5 minute apps
Our current project is to provide the technical expertise behind a system to enable the average user to quickly and easily write collaborative apps directly on their device. These apps work on phones and tablets (Android and IOS), laptop and desktop (anything that runs Java) and in the browser (HTML5).
Consider the simplicity, flexibility and power of the spreadsheet but applied to apps.
For example, you can write and deploy your own simple private social network in 5 minutes.
The system simplifies sharing data between apps on different devices. It also provides easy access to web services and access to device hardware on local and remote devices. So you could easily build an app where you push a button on your device, it tells another device to take a photo and upload it to a photo sharing web service and post a comment on your social network.
Unlike traditional systems, this system is a peer system and is meant to run offline. So not having an Internet connect is not an issue. Being a peer system, as long as you can connect devices together, say using Bluetooth, the apps will share data and just work.
You can update and enhance apps while they are running and being used - there is no need to take the system offline.
