will show how to build a real HTML5 mobile app connected 3rd party REST APIs, plus mobile backend services. Attendees will be able to test the app as it’s being built!
Register for this event.
This special edition of AT&T Mobile App Hackathon, an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program and AT&T Aspire in coordination with NYC Digital and the Mayor’s Interagency Task Force on Truancy, Chronic Absenteeism & School Engagement, is focused on building the next great app to help combat truancy. Attendees are encouraged to come regardless of whether they already have a team to work with or nothing other than a great idea. Our hackathon will introduce you to the latest cutting edge tools to help deploy your own app with a website backend, fully hosted in the cloud.
AT&T hackathons are awesome events. Sign up, have fun and build a cool mobile app. With Tiggzi, you will be able to build your app even faster. Anyone who wants to use Tiggzi will get 2 months Pro plan. We’ll have prizes as well. 1st place – 12 months Pro plan, 2nd and 3rd places – 6 months Pro plans.
Tiggzi mobile app platform:
Visual UI builder running in the browser (think cloud IDE).
HTML5, JS, CSS, jQuery Mobile, PhoneGap
That app that you build in Tiggzi is an HTML5/jQuery Mobile app. You can also easily use PhoneGap API to access device features and package (build) the app for Android, and iOS.
3rd party REST API services
Quickly use any 3rd party REST API in your app. Tiggzi alos provides plug-ins (pre-packaged API services and pages) to make it even faster to add functionality to an app.
Tiggzi Backend Services provides a cloud database for storing app data. The database comes with User management, File Management and a very awesome web console. There is also HTML5 app hosting. We are working on Push, Serveri-side code, and Analytics features.
I have two talks at JavaOne this year. One is a BOF and one is a general conference session. I won’t be showing any slides, in both sessions I will show how to build a real mobile app connected to cloud REST APIs. Everyone will be able to test the app. Hope to see you there.
Building Mobile Apps with HTML5 and Java (BOF)
Tuesday, Oct 2, 4:30 PM – 5:15 PM – Parc 55 – Mission
Building HTML5 Mobile Apps with Cloud Services (Conference session)
Wednesday, Oct 3, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM – Hilton San Francisco – Golden Gate 3/4/5
Mobile app development is moving toward a client/cloud paradigm, including a thin client built with HTML5 plus PhoneGap or Java for accessing native device features and connected to cloud services via REST APIs. In this interactive session, attendees will learn how to build an HTML5 mobile app with REST APIs, using the Tiggzi cloud-based mobile app builder, and then package it as a Java mobile app for iOS. Attendees will be able to test the app as it is being built.
This week Tiggzi app platform upgraded to use PhoneGap 2.0. This means that every existing and new app will now use the PhoneGap version 2.0.
Not only can you use PhoneGap API when building an app, but you can also use Tiggzi to build Android and iOS apps with a single click:
