    Default a quick demo of what can be built in Alpha Five v12 which is currently in beta

    One of the more sophisticated/popular/useful apps that many iPhone owners use is the "Stocks" app that comes with every iPhone and was built in Objective C using Apple's IOS


    To determine how flexible and powerful Alpha Five v12/Alpha Anywhere would be, we decided to replicate that application in Alpha this past weekend.

    The result is captured in this short video - because this app is built entirely in HTML5 as opposed to in Objective C for Apple (and other native langauges for Android etc,) this app will run on the desktop browser, on apple mobile devices on android devices, on Win 8 devices (including with swipe) and even on the new blackberry

    Well, that is cool in "Working Preview" ... what would sell me is seeing it on the actual iPhone ... and explaining how one is going to get it there

    This is pretty cool but I assume you must have internet access for all apps built with alpha anywhere in order to load the a5w page in the cell phone app, is this correct? The reason I ask is sometimes the whole benefit of a native app is to allow use in offline or a limited connectivity area, for example a sales representative placing an order in the back room of a store with no connectivity. The whole product catalog and current stock levels are cached locally on the device and the native app does not need internet access to write an order, just to send it off. This is probably not an issue for most developers though.

    Either way nice job and I am looking forward to the release.

    Luke, there was some passing mention on one of the early AA videos of hoping to be able to utilize local storage at some point, but I'm pretty sure the assumption at this point is that internet access is available at all times.

    Frank - "No Sale"

    From what the dialog says at the top, that is to 'test the component from the browser on your mobile device' ... the video showed an app simulator.

    I have used other tools to do an sample app for iOS ... not a trivial undertaking

    Lyle,

    Alpha produces webapps not native apps but those webapps behave like a native app & have the look and feel of native apps. If you create an app in Alpha & then want to run it on your iPhone or iPad then the "remote test" dialog gives you some easy ways to actually run the app on your device; the QR code option is very nice. See this video: http://www.ajaxvideotutorials.com/V1...AComponent.swf
