NSB/AppStudio 2.0 adds jQuery Mobile support

Brings drag and drop development for jQuery Mobile

January 11, 2012 -- NS BASIC Corporation has announced the release of NSB/AppStudio 2.0. The release features full support for jQuery Mobile, with an IDE that allows developers to drag and drop controls on the design screen.

"jQuery Mobile is becoming the most commonly used framework for mobile devices", said George Henne, President of NS BASIC Corporation. "But developers have had to hand code the elements on their forms. App Studio lets them layout their elements in a fraction of the time, generating the necessary code and HTML automatically."

Right clicking on an element on the Design Screen brings up a list of events, and takes the developer to a code window to write the event handling code.

Other new features in the release include improved Ajax support, the ability to turn mobile apps into desktop apps and easier to use New Project and Open Sample dialogs.

NSB/AppStudio is a complete, easy to use development environment for mobile devices. BASIC and JavaScript are supported as development languages. With a familiar look and feel, NSB/AppStudio provides a full, modern implementation of BASIC, with proper subroutines, user defined data types and event driven execution. The development environment runs on a Windows desktop.

Once you have tested your app in the browser, with a single click you can either deploy it to a device as a web app or compile it into a native app using PhoneGap Build.

NSB/AppStudio includes over 150 statements and functions. Support is provided for SQLite, geolocation, graphics and more. A full set of standard screen input and output objects and dialog boxes are included. A 155 page handbook, tutorials and lots of sample code are included.

The execution framework is based on JavaScript, HTML5 and WebKit. While knowledge of these technologies is not required, they give NSB/AppStudio considerable power under the hood. They also give NSB/AppStudio apps portability to platforms supporting these technologies.

With support for jQuery Mobile, Basic, JavaScript, CSS, HTML5 and PhoneGap, NSB/AppStudio is a complete and easy to use mobile development tool.

The product is available immediately for download from the company's website. Normally priced at $149.95 USD, it is available at an introductory price of $99.95.
