OutSystems Adds New Mobile App Development Features
June 29, 2017

OutSystems announced two new innovations that solve the biggest challenges with enterprise mobile application development - speed and user experience.

The first new feature, called App Templates, forms the building blocks for speed. Each app template includes a combination of beautiful pre-built screens with navigation, business logic, and data structures. App Templates also supports out-of-the-box mobility needs like Touch ID authentication, Google Maps integration, and in-app notifications. With App Templates, IT teams can cut development times by as much as 70 percent.

The second new innovation, called Theme Customizer, helps developers rapidly build beautiful, agency-grade user experiences without extensive design knowledge. With the Theme Customizer, developers can upload an image of a company logo and OutSystems instantly creates the mobile app theme that perfectly matches their style and brand. Developers preview their application in real time with a built-in emulator and tune them automatically to the device they are running on, creating a perfect native look and feel.

“We’re constantly looking for new ways to empower teams to deliver the solutions their organizations demand - fast,” said Paulo Rosado, OutSystems CEO. “These new features we announced today deliver on our promise to continue to fuel innovation, improving the low-code development experience and helping IT keep pace with the growing needs of the business.”

“With this release, OutSystems is bringing the ease-of-use and simplicity of templates and themes to enterprise development teams,” said Jason Bloomberg, President of Agile Digital Transformation analyst firm Intellyx. “Especially with mobile apps, customer expectations have raised the bar on functionality, design and performance. With its App Templates and Theme Customizer, OutSystems nails all three.”
