Appery.io is Now the Fastest Way to Build Mobile Apps for the Salesforce Platform
Beginning on November 18th, our team will be in attendance at Dreamforce ’13, the year’s biggest cloud computing event. Today, ahead of the event, we’re pleased to unveil key enhancements to our Appery.io platform, especially new capabilities that accelerate the development of mobile apps integrated with the Salesforce Platform. Today’s news significantly impacts the future of mobile app development as it further establishes Appery.io as the most complete and preferred solution for accelerating mobile innovation in the enterprise.
In a recent interview with CIO.com, Salesforce’s VP of Developer Relations, Adam Seligman, stated, “Our customers have embraced the cloud and social, and now they’re racing forward with mobile. We check our phones and use them 150 times a day, but the business apps haven’t shown up for the party. With Appery.io, everyone from business users to English majors – “citizen developers” – can build business apps quickly. In order to do this, business managers need more control over the development and management of mobile apps.” Read the rest of this entry »

Our partner, Salesforce.com, certainly knows how to get your attention. They certainly got mine! This is a really great opportunity for mobile app developers. (The runner-up prizes aren’t too shabby either.)
What is this? Salesforce.com hosts a big annual uber-conference called Dreamforce. This year’s runs November 13-17 in San Francisco. As part of the conference, there’s a Developer Zone that focuses more on the technical side. If you have a bunch of developers together, you’re going to have a hackathon. The difference this time is that the prize is so amazing. Read the rest of this entry »

We recently updated Appery.io in a number of ways, adding up to a big step forward for the platform. At the same time, RESTXpress, an important part of the overall mobile solution provided by Appery.io, has been enhanced. We’ve discussed most of the improvements in Appery.io in a previous blog post, so I’ll just provide a summary of these before moving on to a discussion of the changes in RESTXpress.

We are looking forward to our next webinar with Max Katz, Head of Product Management and Developer Relations for Appery.io. This time, he will be explaining how you can get the most out of Appery.io using its newest features, like advanced collaboration, Heroku integration (for publishing apps), and new UI components. You can see all of these new features demonstrated in this hands-on webinar. And, if there’s time, we might be able to squeeze in a little bit of the latest on Exadel RESTXpress, our secure web integration product … maybe.
What’s New in Appery.io
Wednesday, October 2nd, 10am Pacific time

We won! Mobile Merit Awards recognizes excellence achieved in the global mobile industry each year. This year Exadel was recognized as the winner of the best Enterprise Product or Service for our Appery.io mobile app platform. This year’s winners were judged based on industry impact, innovation, technologies, social importance, implementation and overall success factor.
For a while, we’ve noted the growing gap as the demand for mobile innovation in the enterprise outstrips the capabilities and capacity of IT organizations. Our Appery.io mobile app platform is just one example of how we are helping companies close this gap. We also offer services to help organizations use Appery.io and, of course, a full gamut of enterprise software development services in addition to Appery.io-specific services.
Congratulations to customers and our hard-working global product development team!

The last piece is in for the Appery.io self-training course of videos. We’ve now added:
Lesson 5: Appery.io & PhoneGap Capabilities
In the video, we show how to take advantage of the PhoneGap API with ready-to-use “device services” and data mapping in the Appery.io app builder. For this lesson, we build a simple contacts app and go through the steps of testing it in an Android emulator.
Here is the complete set of lessons from the video page on our help site:
- Lesson 1: The UI Builder
- Lesson 2: Data Mapping to a Service
- Lesson 3: Using the Appery.io Database Service
- Lesson 4: Web Service Caching
- Lesson 5: Appery.io & PhoneGap Capabilities
- Lesson 6: A Windows 8 App with the Twitter API
Each lesson links to a YouTube video. For each lesson there is also a link to a Appery.io backup ZIP of the finished lesson app, which you can open as a new project within Appery.io.
We’ll be updating the series soon, so chime in with any suggestions
