Wondering how to access your SQL database from a mobile app? We’ve got the answer. API Express, recently released by Appery.io, can make your existing SQL database RESTful in minutes, allowing you to perform CRUD operations from any external source, whether it’s a mobile app or a web page.
Appery.io and Bright Pattern have partnered to improve the simplicity of implementing live in-app customer service for enterprises and their customers. The partnership’s result is a plug-in for the Appery.io platform that helps companies to quickly add contact center functionality to their mobile apps. Read the rest of this entry »
We are happy to announce that we have worked with MetaCert to provide a security API to enable our developers to protect their apps from malicious and unwanted links.
Most mobile malware is downloaded when end users click on malicious links inside legitimate apps. The MetaCert Security API adds a thin, but very powerful, layer of security to your app.
The API allows you to check the reputation of web links in real time, providing an invisibly secure experience. It can be used to block phishing sites from loading or navigating to. You can also stop end-users from sharing links that are NSFW.
To make it even simpler to use the MetaCert Security API, we have published a MetaCert plug-in. Appery.io developers can quickly add the plug-in to any new or existing app and check for the reputation of any web links in the app. Read the rest of this entry »
Instant API is a true API-as-a-Service which makes it easy and cost-effective to build an API. Instant API has simplified all of the key areas of an API’s lifecycle, covering API creation, hosting, management, discovery, monetization, and documentation.
For example, let’s say you have information and services or data and services you want to expose through an API that can be used internally for BYOD initiatives or externally by developers or your business partners. With the API deployed, you still don’t have a mobile app. That’s where the Appery.io platform comes in. Appery.io makes it very easy to build mobile apps with any API. Combine the Instant API exposed APIs with the Appery.io cloud-based development platform, and you get a fast way to build a complete solution and deploy the mobile app.
In this post, we are going to show you an example of how to do that, but first here’s the info for an upcoming webinar in which Appery.io and Instant API will demo this process in action. Read the rest of this entry »
Adding a map to your mobile app can provide great value to users. Maps used together with a smartphone can solve a wide range of tasks, whether it’s a pizza delivery app, GPS navigation, or travel guide with attractions. One of the most popular online maps is Google Maps.
Appery.io provides a convenient way to work with Google Maps for mobile apps – a Google Map component with a set of configurable properties and a preinstalled marker. All you need to add the Google Map into your app is to drag and drop the component on the page. That’s all: Google Maps will be loaded when the page is displayed.
Images are an integral part of any mobile app UI. A frequent requirement is to process these images (for example, making the image smaller for a particular device screen size). Such processing could be done on the client, but requires additional code and likely will effect app performance. A better solution is usually to process the images on the server where it is much faster and also gives you more options and flexibility. Sirv is a cloud service that does just that. Sirv and Appery.io have joined forces to show you how easy it is to use advanced image processing when building your app in Appery.io. Read the rest of this entry »
