Get Inspired To Use The Pro Version

App Building, Get Inspired Jerry Lieveld 26 Aug 2015

Come gather around all you ambitious app builders! And discover how to make the most out of AppMachine’s Pro version with these freshly built demo apps.

Although you could push AppMachine to its limits, you don’t have to be an experienced developer to use our Pro features. In fact, we made it quite easy for you with a couple of new demo apps that use our green Pro blocks. These demo Pro apps will show you some of our extensive possibilities and unprecedented power. You can access and copy these apps in the Designer and discover how easy it is to use AppMachine’s Pro features.

Data from Excel

All the data in these demo pro apps are imported with Excel which is a great way to control your app easily. You don’t have to add any data manually, you can just add it all in one Excel sheet. If you know some Excel, these demo apps will guide you to the process of importing data.

Design with XML

We also like to service our most advanced app builders. Do you really want to explore the deep sea of our source code? Then write your own XML. The layouts of the demo pro apps all use XML. This gives you the total freedom to design your app layout, including margins and colors. You could just use the drag and drop feature of the Layout Editor or even add your own code.

We’ll shortly describe 4 of our new demo apps. Feel free to copy and use them for your own purpose.

Demo 1: Event app with dynamic data
