A demo of Angry Bots iOS app embedded using Kickfolio
Back in December we told you about a service called Kickfolio that would allow developers to demo their iOS apps directly in the browser using a new HTML5-based platform. The service converts a zipped version of an iOS app into a private test page with a completely interactive HTML5 and CSS version of the app. Today the service gets a few updates, including the ability to embed app demos onto any webpage using an iframe. Above and below you’ll find a couple embedded iOS apps that Kickfolio sent over for us to try out. Kickfolio also now supports iPad apps and is making the service much more affordable for all. This is a powerful tool for developers promoting their apps online and one I expect many to take advantage of for providing free demos to potential customers and press on their website.
Kickfolio originally had some feedback for users about pricing starting at $50 a month. Good news: today the company slashed the cheapest plan to just $9 a month (that includes 500 embed sessions). Every plan now also includes unlimited apps and the company is reopening 15-day free trials so everyone will get a chance to try the new features.
