Applications built in the upcoming Alpha product - designed to run on touch screens from 4 inches to 4 feet (and more) wide

We came across this video posted by Keith Manilla—a new developer to Alpha, who needed an application built quickly for a trade show in Bahrain. This video shows the app running on a 48-inch touch screen, and represents only a small part of the application Keith built in the upcoming version of Alpha.

Most of the demos we have shown so far, such as this one, have featured applications running on mobile devices and on regular size PCs/laptops. This video demonstrates the versatility of the applications that can be built in the upcoming version of Alpha.



 

Regarding this application, Keith states
Done in a day. Revisions were done onsite while the app is live. Alpha V12 Beta helped deliver the app within a 24-hour time frame. I guess I would have gone mad if my option was doing it in Flash ActionScript 3. No bugs from the Beta version. I spent more time preparing the images compared to developing them in V12. We used a Samsung 48" LED with a touch panel and on-board computer running Windows 7 embedded. The server was my laptop running the V12 Application Server. The UX component IS the centre of the universe.
New business intelligence tools in Alpha's upcoming release: Exporting Layout Table Reports to Excel with live Excel formulae
Video: HTML5 note-taking app running on iOS, Android, and Windows 8 smartphones, tablets, and ultrabooks
