Digital Airways (DAW) is a French company founded in 1998 by four friends, Franck Lefevre, Cyril Delaroque and two brothers Nicolas and Philippe Silberzahn. DAW started out as a project in an old town house in Argentan in Normandy, France, where the four friends began to anticipate and develop an embedded browser called Wapaka . Wapaka was offering a simple but powerful user interface that allowed access to the Internet from a mobile phone.
Based on Wapaka, Digital Airways created in 2004 the Kaleido framework. Kaleido was originally a set of software components designed to create innovative User Interfaces for mobile phones. It has been used for companies such as Vodafone, Porsche Design, SAGEM, Orange, Access Japan. After this the company grew, employing an increasingly international team.
Since early 2009, the founders decided to widen the market of Kaleido to move into all the domains using User Interfaces: automotive, consumer devices, industrial products.
Digital Airways is the developer of the myNFC software.
