Create HTML pages in 5 minutes

In this section we use IoTize Studio to modify the demo app and:

  • Publish HTML pages (5 mins). These HTML pages will be accessible on the generic Tap Manager mobile app (available for both Android and iOS).
  • Generate an APK app (15 mins). This 'real Android APK' will be branded under your own company name. The project files could be then used to generate also a 'real iOS IPA'.

We assume you followed the quickstart on the packaging and observed how the behaviour of the app changes.

Note: The NFC-BLE Primer (ref: TnL-PRIMER-NB) guide is here.
