Alpha Anywhere Workshop: Building an Offline-capable App
Wednesday August 5, 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
The Only Platform That Has Built-in Offline Support with No Added Cost or Time
According to Forrester Research's recent report "The Offline Mobile Challenge," offline capability will be "a consideration for nearly every future modern application"
and is "often the most important and difficult mobile feature" to implement.
But, "Adding offline capabilities to an app can more than triple its development complexity [and cost]” according to Wired Magazine (June 2014)—unless you use Alpha Anywhere. Alpha Anywhere is the only platform in which robust transactional offline support is built directly in. The apps you build in Alpha Anywhere can be built to work smoothly offline with no incremental cost or time.
The new release of Alpha Anywhere "supports a very robust solution for HTML5 implementations" needing offline.
- Forrester Research September 2014 report, "The Offline Mobile Challenge"
(The report is available to Forrester subscribers or for purchase at www.Forrester.com)
Of the 3 levels for offline support defined by Forester, Alpha supports the highest one, "Complete Transactional Synchronization with Conflict Resolution," and it does this without adding any additional time or cost to your development project.
Plus Offline capable apps are faster - since there is no server lag time when working locally, and cost less, since the devices you use don't require cellular connection or a data plan.
See an example of offline support in this 90 second video.

Responsive, Cross-Platform HTML5 Business Applications with the User Experience of Native Apps
Alpha Anywhere gives you the look, feel, and performance
of native applications, but since they are created with HTML5, the
applications can be run on virtually any smart phone, tablet, laptop,
or desktop. Responsive design allows your app to adjust to the available
performance that you could traditionally only get from a native application.
And because one-touch support for PhoneGap Build is included - your applications can take easily
advantage of device hardware, like the camera, accelerometer, and GPS.
Get all of the advantages of natively programmed applications,
in far less time. Build once. Run anywhere.
