Buildium is in the business of building property management software - software that streamlines the tasks associated with managing real estate whether you’re a professional property management company, landlord, or homeowners association.
Buildium’s software was designed for the Web in HTML. Because property managers spend much of their time out in the field, the company needed a mobile application. Buildium wanted to capitalize on their in-house HTML technical skills and go multiplatform (IOS and Android) all at once. To accomplish this, Mobiquity designed and built an HTML5/PhoneGap solution. But a problem surfaced. The application had to view and navigate long lists—more than 4,500 records, in some cases. An HTML5/PhoneGap solution can’t handle lengthy series of data elegantly. Scrolling was jerky, time consuming and frustrating.
As a result of this innovative concept, the mobile app delivers a true native experience and allows Buildium’s clients to run through large lists without an impact on performance.

“We knew that extending Buildium to mobile devices in a way that was responsive and easy to use would be a challenge. That's why we partnered with Mobiquity. We're excited to give the scrolling innovation they delivered back to the open source community, and even more excited to deliver the Buildium app to our customers at no additional cost.”
Giving Back to the Community
One good code can lead to another . . . and another . . . and another. That’s why Mobiquity is giving the ground-breaking/creative Buildium app code to the open-source community. Listen to Matt Nunes, lead developer for the Buildium project, explain how he found the way for HTML5 apps to scroll through long lists with the same fluid experience of a native app.
