Alpha Community, and the new App Launcher in Alpha Anywhere

Normally when you think of what a company brings to its products, the first thing that comes to mind is something technical. In this case, the benefit of working with Alpha is not  technical in nature, but is very real none the less. It is the combined power of the knowledge and helpfulness of Alpha's community of users and developers creating solutions for our products.  

A good case in point is this thread on the Alpha LinkedIn Group and the Alpha message board about new "App launcher" component in Alpha Anywhere (Alpha Five v12)

Any tutorial on how to use the applauncher component?
Chuck Stewart • I would like to see that.
Bruce Jonson • Hi Keith, David Kates did a video This is part of a discussion over on the message board Looks like a component that will be very useful Hope this helps. Bruce

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.
