Cashew now on Android!
by Benjamin, 28 Mar 2011

Kawet’s team is still in their quest to democratize the mobile app creation.
We just reached an important step for 30 million Android users around the world. You can now publish YOUR Cashew‘s app on the Android Market!




How does it work?

If you created an iPhone App with Cashew, you can create an Android one just as easily.

Just download Cashew from the Android Market and it’s exactly the same process: Enter your ID / Password and live the Android experience with your own app (ie, for the Kawet app: Kawet/43e8)

Cashew’s platform generates native Android code in addition to the native iPhone code. You control everything from only one website!


Why Android?

1. Market
Today Android confirms its progress with more than 350,000 activations per day in the world.

2. Technology
Android, as well as the iPhone, is just perfect for apps: screen size, browsing, UI/UX are almost the same.

3. Skill
Yoann Basset is a new associate of Kawet. He helped adapt Cashew to his favorite smartphone : Android.


What else?

The big bonuses for creating an Android app on Cashew are:
- No publication delay to see your app on the Android market
- No selection criteria
Within 48 hours after your payment, the app you built will be available on the Android Market.


What’s the result?

You can already download some applications made under Cashew: Kawet, StreetLove, BookLight or Le Camping, which are already available on the Android Market.

You can find every Cashew-generated apps here.


This is just a step for Kawet and Cashew, but an important one.
Keep in touch, more major news is coming! :)

London Calling for Kawet!
by Dante, 04 Feb 2011

Dear blog readers and peanuts lovers, hi!

Time is come to make this blog more lively! From now on we’ll give more “light” news regularly.

Starting with the first and more important news: we’ve integrated a new startup accelerator called Le Camping within the walls of the famous Palais Brongniart in Paris. We’ve made a small fresh update on our Kawet website, and we had a day trip in London for Seedsummit.

It was a nice opportunity for us to confront our pitch to European investors, and… have a good time in a local pub with local drinks and… peanuts of course!


Enjoy the trip!




Create your own iPhone apps with Cashew
by Benjamin, 09 Nov 2010

A few months ago Kawet went out from its pod…

We are now proud to announce the official launch of Cashew, our native iPhone app creation platform!


Logo Cashew


This platform requires no technical knowledge at all, but hey, there is more:

- Everything is native, providing apps at the top of smoothness and reactivity you can expect on an iPhone. It’s not an HTML-based generator trying to reproduce the feeling of native apps.
– Cashew is a very modular platform: you can build your apps like a LEGO® game. No templates here: build your own structure, your own sections, your own design.. Your creativity is the only limit!
– Cashew is made up of a website, used to create and manage the design and content of the apps (even once your app is available on the App Store!), and a unique iPhone test platform from where you can test instantly your apps on your iPhone!


We do not ask you any upfront payment: once your are satisfied with your app, we submit it to the App Store.
In the meantime.. Everything is free! You can play with the platform, create as many apps as you want, and test it yourselves (or by anyone else who owns an iPhone) for 30 days!

Cashew supports many features: most of the RSS feed formats, Push notifications, slideshows, YouTube and Brightcove videos, custom geolocation…
Want to try it for real, and see all these features in action? Download our iPhone test platform on the App Store, then enter the following login/pass: Kawet/43e8
Hey, you know what: this app is also available on the App Store. Same app, that you can view through our platform, or as a standalone app.

We are full of ideas for upcoming features, like custom augmented reality and 2D barcodes. Most of them will be free for everyone!
There are many possibilities hidden inside Cashew, and we are very excited to keep working on it, starting with specific adaptations for iPad, Android & Windows Phone 7.


Last thing: our platform is based on many features provided by the Three20 framework, created by Joe Hewitt and now managed by Jeff Verkoeyen. Thank you guys for your tremendous work.
We also would like to thank everyone who helped us over the past months, especially Arnaud, Benoît, Dante and Julien.. And of course Samir, tireless designer, and Mathieu, for the soundtrack created in record time. Thanks mates…

You can now sign up for an early access, and we will send you an invitation code as fast as we can.
