WaveMaker Announces Zero-Coding Platform for Mobile Apps
With this zero-code solution, enterprises write once, and WaveMaker automatically generates a desktop, Google Android and Apple iOS app.Application platform software specialist WaveMaker announced the availability of Hybrid Mobile App Development as part of its Rapid Application Development (RAD) platform. With this zero-code solution, enterprises write once, and WaveMaker automatically generates a desktop, Google Android and Apple iOS app that conforms to platform standards, and can also leverage device capabilities such as camera, geo-location, network and local file storage. Hybrid MRAD is particularly useful for applications including business productivity apps, enabling employees to use those apps on a variety of platforms, versions, and devices as well as internal apps that automate company business processes, harnessing device capabilities and enabling remote use of API services and media apps. "Native apps development is expensive. Constant changes, upgrades to Android and iOS and deprecation of APIs makes it very complex and expensive for companies to keep up with," WaveMaker CEO Vijay Pullur told eWEEK. "WaveMaker takes this complexity away. We automatically generate hybrid mobile apps for anything built using WaveMaker. The apps generated not only comply with corporate UI standards but also strictly adhere to Android and iOS UI guidelines. This makes WaveMaker generated apps look professional and with a native look and feel."
Pullur explained some hurdles businesses face when mobilizing applications include multiple user interface (UI) standards; such as tablets, screen resolutions and form factors; constantly changing phone operating system (OS) versions; a scarcity of developers who can hand code apps that address all these complexities, and the cost of developing and maintenance of apps.
