KidoZen HTML5 Rapid Mobile App Prototyping

KidoZen has announced the release of its HTML5 App Designer visual drag-and-drop software. This software is used for building prototype (and production-ready) cross-platform HTML5 applications. The offering itself exists as a new feature enhancement to the KidoZen enterprise mobile platform — so is available for immediate use by customers.

"Key capabilities of the KidoZen HTML5 App Designer include visual drag-and-drop. [Developers can] click, move, and place components onto the screen to design, develop, and edit HTML5 mobile applications," said Jesus Rodriguez, cofounder and CEO of KidoZen.

Also here is jQuery mobile support so that programmers can choose from over 30 jQuery Mobile powered components that create production-ready apps when dropped into the screen.

Rodriguez also emphasizes easy collaboration and says that visual design tools make it easy for Line of Business (LoB) owners to build mobile app prototypes and share them with designers and developers for development.

With KidoZen HTML5 App Designer, developers "simply drag-and-drop" the jQuery Mobile powered components into the screen and build prototypes and production-ready HTML5 apps.
