The release of Essential Studio 2015 Volume
2 has brought a number of developments to our award-winning control suite,
ranging from new controls to enhanced functionality. In this blog, we will look
at the major new features for Orubase, our solution for
mobile app development using Microsoft Visual Studio and Apache Cordova.
The first of the new features is the Orubase Developer
Application. This new app, available in the app stores for the iOS, Android,
platforms, allows developers to load, view, and test hybrid HTML 5 and
can make changes to the source code and instantly test those alterations.

The second major new feature is the Orubase Simulator. Like
the Orubase Developer Application, it allows developers to quickly test source
code changes by previewing how an app would appear on iOS, Android, and Windows
devices. When satisfied with the preview, developers can use the Orubase
Developer Application to scan a QR code generated by the Orubase Simulator to
immediately begin testing on an actual device.
In addition to these new applications, several updated features have been included in the release. Orubase applications can now be
integrated with Cordova 5.0, and Orubase UI controls now support AngularJS and
Knockout integration. Orubase UI controls also provide TypeScript support.
All of this is in addition to the features that developers
have come to expect from Orubase. With over 30 controls; seamless Microsoft
Visual Studio, Apache Cordova, and AngularJS integration; full Direct-Trac
support; and access to native device capabilities, Orubase remains our premier
solution for developing hybrid mobile apps. You can discover its exciting uses
