Building and Customizing Standalone Apps

In addition to using the new JavaScript Client in the browser on any computer, tablet or mobile device, you can create standalone apps for iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10 devices that have your JavaScript remote form embedded. These can even operate completely offline (if you have a Serverless Client serial).

To do this, there are three custom app, or "wrapper", projects for the JavaScript Client: one for iOS, one for BlackBerry 10, and another for Android. These projects allow you to build custom apps, which create a thin layer around a simple Web Viewer which can load your JavaScript remote form. They also allow your form access to much of the device's native functionality, such as contacts, GPS, and camera.

This document describes the steps required in order to create and deploy your own customized wrapper app for each of these platforms. It should provide you with all of the information you need to create your own, self-contained, branded mobile app, and deploy it to users manually or through the device's app store.

Please note: This document is no longer maintained for wrapper versions as of v1.2.0.
