VoltBuilder now generates Icons and Splashscreens

VoltBuilder can generate icons and splash screens for your app in all the required sizes. Just supply an icon and a splash screen template, and VoltBuilder will take care of the rest. The generated images will be added to your project and your config.xml file updated. Android, iOS and Windows are supported.

Not only does this make the production of your app easier, it also reduces the upload size to VoltBuilder: you no longer have to include images of all different sizes.

When new image sizes are required by platforms, VoltBuilder will automatically add them.

Of course, if you are happy with your current images, you can keep using them.

What VoltBuilder Does

VoltBuilder turns your web apps into native executables with a simple upload. It builds executables (.apk and .ipa) for Android and iOS from web apps, as well as Windows executables (.appx). These executables can be augmented with native code plugins which extend capabilities far beyond what is possible in Web Apps and PWAs.

It works as a web service. Zip your project, upload to VoltBuilder, and download executables for Android or iOS.

In designing VoltBuilder, we had the advantage of starting with a clean slate. We were able to simplify and speed up the workflow. We also kept it framework neutral: VoltBuilder does not use any other AppStudio products, nor does it restrict the use of other frameworks. There is nothing to install.

About Us

We started in 1993 at the introduction of the Newton to fill the need for easier to use development tools. Our first product, NS Basic/Newton, was a success. When the Newton was cancelled, we introduced NS Basic/Palm. It also did well, so we added NS Basic/CE.

By 2010, we realized that JavaScript on mobile devices was getting fast enough to take seriously. Web pages in those days used a bit of JavaScript to augment the page: Could we flip things around and make JavaScript the core of web pages, driving the HTML and CSS? That resulted in AppStudio, targeting iOS and Android. It now has thousands of users in over 80 countries. More than 2 million students have learned how to program using it.

The same core group of developers has been at work on AppStudio for many years. We enjoy what we’re doing - we’ve built a loyal base of customers by treating them fairly and providing great support.
