Creating a Windows Phone App in Three Quick Steps

We used Tiggzi App Builder, PhoneGap Build and very quickly installed an app on Windows Phone

Yesterday we attended mobile hackathon sponsored by Microsoft and PhoneGap. The goal was to build a PhoneGap app and install in on Windows Phone. We used Tiggzi App Builder, PhoneGap Build and very quickly installed an app on Windows Phone.

Thanks to @jccim for inviting us and giving us a brand new Windows Phone for testing.

Step 1.

Build an HTML5/jQuery Mobile app in Tiggzi Mobile App Builder:

Step 2.

Export the app as HTML/JavaScript/CSS:

We will be adding Windows Phone support to Tiggzi in May (first source code export, followed by binary build).

Step 3.

Upload the app to PhoneGap Build, download the Windows Phone version:

You are done!
