"Although the Twalky Platform was develop by a team of techies, the Innovation Movement Network itself was built by one non-tech person in less than a day. This clearly proves that anyone can have the potential to build prize-winning applications using the Twalky platform, especially when we make it available to everybody within the next few weeks" said Mr David So, Founder/CEO of inQbaby and Chief Twalker.
By using the Twalky platform, your social network becomes a platform as developers and non-developers can build apps based on the content of your network. "Once available, anyone can build applications based on the Innovation Movement Network and others can build apps on top of your network, thus creating an ecosystem of innovation apps. Already we have integrated the events social network of the Innovation Movement Network to the TwalkyEvents iphone app" Mr David So added.
