It seems like things get easier and easier in the world of mobile app coding. Just recently, it was made easier to create certain types of applications. This is due to Facebook, the leader in the social media industry, releasing the secret designs they use for apps like Facebook Paper to the world at large.
Facebook released an iPhone app, through Apple’s App Store, for the world’s software engineers. The app, called Origami, is the primary design tool that Facebook uses for apps such as Facebook Paper, the news reader it released last year. It also is the design tool for popular Facebook apps Instagram, and Messenger.
Origami offers a way for designers to quickly create new mobile apps without writing a single word of computer code. It allows the user to put together hundreds of small widgets and animations into something that looks and behaves like a smartphone app. This will allow designers who do not write their own computer code build a more complex prototype of an app.
We, at Liberty Fox, always enjoy hearing when the app market grows in usability and ease, and look forward to working with our clients on building apps that will work in this foundation. If you have any questions, as always, please feel free to call us for a consultation.
