What is Dapper
Dapper is a powerful tool for information location, management and manipulation. It allows you to build web applications and mashups called "Dapps" using data from any HTML web page without any programming. Dapps produce an XML stream which can then be combined in your website or application. Furthermore, Dapper provides a set of tools to transform this XML stream into other formats, including RSS, email, and Google Maps. Dapps are stored on Dapper’s servers but the data is streamed from the information source. With Dapper you can create your own Dapp or use a Dapp created by another user - either as it is or as a means of producing a new Dapp.
For Whom is Dapper Intended?
Dapper is designed for content owners who wish to gather, manipulate and disseminate their content in new formats without the burden of reprogramming their systems or programming new systems. Dapper may also introduce features that enable content owners to take full control over the dissemination of their content: it will enable them to decide who is authorized to use their content, in what way, under which conditions and for what price (if at all).
We also cater to webmasters, programmers and individuals who wish to locate, aggregate, display or share information from various websites that permit this or from public domain or unprotected resources.

Except for providing an online application, the Company is not involved in the creation or use of Dapps (including any content that a Dapp relates to) by Dapper users. The Company does not endorse any Dapps created by Dapper users.
