Innovations for building attractive apps with improved usability and a better user experience

Omnis Studio 11.1 makes it even easier to build apps with a beautiful UI for any screen and device. It includes new features and enhancements that will enable you to build attractive, user-friendly apps:

  • Design Guides have been added to Remote Forms and Window classes to make your design and layout easier and more convenient.
  • Vertical Mode Tab Strip: You can arrange tabs in groups with enhanced appearance and behavior for tab groups and headings.
  • OBrowser: Support for content drag and drop has been added.
  • HTML Link: This is a new control to add links to a remote form.

Accessible Apps for Everyone

Digital accessibility means designing a product that can be used by all users – including not only people with physical disabilities, but also users with age-related limitations or temporary impairments (e.g. after sports injuries or accidents). Therefore accessibility in your applications is not a ‘nice to have’ but an important sales option and competitive advantage. And in large enterprises and public authorities it is simply a Must.

For several years Omnis Studio has supported WCAG 2.0 guidelines to fully support Accessibility. This has now been further enhanced by PDF Accessibility. PDF Universal Accessibility (PDF/UA) is supported to make it easy for you to create universally accessible PDF documents.
