Codiqa is the fastest mobile prototyping tool around. Learn more

Earlier this year we announced the transition from Codiqa to the new Ionic Creator, a much more powerful and capable tool that helps both developers and non-developers build native-quality apps for the app store and the mobile web.

Today, we are saying ‘Goodbye’ to Codiqa and will be shutting down the product on December 1st, 2016. It’s been a wonderful ride, and we’re proud of the tool we built with Codiqa. However, we even prouder of what we’ve built with Ionic and Ionic Creator, and we know that Creator is a much better fit for mobile app development.

For those with an active subscription, your subscription will end on the 12/1. For those with longer subscriptions, we will refund you the difference of the end date and the time left on your plan.

We thank you all for your support over the last few years and we hope you’ll jump into Creator as if nothing changed!

Today we are making the first big step towards transitioning Codiqa users to the all new Ionic Creator, our next generation tool for quickly building mobile apps and web apps that look and feel native across iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

A few months ago we announced the next big thing from the Codiqa team, and the future of mobile design and prototyping tools. We hope you take a look at that post if you would like a deeper understanding behind our motivations for creating a new product with a new mobile framework.

Today, we are turning off new user registration for Codiqa and will be directing users to Ionic Creator. If you’re an existing Codiqa customer, you can continue to log in and use the tool, though you now have access to Creator and we hope you’ll check it out as we consider it a major improvement over Codiqa.

To use your existing Codiqa account on Creator, you’ll need to Reset your Password on the Ionic Platform to generate a new password and log in.

If you have any questions or concerns about the transition, please reach out to us by clicking the help bubble on We are standing by to help Codiqa users get the most out of our next generation mobile development tool. We will have more information over email through the coming weeks.

From all of us at Codiqa and now Ionic, we thank you for your continued support and help making an awesome product over the last four years!

Earlier this year we announced that the Codiqa team and product was transitioning over to Ionic. Ionic has quickly become the most popular way to build amazing mobile apps and websites using the same web technologies you know from jQuery and jQuery Mobile. Over 1.3M Ionic apps have been built over the last year and a half, and the community has quickly rallied around it.

The Ionic team knew that, if the project was going to really take off, it needed a visual design tool to help the project grow like Codiqa did for jQuery Mobile. The team built Ionic Creator and launched an early alpha version in late 2014. Today, over 120,000 apps have been built with Creator, and we are excited to announce a totally new version that we think Codiqa users will love.

If you’ve ever wanted to password protect your Codiqa projects, test them directly on the device, use new components with a much more native feel, or invite clients and collaborators, Creator now does all of that and more.

Over the next few months we are going to start to push Codiqa users to use and create projects with Creator. We think the quality of apps that it helps you build are much higher than Codiqa, and can be used to build apps that are feature-quality for the Apple App and Google Play stores.

As a thank you to all Codiqa users for your loyalty and dedication, we are going to give you a special deal. You can use the coupon “CODIQA” for the next two weeks to upgrade to a new or higher Creator plan with a 10% discount for life.

From all of us, thank you so much for making Codiqa a success. We think you’ll love the kinds of apps  Creator enables you to build, and the polish and quality of the tool and the team behind it will help it grow to be one of your favorite tools in the app development toolbox.

Today we are incredibly excited to announce that Codiqa is joining the Ionic team.

Ionic makes it easy to build rich, native-quality mobile apps and websites using HTML5, Javascript, and AngularJS. Think jQuery Mobile, but from the future!

When we started Codiqa in 2012, we had one goal: make it easier for more people to build great mobile apps and websites.

And it worked. Codiqa developers created over 100,000 mobile apps from countries all around the world.


But we realized that there was a bigger opportunity here. Instead of just building tools on top of great frameworks like jQuery Mobile, what if there was a better technology for building mobile apps?

At the same time, the Ionic Framework had been released and quickly rose to popularity: becoming one of the top 50 most popular open source projects in the world in 2014-15, and had over 375,000 apps built on the platform in just a year.

We realized that Codiqa users would benefit immensely from the performance and native-quality of Ionic, and we made the decision to join forces.

What changes?

Today? Nothing. You can still use your Codiqa account and all your projects will be available throughout 2015. We will notify you before any major changes take place.

Your account will be migrated over to Ionic in the coming weeks and months. You may start to receive emails and other info related to Ionic.

Thank you!

Above all, we want to thank you, Codiqa customers, for making Codiqa as great of a product as it is. We wouldn’t be here without your help! Ionic is the next step on our journey to make HTML5 on mobile a top-tier solution.

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!

What features or updates would you like to see made to Codiqa? We always want to hear your feedback, and are grateful for your support.
