Building an HTML5 Mobile App Menu System Rapidly and Easily in Alpha Anywhere vs. JQuery Mobile

A few weeks ago we compared how to create an app using Alpha Anywhere's high-level "component/coding optional" approach for building HTML5 business apps for mobile devices and the desktop with Sencha's low-level "coding required" approach.

We received a lot of positive feedback on the post, as readers were impressed with the speed and ease with which Alpha Anywhere was able to accomplish the task.

We also received numerous requests for more examples demonstrating how to create an app with Alpha Anywhere, showing how it significantly reduces the time required to build mobile applications for business, with the associated benefits of saving money and getting to market faster.

In response to the demand, we created a new video (below) that compares building a mobile menu system with Alpha Anywhere versus how to create an app with a similar menu system using JQuery Mobile.

We look forward to your comments at
