gigApps is the app division of GigaDev. It was started after BE Mobile won the Ubuntu App Showdown in the category HTML5 apps.
Our goal is to make apps that fill the gaps or can provide just that little bit extra to improve your life. There are already some new idea's so stay tuned for more gigApps.
BE Mobile was our first app. It was created by Jelmer Prins for the Ubuntu App showdown. The beautiful logo was designed by Tim Berquin.
Say you’re in Belgium and want to get quickly from A to B with public transport? Then you’ll definitely want to use the winner of the HTML5 apps category: BE Mobile.
BE Mobile helps travellers find the best routes and times to travel within Belgium by selecting a journey and searching through a list of public transport services that can be enabled or disabled at will. In addition to that, a set of Twitter feeds for the services are provided, so that commuters and occasional travellers get informed in real time of disruptions and news for the lines they’re wanting to use.
What’s beautiful about it is the way in which using the SDK’s HTML5 components the app blends into the system exactly as a QML app. Convergence is also well-catered for with a responsive HTML design.
