Mobile App Calendar Integration with MobileTogether


MobileTogether gives developers holistic access to the rich feature sets of mobile devices for cross-platform deployment of native apps for Android, iOS (iPhone, iPad), Windows 8 & 10, Windows Phone 10, and HTML5  browsers for other users. MobileTogether apps created from a single design can seamlessly access mobile device camera, messaging, GPS, audio, email features, and even feature mobile app calendar integration.

Since MobileTogether uses a combination of visual drag-and-drop UI design and easy-to-understand functional programming for data selection, it’s easy for any programmer or web developer to build highly sophisticated apps to read and write calendar events for all platforms. For instance, a mobile scheduling app for a large, distributed user base could help everyone easily sync their calendars.

Efficient MobileTogether Services on Backend Servers for Mobile Apps


MobileTogether Server Advanced Edition services on backend servers for mobile apps execute independently of any app running on a mobile device, based on a variety of triggers. MobileTogether services can provide background functionality to mobile apps or perform automated standalone actions without requiring any end user to interact with a mobile app. For instance, a MobileTogether service could generate a report and email it to the server administrator at a specified time. Or, a service could query a database based on some external criteria and perform an action such as sending a notification or an email.

A MobileTogether Server service is a set of MobileTogether Designer actions deployed to the server as a specialized solution file.

These are useful for letting the end user complete a process or view a message payload without interrupting his or her progress in the app.

MobileTogether makes it easy to configure pop-up windows of any size. Let’s take a look at how it works.

How To Build Your First App


MobileTogether Designer provides a powerful drag and drop interface that allows for incredibly quick cross platform app development. To help developers get started I have produced this video tutorial, which covers the interface and the steps needed to build your first app.

CbC Reporting Made Easy


A recent mandate from the OECD calls on large, multi-national companies to report financials annually for each country in which they do business to their local tax authority. The OECD requires that this detailed Country by Country (CbC) Report be filed in XML document according to their reporting schema. But for tax departments that work largely in Excel, this provides a significant stumbling block – and companies are scrambling to meet the requirements by the end of 2017.

The new CbC Reporting Solution from Altova takes the pain out of meeting the mandate by automatically generating valid, properly formatted CbC XML reports based on data either entered manually – or imported directly from Excel. Let’s take a look at how it works.
