My Experience Developing for Google Glass using Cordova

Xprtly – Extreme Coolness

Something cool happened today…something extremely cool.  Xprtly was released into public beta.

What in the heck is Xprtly?  The best way to describe it is a cloud-based support platform, with a mobile application and a web interface for administration.  The idea is to connect users with support personnel who can respond to issues as they arise.  Xprtly also allows for data collection of both user and support personnel behavior, plus analytics (more...)
