KickApps Lets You Create HTML5 Players with Drag-and-Drop Simplicity


KickApps App Studio is already known as a simple way to create Flash-based Web video players, but it’s just gained a major new functionality: the ability to turn that same content into HTML5 creations. That means you can create players that will work on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch with no coding required.

If you or someone on your team does know CSS or JavaScript, you’ll be able to fine-tune your creations after App Studio has made the app.

This move makes HTML5 accessible to more content providers, and allows them to make browser-based experiences that will work either in Flash for most users, or in HTML5 on Apple’s line of mobile devices.

“The latest release of App Studio has catapulted HTML5 forward by providing drag-and-drop authoring to an otherwise immature standard,” says Alex Blum, chief executive officer of KickApps. “For Web publishers seeking to take advantage of the combined power of HTML5 and Flash, the App Studio is an easy-to-use, integrated solution that will let them create innovative and customized media players and apps once for audiences across multiple platforms and devices.  As social video publishing continues to grow in complexity, KickApps will provide simple solutions to publishers of all sizes.”
