The latest Appery.io update packs some really awesome updates and features. Check them out here.

Fast

Everything now runs much faster. You will see major speed improvements when you open pages, services or any other editors in the app builder. It’s simply much faster. And, we are not done. We have plans to make the platform a lot more faster.

The fastest way to build Salesforce mobile apps

With new Salesforce integration, we made it incredibly fast to build mobile apps with Salesforce API. You can now browser all your Salesforce objects right inside Appery.io and instantly generate the services that you need. Simply select the service that you need:

Quickly add any service and use Appery.io visual mapping editor to bind the service to a page.

We also added new UI Page Templates intended for Salesforce apps to speed up your development.   You can add the page templates to your apps and then “wire them” to Salesforce objects as explained above to create mobile apps.   The new templates are in the Appery.io Plugin Catalog.  To use them, select “Create New” “From Plugin” and select “Salesforce Mobile Design Templates” as shown in the picture below.

Upgraded Push

You asked for this feature and now it’s here. You can now send push notifications to specific users based on filter (query) results. You can use a visual query builder, or switch to more advanced mode where you define the query yourself:
