Follow Up to APEX for Mobile Development Webinar

Two weeks ago my Webinar on APEX for Mobile Phones took place with many interested attendees. If you missed the webinar, you can view the recording over here.

With this post i give you a listing of links to all ressources mentioned in the webinar, as well as some F.A.Q. regarding mobile on APEX.

There will also be information on a 1-day training on mobile Applications with Oracle APEX, given by me in Oct 2011.

At first a listing of the ressources:

The most common Questions and their answers:

  • Q: Is your mobile Theme available for download?
  • A: How I built the mobile Theme is described in a series of Blogposts
  • Q: Do I have to develop seperate Pages or Applications for mobile and Standard or does jQuery mobile automatically render my desktop version mobile-friendly?
  • A: Mobile Websites and Desktop Websites have one big difference: the screen size. So you will want to make sure, that the little screen you have is used as good as possible. Show only the necessary informations and reduced menues will be beneficiary for the mobile experience. That means: develop one Desktop Application with all the functionality you need, and a separate Application for mobile devices with only the necessary functions on it. Your users will appreciate that.
  • Q: Is jQuery mobile limited to iPhones or Android Phones?
  • A: Not at all. jQuery mobile tries to cover all mobile devices like phones or tablets. Depending on the device features jQuery mobile tries to make your page as nice and good working as possible. See the Device Support Matrix for Details.
  • Q: Do you need extra Skills in HTML or CSS or Javascript to create a mobile APEX Application?
  • A: Once you have the mobile theme you only need standard APEX skills to create a mobile Application.

 

If you are eager to start developing mobile Applications but don’t know how to do that you can attend my 1-Day Training Class for Developing mobile Application with Oracle APEX.
This Training is scheduled to take place on Oct 04th 2011 in Vienna, Austria. If there is enough demand for an extra english-speaking Training class i would schedule an english Training the day before or so.

Please email me at apex [at] click-click.at or comment on this blog post if you are interested in attending an english speaking training class for developing mobile Application with Oracle APEX.

    Hello,

    i tried to download the video of the recorded webinar, but the video on http://www.red-gate.com/products/oracle-development/deployment-suite-for-oracle/webinars/webinar-peter-raganitsch-apex-mobile
    points to the recording of “BuildingApex Plugins 101″.

    Where can i find the correct recordin?

    Regards,
    Dirk

    Hi Peter,

    I’ve got a problem relating to the ApEx-Login-Process on iOS 5.1.
    It seems that there are some issues with the redirection – if you click on “login”, it redirects to the login-page without any error message.
    I could reproduce this problem in my applications, but also on the ApEx-Builder-Login-Page and your Demo-Application on different iPhone 4 with iOS 5.1.
    If I use an iPhone with iOS 4.2 everything works fine…

    Did you encouter such problems during your developments?
    Do you have any clue on what could cause this behaviour?

    Thanks in advance,
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    I had that only once during a demo, but after that never again.

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for the info.

    I was wondering if you have tried it displayed with a WebView (android)?

    I’m working on an app to wrap an apex site at the moment and would like to present a more native l&f, no address bar, navigation etc.

    Thanks,
    Neil.

    Hi Neil,

    i worked with Phonegap to create a native Wrapper for iOS and Android, that worked well.
