Leverage PowerBuilder resources:

  If you have invested in PowerBuilder, we have good news for you:
  • PowerBuilder developers can instantly build new mobile applications. They do not need development knowledge beyond PowerBuilder. Thereby allowing you to keep the same development team.
  • Reuse some existing PB code:  DataWindows, stored procedures, ESQL, and even PowerScript! If you are looking at extending an existing system, you may want to adapt existing datawindows for nomadic entry screen or mobile reporting, or reuse existing business rules already coded in PowerScript.
  • Leverage your existing Appeon experience: if you are already using Appeon Web, you are already familiar with the key concepts and architecture of our solutions. Although Appeon Mobile and Appeon Web are 2 separate products providing different sets of features, the development process is similar.
  • Leverage existing PowerBuilder licenses: you don’t have to retool the development team, since they continue to use the same development environment they have been using for years.

Create Modern, State-of-the-art User Interfaces:

  Appeon Mobile generates Native applications with an intuitive, user-friendly, and modern User Interface for mobile users. The UI is adapted to the look and feel of each device but still corresponds to the application the user is accustomed to.

Maximize Development Productivity:

  You know how fast PowerBuilder creates data-driven business applications. Appeon Mobile offers the same productivity for developing Mobile Applications! It is at least 10X faster than Xcode or Eclipse!

Minimize Maintenance Costs:


Cut maintenance costs in half or more. You no longer have to maintain 1 project for each mobile OS you wish to support: with Appeon Mobile, you develop once and deploy to all mobile devices.
From a single source code, Appeon Mobile generates Native Applications for several Mobile plateforms

  • Some solutions can partially generate code for several plateforms, but then you have to add code specific to each platform to complete the application, thereby maintaining several projects.
  • Other solutions generate cross-platform applications, but these are web applications, not NATIVE. So users cannot benefit from all the advantages that come with Native applications.
  • Appeon Mobile is the only solution that generates NATIVE mobile applications for several Mobile platforms, from a SINGLE development project. As a result, there is only one project to maintain.

Online, Offline, Anywhere!

  Appeon Mobile provides offline features that allow users to work anytime, anywhere, and under any situation.
An offline mode allows users to collect data and synchronize it at a later date.

Comply with corporate production standards

  Since Appeon Mobile supports leading Databases, Server OS and Application Servers, your mobile applications will fit seamlessly into your existing technology stack (See Technical Requirements).
