Tiggzi, our cloud-based platform for building mobile apps, has always been based on a practical just-do-it kind of approach. We were delighted to see a new book out with this kind of philosophy, too. The Bootstrapper’s Guide to the Mobile Web by Deltina Hay is a great hands-on guide that targets individual entrepreneurs and small businesses who want to get into mobile quickly. The book neatly divides up this task into mobile web development, mobile app development, and mobile promotion tactics. It’s a clearly written book full of specific examples that covers a lot of ground efficiently and quickly. Read more »

Exadel’s Tiggr Mobile Apps Builder, as you can see in the name, is usually thought of as a platform for creating complete mobile apps, but it also has a lot of usefulness as a mobile prototyping tool. In the article, “Innovative Features in Tiggr Mobile Apps Builder,” on the UX Movement blog (covering UI and user experience issues), Exadel’s Max Katz explains how to use Tiggr as a rapid prototyping tool. These are the key prototyping features detailed in the article:
- Dragging and dropping components in a visual editor
- Assigning actions to component events
- Publishing the prototype to view from anywhere at any point in the design process
- A variety of export options to move the prototype as a project to other systems
