Announcing Alpha Anywhere 4.6.1.3

InPlaceEditor_ListWe're pleased to announce the release of Alpha Anywhere 4.6.1.3. This release includes numerous enhancements and features for building beautiful on- and offline applications. We have also worked hard to improve the performance of the development environment and published applications. In addition, we've made security improvements across the board -- including the Classic and IIS servers -- giving you the peace of mind that your apps are secure.

Offline Capable Tabular Data Editing

You asked us for years to make it possible to edit data directly in your List layouts. With the release of Alpha Anywhere 4.6.1.3, we've delivered. We've integrated the ability to modify List records in-line with the addition of In-place Editing. No extra controls needed. Simply tell Alpha what the type of interface to show when changing a field, add the In-place Editing icons to your layout, and Alpha will handle the rest. The best part? It works offline!

Integrated Dropdown Menus

We've made it easier than ever to add interactive menus in your applications. The Control Bar now features integrated Dropdown Menus, eliminating the need to manually add menu controls to your design and making it easier to maintain your apps.

New Control: Weather Widget

We've added a new control - the Weather Widget - to your app development toolbox. Backed by the AccuWeather API, the Weather Widget can be used to add hourly forecasts into any application.

View and Edit File Directories in your iOS Apps with iOS Quick Look

We've integrated the iOS Quick Look into the Alpha WkWebView Engine (Alpha Anywhere's alternative to Apple's deprecated UIWebView.) The Quick Look Framework gives your users the ability to browse a file directory and open any document in its native viewer, including iWork documents (Pages, Numbers, Keynote), Microsoft Office documents, PDF files, images, text files, Rich-Text Format documents, CSV files, video files, audio files, and USDZ files for viewing AR content.
