The latest version of MobiForms now supports Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. MobiForms supports many Apple iOS specific features including the built-in camera and GPS. The major advantage of MobiForms is that unlike the Apple iOS/iPhone SDK you do not need to own an Apple Mac or pay for the expensive yearly membership of the iPhone Developer Program. The MobiForms Developer will run on a Windows PC or an Apple Mac. Deployment of the MobiForms app is done via the USB cable and the Apple iTunes client on Windows PC or Apple Mac.
Alternatively, with the new MobiForms HTML5 option an HTML file is produced which can be saved and served via a web server as an offline HTML5 mobile app.
Up until now developing for Apple iOS mobile devices required in depth professional programming skills with the following items:
MobiForms replaces all of these requirements with one simple, intuitive, drag and drop interface. No Objective-C programming is required.The MobiForms adhoc deployment approach totally avoids the Apple App Store and app approval process. The app approval process alone can take weeks. Note that for each Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch the MobiForms support team have to register its UUID with Apple to receive a runtime certificate for the MobiForms runtime client to run. The MobiForms licence includes free registration for one iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. There is a small fee (£10 approx $15) for each additional iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Additional MobiForms iPhone certificates can be purchased from the MobiForms iPhone Certificate Buy Now button.
The MobiForms runtime certicate will remain valid (and will be renewed at no additional cost by the MobiForms support team) for as long as the customer has a valid MobiForms support licence.
MobiForms now makes it possible for novice or experienced programmers alike to quickly create mobile business application for Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Additionally, the same app can be run on other platforms such as Windows Mobile and Google Android.
The MobiForms Native runtime supports the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod camera including 1D and 2D bar code reading, GPS integration and SQLite database connectivity for off-line mobile database storage.
The MobiForms Native runtime for Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod is complemented by the MobiForms Sync Server (MSS) to offer a true offline store and forward capability with sophisticated online synchronisation, bi-directional replication and offline data buffering. The MobiForms Sync Server and the MobiForms Developer are offered together in the MobiForms Advanced Edition.
