TechRepublic cites Alpha Anywhere for being "Cool for HTML5 Application Development"

In a recent TechRepublic article titled "Cool HTML5 Implementations in Application Development and Gaming", Alpha Anywhere and FileMaker are highlighted as "cool implementations." They also point out that one of the differences between the two systems is that Alpha Anywhere is designed for building web and mobile apps, whereas Filemaker's capabilities are limited to web applications. There aremany other additional distinctions between Alpha Anywhere and Filemaker when it comes to being Enterprise Business ready but we were happy that we received this "shout out" and hope you will find it an interesting article. We've copied the portion of the article discussing Alpha Anywhere's HTML5 development tools below:

The tutorial Vimeo video provides a good overview of the kinds of applications that you can build using Alpha Anywhere. It also shows how to connect with a SQL database and how to make edits to add images using a notebook camera with the Alpha Anywhere image control panel (Figure B). Figure B

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.
