  • ZipApp version live for 2-3 months
    – working to revamp
    – updated website and interface
  • Builds Windows 8 and Windows Phone apps
    – JS/HTML5 or C#/XAML
  • Possibility of adding plugins – How?
    – the architecture is only in place for Windows 8 because of C#/HTML incompatability
  • Content
    – upload images into ZipApp
    – Facebook/twitter integration
