    Native UX, cross-platform development

    Developing cross-platform with native user experience: develop and deploy mobile apps for iOS and Android and web solutions, providing your customers the same user experience as native applications, both on the web and on devices, in terms of speed, performance, style, behavior, and offline functioning, without compromise. Offer much more without losing opportunities in a market that is becoming increasingly demanding.

  • The best of open source

    The best of open source

    All the best of open source: because all the libraries and the framework of Instant Developer Cloud are open source, but not only that... You can also make maximum use of the most useful open source software for your needs, integrating it easily and using it as if it were a native part of the development environment. Make your contribution to the community and benefit from the contributions of other members. And with Instant Developer Cloud, gain an advantage that open source doesn't offer: the certainty of relying on a high-level professional support service.

  • Designed for the Cloud

    Designed for the Cloud

    In the Cloud, designed for the Cloud: we configure the design-time environment for you. Simply sign in and you're ready to program in the cloud-native IDE, even from mobile devices. And for all projects that demand agility, continuous delivery, and frequent iterations, when you want your team to be free to focus on something more productive that setting up and managing an application environment, you know that you can count on our preconfigured options for deployment in the cloud.

  • Real time by design

    Real time by design

    Real-time performance for the Internet of Things: push technologies are integrated transparently in every application you develop, which therefore becomes real-time by design, reaching never-before-seen levels of speed and responsiveness on the web, without having to do any additional work. And when the software has to manage vast and continuous data flows, these features become simply indispensable.

  • Collaboration by the team and in the apps

    Collaboration by the team and in the apps

    The collaborative features you expect for your team, but that you have yet to find, with audio and video interactions fully integrated into the IDE. Everyone, including your customers, can participate in all phases of the project, thus improving agility, productivity, and efficiency. And you can also transparently integrate audio, video, and social interactions in your own applications, offering your customers new opportunities with the maximum simplicity.

  • All databases

    All databases

    Connect to any back end and database: with Instant Developer Cloud, you can create your back end and your database, but if your applications need to interface with a system that is already available, simply integrate it using Web APIs. And if the server is in the cloud but you want your database to remain on-premises, the solution is Cloud Connector, the ad-hoc system included in Instant Developer Cloud.

  • Based on web standards

    Based on web standards

    Leverage your existing know-how: programming with Instant Developer Cloud is based on standard technologies such as JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS, along with many productivity-enhancing features. This means that developers can work in a familiar environment with the maximum efficiency from the start, making it easy and economical to find developers ready to join your team.

  • Automated load testing

    Automated load testing

    You yourself, and not your users, are the first to know how your applications work: Instant Developer Cloud integrates a cutting-edge system of automated load testing to simulate the load on your application with varying transaction volumes. So you can be sure that you are always deploying your software on the most suitable hardware to ensure it performs at its best. And in addition to making your users happy with the high performance of your applications, you will never spend more than necessary for deployment infrastructure.

  • Get all of this for free

    Get all of this for free

    We all know how important it is to keep costs in check: so use of the development environment is completely free of charge for people working solo and is extremely convenient for teams. You never pay more than you need to, because you are not charged until you start to deploy your applications, and at this point you will have already started to sell them to your customers. And we give you all the tools to keep costs under control, so with your projects, you always win. As another alternative, you can even spend nothing, neither for development nor for deployment, if you create open source projects or if for your proprietary projects you select our detachment option.

  • No more lock-in

    No more lock-in

    You keep the keys to your own software: even though you are working in a completely managed environment, at any point you can decide, without incurring any cost, to remove your source code and maintain it with other tools: the software is and always remains your own!

  • Offline becomes simple

    Offline becomes simple

    Online and offline, what's the difference? No difference for us, and also for you. You can simply decide that you want your app to work in both online and offline modes, and use the integrated synchronization framework. It is really that simple to offer your customers apps that can work even with no connectivity, so they can use them to the fullest under any conditions.

  • Scalability without limits

    Scalability without limits

    Create robust solutions that are event-driven by design, and therefore able to support millions of concurrent transactions, connecting together any type and any number of devices and users.

  • On the app stores with one click

    On the app stores with one click

    The fastest road to the app stores: thanks to Instant Developer's cloud build server you can compile and publish on the Apple Store and Google Play directly from your browser. And to send iOS apps to the App Store there is no need to be an expert on app publishing or to own a Mac. Do it all with one click.

  • New technologies without complications

    New technologies without complications

    The invisible revolution: with Instant Developer Cloud you get the benefits of new standards like Node.js, WebSockets, and WebRTC, without having to deal with the complexity. In fact, it only requires web programming ability to take control of these and many other cutting-edge technologies. For example, to allow you to use Node.js without worrying about managing the difficulties of asynchronous programming, thus avoiding the notorious callback hell, we have devised a system of non-blocking synchronous programming.

  • Continuous integration

    Continuous integration

    Continuous integration, integrated: Instant Developer Cloud includes continuous integration features, so that every time you deploy your software, everything works at its best, even when your team is made up of many developers working simultaneously. A system of dependency control that allows automatic refactoring with each change, functional testing, automated compiling and deployment, and a teamwork system designed to ensure maximum efficiency even in the case of frequent branches: these are just some of the features that simplify the entire deployment process.

  • Analytics for everything

    Analytics for everything

    Collect any type of analytic data: you already know that there is no way to see exactly how your apps will work on each of the thousands of combinations of devices/operating systems before publishing them. This makes it essential to have a system for collection of highly granular and reliable analytic data. Instant Developer Cloud records detailed analytics for you on user actions and application responses, so you can use them to your advantage for prototyping, testing, and improvement of your applications.

Deployment

Open source
Free
forever

Mode reserved to public projects (open source).

This mode allows you to deploy your software where you want and to continue to develop it with Instant Developer Cloud. Download the source code of your project free of charge and publish your applications on your public or private cloud or on-premises servers. You can also download the source code of your mobile apps free of charge to publish them on the app stores. Or, still free of charge, you can publish your mobile apps in an even easier way: from your browser with one click through our build server. And the software you deploy in the ways listed above is completely runtime free.

Managed
Mobile
From € 9.90/month
Web
From € 19/month

Mode for private and public (open source) projects.

Publish and update your mobile apps on the app stores from your browser with one click. And, again with one click, publish your web applications and back-end servers in the Instant Developer cloud or on any public or private cloud, as you choose.

Here are some examples.

For a mobile business app used by up to 1000 different devices during one month, the monthly cost is just €9.90. And when your customer asks for many apps? You can publish all the apps you want for the same customer from just €49 per month (when the apps are used by up to 1000 devices during one month).

For a complete SaaS ERP solution used by a small company, we estimate a medium-sized server would be needed, with a monthly cost of just €99.

But each application is different, and if you want to be sure to always select the right size for you, you can use our automated load testing. It is a cutting-edge system that simulates the load on your application with varying transaction volumes. So you can always deploy your software on the most suitable hardware and will never spend more than necessary.

Self-managed
Detachment option
Free
Loyalty option
€ 9.90/day worked

Mode for private projects (not open source).

Download the source code of your project and publish your applications on your public or private cloud or on-premises servers. You can also download the source code of your apps to publish them on the app stores.

And from the beginning of the project, you always have complete control over download costs, which are calculated per project based on the number of days worked by each developer, at a fixed rate of €9.90 per day.

You don't pay anything the first time you download the code of a project, so you can do all the testing you want with zero cost, continuing to develop your project with Instant Developer Cloud.

Then, beginning with the second download, you decide whether you want to pay for the number of days worked up to that point (Loyalty option). For each subsequent download, with the Loyalty option, you will be charged only for any days still not paid for. This way, you can continue to develop your project with Instant Developer Cloud.

Alternatively, you can download free of charge (i.e., without paying for any days not yet charged) the code at any time. In this case (Detachment option) the project is removed from Instant Developer Cloud, and if you want, you can continue to develop it with other tools. You can even decide in the future to place it back on Instant Developer Cloud for a fee, under the Loyalty option.

How much would it cost for the first version of a mobile app for iOS and Android, with 10 views, integrated with your data via existing Web APIs? No more than 200 euro! (hypothetical estimate based on the experience of our customers).
