These Tweets Show the Incredible Development Speed Using Appery.io Platform

Jeremia Kimelman tweeted about a cool new API from @FCC. When I saw the tweet I decided to try and build an app in Appery.io.

About 12 minutes later, I showed him the first version of a mobile app using that API created in Appery.io. This was a brand new API to me, I have never seen it, or tried it before.

Note that the app has been updated since this tweet. You will actually see the final app.

In seven minutes, Geolocation option was added to the app. In addition to entering the latitude/longitude, you can use the device’s location to get the information.

The app is published as HTML5 mobile app: http://fips.app.appery.io/fcc.html
