KickApps has released KickApps App Studio, its next generation of its drag-and-drop Widget and Video Player authoring solution. Users of the web-based KickApps App Studio can create highly customized embeddable Flash applications with drag-and-drop ease, including the ability to integrate best-of-breed third party applications, content and web services. The KickApps Widget and Player authoring tool already produces over 90 million app views per month.
Meebo and Yahoo! Maps represent the first third-party embeddable applications distributed via the KickApps platform. Meebo Rooms are available now and Meebo Community IM will be integrated into the KickApps Platform in the near future.
The KickApps App Studio offers tremendous opportunity for web publishers of all sizes to very efficiently create interactive applications that can be embedded on any page of their website or shared virally across the web. With a Photoshop-like interface, users simply drag applications and components (e.g. video players, photo slideshows, RSS feeds, chat, member lists, interactive ad units, rooms and maps) onto the canvas to customize every aspect of the appearance and functionality.
