Appy Pie opens new office in Virginia

California based Appy Pie has opened an office in Virginia, and has hired Joel Perez to head it, the company said.

Joel comes with close to five years of experience in software sales, IT consulting and project management. Prior to joining Appy Pie, he was employed with Brainware, inc.

App Pie´s app builder enables users to design a professional-looking app without writing code by selecting a theme from the gallery, dragging and dropping desired elements such as text, images and videos and then publishing the app to Google Play and the iTunes app store.

The company said the Virginia branch provides an opportunity to tap an entirely new small business market.

Appy Pie is a free cloud-based DIY mobile app builder that allows users without programming skills to create an app for Android, iOS and Windows.
