Likelihood to Recommend

Alpha Anywhere

We use Alpha Anywhere to develop large scale business applications. So far, we haven't found any real limitations. This is exemplified by my response to my customers who frequently ask, "Is it possible..." I always interrupt them before this sentence goes any further by telling them, "with our development platform, anything's possible" (then we have to discuss whether the time/cost is worth the added benefit of what they're requesting).

Swiftify

It is recommended to use Swiftify in any situation that requires iOS development because even if you develop just in Swift or just in Objective-C, it could be helpful for researching and investigating purposes.Additionally, if you need to convert big quantities of code from Objective-C to Swift, this tool will optimise that work. It will not translate a whole class of 2000 lines perfectly, but after converting it you can review the code and modify the lines that have not been properly converted, making you save more than the 50% of the time in that case.I've not been able to test it properly as I only used the trial version and it is really limited.

Pros

Alpha Anywhere

  • Mobile application development with true offline capability.
  • Low-code, rapid app development and deployment environment for building native-quality, cross platform web and mobile business applications.
  • Cross platform mobile apps created with HTML5.
  • Back-end database support for pretty much all the most popular SQL backends as well as NoSQL and Rest APIs.

Swiftify

  • It's especially good for people that know Swift, but have very little experience with Objective-C. It gives you a first cut of code translation. Then you can go from there.

Cons

Alpha Anywhere

  • Whenever I'm asked to criticize Alpha Anywhere, my first comment refers to the documentation. For sure, they've made some improvements, this year, but I still wish it were better. Because I moved from another development package, I really had to start learning from scratch... I've been at it, for years, and I still feel like I have a way to go. The good news is that Alpha has a very active Message Board and there are lots of people who generously give their time to answer questions and help solve problems. There's no "tech support" line to call for help. Alpha DOES offer a paid "mentoring" service, which I used, several times. Unfortunately, my experience with the mentors wasn't as positive as I hoped it would be.
  • Alpha needs to improve its "templates" to make them more modern for users. I've never had a complaint from users, but I'd like my applications to have a newer, flashier look.
  • Alpha advertises itself as "codeless" programming. It is! You can certainly develop an entire application without writing a single line of "code." Unfortunately, that application will be pretty basic. If you're a serious developer, you'll want to learn "javascript" and "XBasic"... it'll come in very handy, as will an understanding about how to create SQL views and queries (and, Stored Procedures), etc.

Swiftify

  • New conversion languages, like Python or C++ would be great.
  • Some more free tries would help to know how important/helpful it would be for iOS projects.

Alternatives Considered

Alpha Anywhere

Alpha Anywhere is a more robust, complete and lower cost solution for rapid desktop, web and mobile application cross platform development.

Swiftify

Swiftify tries to convert the code even if the code can not be executed in a real situation.I chose Swiftify because most of the times you just need to convert one line, one method... That of course, it is using and used by other code that you didn't add in the conversion code, but you just need to convert that for now. In this situation, Swiftify converts the code, other ones such as iSwift will report an error in the code and will not convert it.
