BURLINGTON, Mass. April, 7, 2014 (Korea Bizwire)–Starting today, developers can slash the time and cost needed to produce  enterprise-level hybrid business applications that run on multiple  mobile devices and the web. Alpha Software Corporation has announced the  release of Alpha Anywhere™ 2.0, the complete front-end to back-end,  prototype-to-production environment for rapidly developing and deploying  enterprise-level, cross-platform mobile and web business applications.  Alpha Anywhere 2.0 incorporates a host of powerful enhancements,  including Adobe® PhoneGap™ Build integration, enhanced security,  built-in support for high-quality icons fonts and design elements, and  new style templates that mirrors the latest iOS7 and Android look and  feel.

Alpha Anywhere is a single development and deployment environment with  rich design, security, integration and administrative features that  slashes development time by 5 to 10 times, and simplifies the process of  building HTML5 business applications. With one click, Alpha Anywhere 2.0  can then turn these HTML5 business applications into installable hybrid  applications with full access to device hardware.

“We originally built our solution as an Alpha Anywhere responsive web  design that worked on smartphones, tablets and desktops,” said Max  Hammond, CFO and Vice President at Advanced Practice Management, a  medical practice management firm that provides software solutions for  physicians. “Using the new Adobe PhoneGap Build integration in Alpha  Anywhere, we have been able to quickly and easily transform our solution  into an installable mobile business app that taps right into native  hardware functionality and runs securely and responsively on any mobile  device or desktop used in clinics.”

The Benefits of HTML5 Plus Access to Native Device Capabilities and  Deployment Through App Stores

Building HTML5 applications in Alpha Anywhere enables developers to  rapidly create business applications that can run on a wide range of  mobile devices and the web. Alpha Anywhere makes it possible to create  hybrid business apps with one click by fully automating the process of  building Adobe PhoneGap™ apps by integrating the Adobe PhoneGap Build  service, which assembles PhoneGap apps in the cloud from HTML5 and  standardized native code. As a result, Alpha Anywhere preserves the  benefits of HTML5 development and adds those benefits commonly found in  native applications, such as exploiting hardware features like barcode  scanners, local storage and contact lists.

“By giving developers – even those without prior PhoneGap knowledge – a  simple and fast way to turn their Alpha Anywhere-created HTML5 business  applications into hybrid apps, Alpha Software has made the creation of  powerful cross platform hybrid business applications a reality for even  more businesses,” said Brian LeRoux, Product Manager for Adobe PhoneGap.  “By leveraging PhoneGap, Alpha Software customers can quickly create,  update and deploy business applications that run on a wide range of  devices and can leverage the key hardware features new mobile apps  require.”

“Using the new PhoneGap Build integration in Alpha Anywhere 2.0,  developers can build impressive HTML5 business applications, transform  them into hybrid business apps, and then deploy them through the Apple  App Store or Google Play Store,” said Dan Bricklin, CTO of Alpha  Software. “We integrated Adobe PhoneGap Build so developers can build  hybrid business apps from within the easy-to-use Alpha Anywhere  environment.”

Enhancements for Easier Development and Deployment of Responsive  Business Applications

Additional new enhancements in the latest release of Alpha Anywhere  include:

  • Built-in, Wizard-Driven Support for Industry Standard Icon Fonts  makes it easy to choose and use high-quality icons and design elements  that are rendered as fonts instead of requiring multiple bitmaps for  different screen sizes and resolutions. Developers can choose from a  wide variety of professionally designed icons, allowing them to get a  polished look with little effort.
  • Support for Cross-Domain Ajax Callbacks facilitates getting  data from third-party services.
  • Number Format Genie makes it easier to specify sophisticated  numeric formatting for data displayed on the screen, such as currency,  part numbers and more.
  • New Web Application Security Genie makes it easier to configure  the Alpha Anywhere security framework.
  • New capability facilitates the use of cURL commands on the server,  leveraging a popular library for accessing files using URL syntax.
  • Enhancements to automate support of internationalized versions  of applications.
  • Many enhancements to the List Control, including client-side  group breaks, an index bar, and filtering and sorting, all of which  enhance the display of lists.
  • New Style Themes to support the iOS7 and Android look, which  are in addition to the existing iOS6 and many desktop themes.
  • New Quick Start Templates added to the Alpha Anywhere library.

Alpha Anywhere, which offers on-premise and cloud-based hosting,  transparent and affordable licensing and low ongoing operational costs,  is available now. The full version is available for a 30-day free trial.  For more information visit:
