Servoy iPhone App Builder
Software-as-a-service company Servoy has released the iPhone Application Builder, a tool meant to simplify web application development for iPhones and iPod touches. The tool is said to run on any SQL database, whether local or hosted online, and support the creation of business-oriented apps without any necessary programming expertise, thanks to the use of a special mini-IDE. The Builder takes metadata from databases and tables and generates all forms and objects.
Each form created through the tool can be assigned to use a different table or database, and the results can be natively previewed in their final form. Running the Builder first requires downloading the Community Edition of Servoy Developer, which includes five free client licenses.
