I’ll start by describing the kinds of apps I’ve made with this new software developer so you can understand what’s possible. The first app I made was an essential journal for birdwatching. There are spaces for the Time and Date, Notes, and up to eight photographs per record and separate spaces for the Common Name, Location, and Type of Bird. My subsequent purchases included a Travel Journal, a Dating Journal, a Log and Trip Pricer and Organizer for Travel Agents, and a Travel Journal. As you can see, the potential uses for my new software maker are practically limitless as long as individuals have the desire to organize information.
Knowing what features I want in my product is a prerequisite for using this new software maker. So I grab a pen and paper and list the categories I want to incorporate. Akin to a mind map, roughly. Different software objects will be added to my many software projects. Thus I know I need to develop them.
So, I’ll start with my software object, which will contain several fields (which we’ll refer to as “editors”). After giving my object a name, I go into its settings and change things like the Navigation Text, the caption, and the object type. Since this is a brand-new item, I’ll create a new custom object and modify it to my liking. A book might be written about the other categories of items. Therefore, we won’t get into them here. Then, I go to the ” editors ” tab and click “new editor.” I then remove my pad and add the editors I jotted down to my software object individually, giving each one a different name to avoid confusion or errors. I can choose from a wide variety of editors, including text, memo, currency, numeric, check box, radio button, and drop-down menu editors. Within the program, you can insert hypertext links pointing to your affiliate links. After adding an editor, I continue down the list, clicking “save and new” before adding the next one.
My software object is complete at this point. I must first make one to include my thing in a Software project. There is no limit to the number of software items that can be included in a Software Project, and the resulting database can store up to 4 terabytes of information. The creative potential is practically boundless because software items may be recycled into other applications.
The next step is to give our software project a name and description in the builder’s Software project section. Select “brandable” to allow other businesses to use your software under their name and logo. Next, we specify the software’s name, version, skin, category, and help file location. Pick the icon you want to use and the welcome screen you want to see.
Company information, website, help URL, update URL, installation password (if necessary), compression mode (choose between compressed web exe and uncompressed directory layout), and whether to generate a desktop or quick launch icon during installation are all entered on the Installation tab.
On the following page, we may choose the number of trials we’re willing to provide, enter a Trial Activation Serial if we have one, and even use some HTML to include an opt-in box on the trial’s initial splash screen. Excellent for attracting like-minded people in your niche to join your mailing list.
Click the plus sign, then pick the software object we just made to drop it into the bottom part. Save the file, then select the Run button from the menu at the top of the new program’s creator.
Our program is about to run, and then we can do the last bit of layout.
To begin, we go to the Navigation menu on the left and select new to create a new software object. This displays our software component so it can be modified. Using the ‘Customize Layout’ mode accessible via a right-click menu, we can reposition fields and editors as needed. When it comes to the graphical layout of our software, the sky is the limit. We can put a few together, group them all, and add blank spaces, separators, and tabs on tabs.
After we’ve arranged everything how we want it, we click the “close” button, and if the app prompts us to save, we usually decline unless we’re adding data that has already been pre-filled.
Whether you’ve finished inputting data or not, you can construct our executable by clicking the ‘create set-up’ button next to the ‘run’ button we used previously and giving the file a name. The final product of this innovative program maker is executable files that may be given to your customers.
I hope this demonstrates how straightforward it is to design your program using this new tool. You can charge for or offer free or limited access to your software. In addition, you can export designs and share them with others to be used under their name. Countless applications exist.
