Frequently Asked Questions

CAN I CREATE FULLY CUSTOM APPLICATIONS?

Yes, you can create custom applications and even start from scratch, if you want.

CAN I CREATE NEW MOBILE-CLIENT COMPONENTS?

Appzio provides a rich set of existing mobile components which in most cases are everything a polished app would need. When some additional touch is needed or you cannot find a component that is needed, you can contact Appzio’s team.

WHAT TECHNOLOGY IS BEHIND APPZIO?

Applications are native, so the Android client is in Java and the iOS one is written in C. The backend can be created with PHP or Java Script.

CAN I TEST THE PLATFORM FOR FREE?

Yes, you can test by signing up for our free edition. It provides a quick start with the system and gives access to selected templates to jump-start your experiments. When you are ready, you can then upgrade to Professional Edition or if you find it tough, you can ask for our partner services.

IF I DO NOT HAVE DEVELOPEMENT SKILLS, CAN I STILL USE APPZIO?

Yes, you can and you will get the Appzio benefits - high quality apps built faster and in much shorter time. You can either ask Appzio for assistance with Turnkey Solution or you can use any development studio or internal team that you are used to working with.
