Today, we are pleased to announce Codiqa for Desktop.
Since we launched Codiqa over two years ago, we’ve seen it being used by all sorts of people and organizations large and small for many things: quick mobile app prototyping, internal business optimization, company-wide app collaboration, and even as a tool for learning mobile development.
Until today, creating with Codiqa was only possible with an internet connection, browser, and monthly subscription. And although this form of using Codiqa comes with it’s own benefits, we can’t say there aren’t some equally great reasons to offer a desktop client to go alongside it. Not to mention it’s been one of the most highly requested features since day one!
With today’s release, it’s now possible for users to purchase a one-time, standalone desktop license of Codiqa and create as many apps as they please (plus, upgrades are free!)
So what does the Desktop app offer?
All of the same features you get with our web client! However, there are some extra native-specific benefits highlighted below:
- Simplified design. Check it out. We removed a lot of extraneous visual clutter, and cleaned up the interface such that it gets out of your way while building.
- Everything is local. No more internet connection needed to access your apps and data. Everything is saved locally on your computer. Go ahead, build an app on a plane, or store your most sensitive projects on your internal network.
- Latest version of jQuery Mobile. Codiqa for Desktop comes with jQuery Mobile 1.4, the latest public version. Although our web client is next in line for this update, the Desktop version is already there and ready to go!
- One-time purchase. This is a big one. Many users have told us they would prefer a pay-per-project style of billing instead of a monthly subscription. This makes a lot of sense for small business and agencies who may not have consistent work coming in. Starting at $79, it’s now possible to purchase a one-time license of Codiqa and create an unlimited amount apps. Plus, all upgrades are free.
So go head and take Codiqa for Desktop for a spin! We think you’ll love how simple, straightforward, and easy-to-use it is. Check it out:
More to come
Thanks to all the beta testers who helped us create this tool. You rock! We plan to continue improving both versions of Codiqa, and we want your help in doing so!
