Manage App Development Projects Easily in AppOffice™
Platform Extensions: Include Existing Native or HTML5 Code
- Bridge the gap between “mobile web” and “fully custom” apps
- Inject pre-built native code via the Native AppBlock extension (iOS and Android)
- Easily expose features that continue to work in “airplane mode” when a connection to data is not available
Seamlessly Integrate Apps with your Data Sources
Direct XML Integration
Ideal for: dynamically changing or frequently updated content; e.g. news feeds, inventory, work orders, etc. In most scenarios, this integration will not require two-way communication although two-way communication is supported by the platform.
Data streaming is set up directly between your backend system server and the mobile devices, bypassing the MobileSmith server. MobileSmith provides a simple set of instructions to help you deliver your data in the XML format the apps require. When you assemble your app, the AppBlock intended to interface with your system is configured with a URL that pulls that data from the backend server. Your AppBlock becomes “RSS on steroids” as data is pulled directly into the mobile device and displayed in the app UI according to the data mapping rules you define.
Ideal for: static or infrequently updated content; e.g. store locations, employee lists, catalogs, etc.
MobileSmith can provide secure and reliable SOAP/REST connectors to your web-based or legacy systems. Our modular adapters will utilize your existing APIs to quickly access and translate your data into the XML format used by our platform. You can configure the MobileSmith CMS to automatically refresh your data at various intervals (daily, weekly, etc.) or you can refresh your content on-demand in MobileSmith AppOffice™ (your cloud-based CMS).
Application Access and Security:
MobileSmith provides various types of application access: Anonymous; App Activation; Registration Required; or User Authentication based on SASL mechanisms.
