Magically turn ideas into apps.

Blank is radical new way of constructing apps. Just describe what you need your app to do. Your wishes are then magically translated into a real app with a spectacular UX. Powerful apps can be created in minutes by anyone.

We're bringing the power of programming to the masses.

Imagine the problems that would be solved if everyone gained the skills of a world-class app developer overnight. Blank makes this possible through a new graphical programming paradigm that we call Insight Oriented Programming. It's easier to use than a spreadsheet, but it’s as powerful as traditional code.

Iterate at the speed of thought.

Blank technology will change the face of software. Month-long development processes can be shortened to minutes. When equipped with Blank, the tech piece moves as fast as the world around you.

World-class design. Without designers.

A unique way of gathering requirements allows the optimal navigational structure, animations, transitions, and color theme to be determined automatically. Blank's innovative aesthetic algorithms ensure that each and every app it generates is mathematically guaranteed to look fantastic.

Compose apps from a market of features.

Blank apps are made up entirely of modular features. A scrollable list of professional athletes. A button that orders a pizza from the nearest pizzeria. A general purpose commenting widget. You get the idea.

When your app goes live, these features are sent to the Blank network separately. This way, apps can be composed of the new features you've created, and also, any other features that have been made public on the Blank network. You can incorporate features from the network, customize them, and redistribute your customized version back to the network. Customizable smart contracts ensure that each app owner pays for the resources their app consumes.

Create user-modifiable apps.

Strange things are possible when everybody is more-or-less equipped with unlimited programming power. Blank apps are so easy to build and customize, even your end users can modify their copy of your app. They can add special features just for them. It's like open source on steriods.

Blank's underlying inter-app protocol ensures that when someone borrows or augments functionality in your app, their version of your app stays compatible with yours. It's win-win.
