Today is a great day. We are excited that the iOS prototyping and mockup app AppCooker will join Pidoco and strengthen our offering. The acquisition was announced this weekend at the UXcamp Europe conference, one of the largest BarCamps for user experience professionals with 500+ active participants from around the world that has been taking place in Berlin since 2009.
AppCooker is a professional prototyping app for the iPad®, which enables software designers and developers to create mockups of future iOS and watchOS® apps directly on the iPad® for presentation and pre-development testing purposes. The app was developed by Hot Apps Factory, a mobile software company based on the French Riviera, which specializes in the preproduction process of making beautiful iPhone® and iPad® applications.
The takeover is part of our vision to allow all stakeholders of the app design process to participate in prototyping activities across devices. We believe that existing as well as new users will benefit significantly from the acquisition. AppCooker will remain available as a stand-alone app to users via the Apple App Store® and will also serve as a basis for new products.
