Codiqa is the fastest mobile prototyping tool around. Learn more

codiqa+salesforce

Last week we added the ability to integrate your Salesforce data right into your Codiqa projects. Just go to your AddOns page to add Salesforce to your projects!

This is a part of our growing plan to make it easy to integrate backend services and external products directly into your apps, without you ever having to run your own servers.

Along with the Salesforce integration, we’ve also added a great tutorial on building a contact list management app with Salesforce. You can list, edit, and create new contacts, all from within Codiqa!

Look forward to more updates that make it easier than ever to add powerful logic and behavior to your apps in Codiqa. And as always, please leave us comments if you have any feedback or need help!

Next week we will be announcing new pricing for Codiqa, along with a completely redesigned website.

The last six months have been really big for us at Codiqa. We’ve grown our team from 2 to 8, and we are now serving more app creators than ever before.

As we move forward on our vision to make Codiqa the best tool for building any kind of mobile app or mobile website, we’ve realized our pricing could be better. We have a lot of interesting stuff in the pipeline and we want to make sure our pricing can handle all the new things we are adding, and work for everyone.

Starting next week, our basic plan will move from $24/mo to $39/mo, with discounts for 6 month and yearly pricing. All other plans will be adjusted up similarly.

All current subscribers will be grandfathered in, of course. But that means if you are on the fence about upgrading, act fast to make sure you grab the current prices!

Starting next Monday, our new pricing will be active. Don’t miss out on the current prices!

Adam Bradley

Introducing, Adam

Today, I’m extremely delighted to announce Adam Bradley as the newest member of our Codiqa product/development team. Adam is straight out of Wisconsin, born and raised. He is a proud US Veteran, the founder of CDNConnect, and one heck of a software developer.

We’ve set a high bar for bringing on new team members, and we always put culture first.  Adam was a shoo-in, and a perfect example of the type of person we want hanging out with us each day.

How we got to know Adam

About two years ago, Max and I were invited to share our idea for Codiqa at a local Madison JavaScript meetup called MadJS (run by our friend, Eric Sorenson). Adam just so happened to be at the same meet up. He pulled us aside afterward to share his excitement about our vision for Codiqa, as well as offer some feedback on how we could improve it. We loved that.

Several months later, Max had put together an informal weekly meetup where local entrepreneurs could share and receive feedback on their business ventures. We started meeting a ton of interesting people and startups each week.

All of the sudden, Adam popped back into our lives again. He joined the weekly meetup because he was building CDNConnect. Over the next year and half, we got to know Adam well. We saw first hand his drive, his dedication, and his passion for building useful products that people love. We also received an immense amount of valuable feedback from Adam on how we could improve Codiqa. In fact, Adam was helping shape Codiqa long before he joined the team!

How Adam joined the team

In January 2012, we temporarily relocated the company to Texas for three months while we took part in the Techstars program there. When we returned back home to Wisconsin in late April 2013, we were on the lookout for a few new team members. Adam got in touch. He was interested in joining the team, and we were thrilled to offer him a position working closely with developing and improving Codiqa. The rest, as they say, is history.

Welcome, Adam!

As most of our users know by now, our team has grown and we have started pushing to add some features that will continue to improve the Codiqa experience.  One feature that has long been requested is an HTML component, and we are thrilled to announce that it is now live.

Within Codiqa you can now enter your own custom HTML, CSS and JavaScript directly within the editor. Just like with all the other components, simply drag and drop the “HTML” icon into your page. Once placed or highlighted, to the right of the app you can easily enter your own custom markup.

The framework beneath Codiqa is jQuery Mobile, which has certain guidelines in how HTML should be constructed so that it can optimize your webpages for various devices. Because of jQuery Mobile’s required structure, allowing unrestricted HTML editing could easily break the necessary markup.

The great news is that with the HTML component you will not have to worry about breaking your web pages, and whatever markup you insert stays confined within that component instance. Additionally, you can easily add multiple HTML components and move them area even after placing them.

Another great addition is the ability to include JavaScript (both internal and external) directly within the HTML component. For example, you can easily embed third party scripts, such as Twitter’s tweet embed:

Could not embed GitHub Gist 6030524: Not Found

When in “Build” mode the JavaScript will not execute. However, when in “Test” mode the JavaScript will execute the same as it would on a mobile device.

Please give it a shot and let us know how it goes!

jQuery Mobile Panel

Hey friends!

Ben here. Every day we receive a ton of requests for new components. Trust me when I say this: we hear you loud and clear, and we’re working hard to add more of them. That being said, there’s been one component request that has stood out among others in frequency. Well, today I’m excited to announce that we *finally* added that component: the Panel! And, we’re rather confident you’ll love it, too. Here’s how it works:

Drag and drop the Panel component icon onto your phone screen from the components sidebar on the left. You’ll notice that it’s actually a button, because the Panel’s content is hidden by default and can only be accessed when the button is triggered. In the Properties sidebar on the right, there will be an “Items” section where you add your list content. Fill it up with whatever navigation you like, and then go into Test Mode to try it out. That’s it! Simple, huh? If you want to learn more about how the Panel works, head on over to jQuery Mobile’s demo and examples.

That’s all for today. I’ll be writing about more updates we’ve made this week, so stay tuned!

And as always, we want to know what you think. Do you like the new Panel component? How can we make it better, or what other components would you like to see added next? Let us know!
