Alpha Anywhere Released

Alpha Anywhere Mobile App Development PlatformA new release is available for Alpha Anywhere. Though this release is not considered a major release given that it is coming soon after the previous release, Alpha Anywhere has several important new features to increase productivity and further help developers build secure applications.

Encrypt your Data

Encrypt data in your database using the new field encryption for the Grid component and List control. Data will be encrypted before stored in the table, giving you an added layer of protection. Data encryption is available for any existing table.

More Power for the Super User

Hand-off control over who has access in your tabbed interface applications with the TabbedUI component's new ability to change security groups for menu buttons at runtime. Before Alpha Anywhere, you could only set permissions during design. Changing group access required publishing an application update. With the new option to Store security groups in a database, you can give users the power to change security permissions without waiting for a new release.

Other Enhancements

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a regression that caused an error publishing a UX component with color tweaks but no sub-theme or CSS tweaks.
  • Fixed a regression rendering List controls with a Kanban layout.

The Alpha platform is the only unified mobile and web app development and deployment environment with distinct “no-code” and “low-code” components. Using the Alpha TransForm no-code product, business users and developers can take full advantage of all the capabilities of the smartphone to turn any form into a mobile app in minutes, and power users can add advanced app functionality with Alpha TransForm's built-in programming language. IT developers can use the Alpha Anywhere low-code environment to develop complex web or mobile business apps from scratch, integrate data with existing systems of record and workflows (including data collected via Alpha TransForm), and add additional security or authentication requirements to protect corporate data.
