BEST PRACTICES SERIES

Altova announced the release of MobileTogether 3.2, its cross-platform mobile development framework. This release introduces over 18 important new features for building data-centric mobile apps.

Highlights of the newly released features include:

  • NFCis a set of communication protocols that allow two devices to exchange messages when within a few centimeters of proximity. Android Push is now also supported. MobileTogether now supports pushing and receiving NFC messages including text, URI, MIME media, application records, and more.
  • Access mobile device contacts: Apps built in MobileTogether can now access information from the user’s contacts stored on the device, which is useful, for example, when a user wants to send something via email or SMS, or place a call from within the app.
  • Text-to-Speech: This new action makes it easy to add text-to-speech functionality to your apps so that the built-in speech synthesizer in the device will read text aloud to the user. This is perfect for use-cases where the user may need to use the app without looking at the screen, such as hands-free situations. 

New features for tables  dynamic table growth (left to right) and  on-demand loading of tables.
