We Can Customize the AlphaRef Reader Example App with Your Data

Alpha Software

Mobile app consulting services now available to customize our AlphaRef Reader example app with your organization's reference material data, CSS, and more

Last year Alpha Software CTO Dan Bricklin released the AlphaRef Reader, a general purpose system for reading reference material on a tablet or smartphone built entirely in Alpha Anywhere. To see how AlphaRef Reader performs on your device, download it from the iOS App Store or Google Play. While the demo version of the app uses the King James Bible as source material (as a way to showcase the speed with which the app can handle large amounts of data), the structure was specifically designed as a framework within which a diverse array of business applications could live. Many Alpha Anywhere developers have already customized AlphaRef Reader with their own data, stylesheets, etc.

Customize Your App

After receiving a number of requests, we are pleased to announce that we are now offering consulting services to customize the AlphaRef Reader using your data. For example, Alpha Refreader can be customized for:
  • HR handbooks

  • Educational materials

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.
