From InfoWorld:

A low-code, rapid, wizard-driven, end-to-end builder with a Windows-based IDE, Alpha Anywhere supports many databases and targets Web, mobile (iOS, Android, and Windows Phone), and desktop applications. HTML apps can be built using a component-based designer and responsively adapt to screen sizes from 4 inches to 4 feet.

Alpha Anywhere integrates with PhoneGap and Adobe PhoneGap Build, allowing the easy creation of hybrid mobile apps without requiring the developer to install multiple native development environments or purchase a Mac. The company is currently testing a unique solution for occasionally connected mobile apps that rely on remote databases.

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.
