Auto scale App Builder's apps

When we create a new app in the DecSoft App Builder's IDE, the default app's designtime size is 320x480, and, there must be a reason to be like that, right? The reason is how DecSoft App Builder can, optionally, auto scale our apps. DecSoft App Builder can auto scale our apps, and, this works from smaller to larger logical resolutions, but (and this is what matter here) not at the contrary.

Windows apps with DecSoft's App Builder

With DecSoft App Builder we can create apps that can run, without any dependency, in all the modern desktop and mobile browsers. Also is possible to create WebExtensions for the same modern mobile and desktop browsers. Thanks to the integration with Apache Cordova, with DecSoft App Builder we can also create apps for the Android platform and the iOS platform.

The above platforms appear quite interesting, but, what about the Microsoft platform? Can DecSoft App Builder create apps for the Microsoft platform? The answer is yes. Again, thanks to the integration with Apache Cordova, with DecSoft App Builder we can create apps for Microsoft platform, in particular, we can create apps for the Universal Windows Platform.

App Builder themes for your apps

Did you know that the current release of DecSoft App Builder includes up to 36 app's themes ready to be used by your developed apps? This means that you can add (in designtime) one or more app's themes in your apps, and, then you can change the app's theme in runtime, that is, by user demand, for example. Then only thing that you need to do is to include the themes that you want to be available, and, then use the "SetAppTheme" action, to set the app's theme that you wanted.

In this other blog entry we will learn about what we need in order to prepare the appropriate environment for our apps to be run in the iOS platform. That is, what hardware and sofware we need in order to get the best results as possible. And what is the difference between to build our apps for the Android or the Windows platforms, and, do the same for the iOS platform.
