How to Build a Mobile Webapp with Joget Workflow in 10 Minutes

When v3 was first released in 2012, it made process and database driven application development amazingly fast and easy for programmers and analysts alike.

Some of our partners would meet up with their clients and develop a fully functional application as a proof-of-concept (inclusive of their change requests) in 60 minutes or less. The partner would take one of the client's MS Word drawn process flow chart, build the app and automate their process right in front of them! Developing a working app in 60 minutes was super-fast in terms of app development time, but not really suitable for clients that cannot stay at least 60 minutes for a presentation :)

Ever since the release of v3, we have been looking for ways to further speed up the development of apps that are supported automatically on mobile devices. So, in v4 we added the App Generator. It would allow anyone to very quickly get their ideas to a proof-of-concept or a minimum viable product stage in 10 minutes or less!

The following video demonstrates how someone can build a web application that supports both desktop and mobile browsers in 10 minutes. There are 2 versions, one in real time and the other in sped up mode.

From the videos, you can see how fast one can develop an app using the App Generator. In future, we could have app generation templates that one can use to speed up the development of all types of apps. If you have any comments or ideas to share, please comment below. Cheers!

Joget Workflow On-Demand

This first quarter of 2014 has been an extremely exciting start to the year. All the months of hard work have led us to this point! The first week of April sees us releasing and launching Joget Workflow v4 and just a couple of days ago, we quietly released Joget Workflow On-Demand.


So, what is Joget Workflow On-Demand?

Joget Workflow On-Demand is a subscription based service that offers Joget Workflow Enterprise Edition to small businesses on the Cloud.

It is an application platform as a service (aPaaS) that allows users to create their own workflow apps or database driven apps with or without programming knowledge. Alternatively, they can make use of the ready made simple apps such as employee self service portal, expenses, invoicing, etc. for their own use, or as template to build new ones."

What are the Benefits of subscribing to Joget Workflow On-Demand?

Here are some of the benefits that can immediately be realized.
  • Rapid time to value/benefit - Significantly reduce the time it takes to start producing value without worrying about the time spent in installation, set up and configuration.
