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.
