    No, Peter I haven't.
    Having tried it I was very impressed but as you may know, I use a different web and mobile product.
    If I could see an easy way to use AT to front end a SQLServer16 Db, I would think again.
    Uploading photographic evidence is my goal at present.

    I don't know, Ted. I'm thinking $40,000.00 is not too bad for Developer and IIS. And $40,000.00 is not too bad for a renewal. But I'm drawing the line at HALF A MILLION BUCKS for Transform Unlimited. Given my budget. You know what I mean?

    You don't think that the marketing department screwed this up just a little do you?

    Im assuming that is some weird screw up on the website. Alpha Anywhere cannot surely be that expensive, especially when most services these days are moving to a monthly subscription model to remove the barrier to entry that a 40K lump sum would be.

    Or am I missing something?

    We also havent bought transform yet, or tried it out. But I cannot really see a use case for it as we dont often fill out a form that we dont need to edit again.

    The real price for a 3 user pack is $35/month Jonathan.
    As far as using it, although I don't use that product, the focus on forms seems a bit limiting to me be but it's their marketing department and they sometimes get it wrong I suspect.
    If this was my product, I would have made it adaptable to front end any major Db type. I think that the Phonegap side prevents that but I could be wrong.
    As an example, I would use it to capture and upload evidential images. It does a lot more than just forms.
    Working within the Native Shell of a phone or tablet is a bit of a "black art", so this no-code solution takes a lot of the pain away.

    Suggest you devote 1 hour on the trial app, you may see other opportunities to use it in anger. It is really easy to set up.
    Not selling it you understand as I have my own different toolkit already paid for.
