Video demo: iPhone app development completed in "12 hours" with beta of our next major release

iPhone app development in the new PC Web and Mobile world does NOT have to be tedious, expensive and time consuming

In a world where time-to-market is king, extra time is one thing that software developers are perpetually lacking. And, with the ever increasing demand for most business applications to run on multiple devices, —whether its the desktop web, tablets or smartphones—native development is often a very expensive and time consuming proposition. Last week, South Australia based Alpha Developer Michael Darby sent us this video demo of a Point-of-Sale mobile app developed with the beta of our next major release. Complete with charting, mapping, reporting, and order processing for sales, Michael's app is a full-featured field ready application that runs on smartphones, tablets and the desktop. What's the kicker? As he says, he built it in the beta of our next major release in "just 12 hours!"

Watch the video demo to see Michael's app!

With our next major version of Alpha Five, you can develop rich, stunning HTML5 web apps for any device with native-like functionality, including touch events. In addition, your apps are styled to look like native apps using CSS3. While creating a truly native application is extremely time consuming, with Alpha, you can accomplish your iPhone app development effort a LOT faster than with other tools (based on user surveys)—and end up with an application that runs on any modern HTML5 device!
