Earlier in our blog we hinted at some exciting enhancements coming for our developers. Well, that day is here, and today we are pleased to announce a new set of offerings including key team productivity features, security advances and sleek new UI components, specifically, Panel, YouTube and Vimeo widgets designed to improve the user experience.
“We’re off to a great start thus far in 2014 – in fact, our growth has accelerated and recently surpassed 100,000 registered developers, representing a significant milestone for Appery.io and also for the development community,” stated Fima Katz, CEO of Exadel, the company behind Appery.io. “The number of developers that are using our unique integrated approach of UI development tools with integrated backend services has surpassed even our own expectations” continued Katz. “This accomplishment would not have been possible without the support of our users, and it’s because of their support that Appery.io is fast becoming the industry’s preferred platform for developing enterprise mobile applications for coders as well as business users. We can’t thank them enough!”

Dynamic Teams. Team leaders can easily add and/or remove team members by sharing user seats. All users need to do is subscribe to additional user seats and share them with temporary or permanent team members. Users can share their total allocation of projects (depending on their plan) across their team; and because the projects are cloud based, also easily collaborate in real time with other team members.
Team Level Administration. Team leaders now have administration level control over all the projects across their team. For example, they can now easily backup, modify or delete projects.
Secure REST. With Secure REST, we added an extra level of security to applications that call REST APIs. Secure REST enables users to store the API keys and other secrets in Appery.io’s Cloud Database so they are not exposed to the client. API calls from user apps will flow through our server which acts as a proxy. This capability also enables developers to change API keys without having to redistribute their applications.
YouTube and Vimeo Widgets. We have simplified the way for developers to embed videos in their mobile apps. With our update developers simply drag and drop a YouTube or Vimeo widget onto their project page using the App Builder.
jQuery Mobile Panel Widget. We’re excited to share that users can now add sliding panels that animate on the screen from the left or the right, giving applications additional screen space for engaging users. Panels are ideal for menus, collapsible columns, inspector panes, and other important content. Users simply touch the panel icon to cause the content to slide onto the screen.
In addition to these enhancements, Appery.io has added support for jQuery Mobile 1.4 which further improves app performance and Xcode 5 for iOS7 optimization.
