About Buzztouch

Buzztouch is an open source "app engine" that powers tens of thousands of iPhone, iPad and Android applications. Buzztouch is used in conjunction with the iOS and Android software developer kits (SDK's).

The Buzztouch Core (iOS and Android) serves as the foundation for any mobile project. This well tested and extendable project saves developers time and increases the quality of their mobile apps. All source files included in project downloads are delivered in plain text for maximum hack-ability.

The Buzztouch Control Panel is open source web based software that is used to administer mobile apps created using Buzztouch. BtCentral helps developers create mobile applications ("apps") and manage dynamic content within existing apps. The easy to use interface is accessed at buzztouch.com or in a self-hosted environment.

Buzztouch is a Subscription site but all are welcome to a FREE TRIAL. We think that becoming a paid subscriber is the best way to take full advantage of the software, the community, and the goodness that comes with regular feature additions. Buzztouch has helped more than 250,000 people worldwide.

Background Information

Buzztouch was founded in 2009 by David Book while enrolled in the Information Technology and Communication Design bachelor degree program at California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB). David's submission of Buzztouch won the universities Outstanding Integrated Capstone Award. David was already a veteran software developer and database engineer, and was returning to school to pursue a design degree. He and his longtime business partner Stephen Mercurio introduced Buzztouch to the public later that year.


Members of the Buzztouch community spend lots of time helping each other, helping newcomers, and helping David make improvements. We appreciate this a great deal. If you're interested in getting involved and want to help Buzztouch in a more meaningful way, don't hesitate to contact us. We are especially thankful to the Buzztouch Top 25 and look forward to seeing your name in the forums, at an event, or better yet... in the App Store or Google Play Market.
