MobileTogether Designer Video Demos
Real World Apps
In addition to the demo apps that ship with MobileTogether Designer, you can download and explore some sample AppStore Apps we built in MobileTogether on your device. For each of these, the developer compiled native versions for each operating system from a single layout and codebase created in MobileTogether Designer for submission to the respective app stores.

A Basic Solution to Get You Started
This video will help you get started creating a mobile app solution in MobileTogether Designer by demonstrating how to create a simple News Reader solution that displays real-time newsfeed content from various popular news sites. You will see how easy it is to drag and drop to add controls and control actions to the user interface, connect to source data and select what you need with the built-in XPath Builder, and simulate your solution on multiple mobile platforms.
This video will give you the basics you need to start work on your own, custom mobile solution.

Extending then Basic Solution
In this video, we continue work on the News Reader solution in MobileTogether Designer by adding additional news sources and new UI elements. We'll demonstrate how to add a combo box for selecting a news source, configure it so that the mobile solution remembers the user's last choice, and reload the data when a new news source is selected.

Building a Standalone Solution
This demo shows you how to create a mobile solution that can run on a mobile device without a need to connect to the server when an Internet connection is not available. See how easy it is to create persistent data elements, drag and drop to quickly create and format a table, and add a combo box and populate it with values. We'll create an action tree to perform some calculations based on the end user's data and update the relevant data nodes, and then create an action group to easily re-use these actions in multiple places in the design. By the end of the demo we have developed a complete mobile solution that's ready to deploy.

Extending the Standalone Solution
In this demo, we extend the tip calculator sample we created in the previous video by adding the ability to save the data from each restaurant visit and show a table of all previous visits, plus the total sum over all visits. You'll see how to easily extend the data model for the solution directly in MobileTogether to accomodate storing the historical information, add a control action to save data from each new restaurant visit, and even troubleshoot quickly using the built-in validation messages in MobileTogether. Finally, we'll drag and drop to create a table that displays all of the data for each visit and calculates the total expenses in real time.

Connecting Your Database to Your Mobile Solution
In this demo we are converting the previously built stand-alone tip calculator to save the data from each restaurant visit in a database table stored on SQL Server. You will learn how to modify your solution from storing data on the client to saving data in a database, converting elements into attributes via XQuery statements, and how to connect your mobile solution to a database server backend. Many of the techniques learned in this video are also applicable to building a database-based solution from scratch.

Creating a Chart Using Database Data
In this short video we are demonstrating how to build a mobile solution that creates charts from data stored in a SQL Server database table. You will see the different graph and chart options, how easy it is to connect a chart to your data set, and then select data series to plot in the chart. The techniques learned in this video are also applicable to XML-based data.

Extracting Useful Data from HTML Pages with XQuery
Using MobileTogether, you can create an sophisticated enterprise mobile solution, even if the data you need is only avaialble in a web page or HTML table. In this video we are demonstrating how to build a mobile solution for mobile and desktop devices that is built on top of legacy data. We will extract the data from an HTML page using the powerful HTML parser in MobileTogether, which will normalize the data so it can be processed using XQuery. This will allow us to quickly build an XML representation of that data, and then plot it on a chart.

Advanced Charting and XPath Calculations
A continuation of the example in the video above, this video demonstrates advanced charting techniques and options available for building in-house mobile reports, dashboards, forms, and other apps that include sophisticated charts and graphs.
