Upgraded test capability. Quickly test your app in a browser or on a mobile device

The Test screen has been upgraded. It’s now super easy to test the app in desktop Web browser, mobile Web browser, and on the actual device via Tiggr Mobile Tester.

Support added for REST XML services and for using the POST method

REST services are no longer limited to just JSON response format, Tiggr now supports XML. We have also improved ability to make POST requests.

New service “echo” mode makes it possible to test the app without connecting to the actual service

To make it even easier to work with remote services, we have introduced an “echo” or mock service. Basically, instead of making a call to the actual remote service each time during development, you can invoke a local “echo” or mock service which returns a sample of the real data.

Use custom external JavaScript libraries in your app

To make it simpler to customise and use custom JavaScript, we have added a feature where any custom JavaScript library can be loaded and included in the app.

New Tiggr JavaScript framework to make it simpler to extend your apps with custom JavaScript

Create and use custom JavaScript functions when mapping service data to the UI

When mapping UI when data source, you can now specify custom JavaScript to run when the mapping occurs
