Company Summary

TapCanvas is a platform for building "contextual" HTML5 mobile apps without programming. These apps can be built in as little as 60 seconds using beautiful pre-made templates. AOL uses TapCanvas to create mobile conference programs; Vornado uses TapCanvas to create mobile owner's manuals that they will distribute with the fans and heaters they sell. Since these apps run on the web, they can be accessed easily by URL, QR code, or NFC chip.
